Update of My Data Plant online portal

A new function of My Data Plant: crop protection management

My Data Plant will be presenting new functions in November. The biomass and application maps for seeding and fertilization will be completed by crop protection management. This function allows the sub-area specific application of plant growth regulators and fungicides according to demand, thus saving resources in the process. My Data Plant is now able to provide all relevant management steps over the crop vegetation season

The new application maps for crop protection management offer several benefits: the optimized use of plant growth regulators, for example, ensures more homogeneous crops. This is achieved by higher application for growing plants and results in reduced weaker zones. The resultant crop harmonization leads to an increase in yield and improved harvesting.

In case of fungicides, the focus is on savings effects. A more efficient use of fungicides reduces the application rate, while maintaining the same level of efficiency. The costs of the use of fungicides can thus be significantly reduced.

When adding additional functions, the biomass maps have also been updated as the basis for the application maps and now have an even better resolution. All innovations are implemented in the new version (3.0) of the online portal.

The new biomass and application maps can be tested at Agritechnica by using your fields. You are welcome to visit us at the "agrirouter" in hall 15, booth G38.
