SSToolkit provides the software tools necessary to meet the needs of today's farmer. SSToolkit is an economical GIS designed for farmers who have access to the more comprehensive analytical services provided by their local input supplier or crop consultant.
Geographic Information System
A GIS links information to its location. Layers of information are organized, stored, analyzed, and queried for management decision-making. SSToolkit uses the farm field boundary to organize all pertinent information relating to the field, such as soil types, soil fertility, yield results, hybrid/variety selections, remotely-sensed imagery, aerial photos, chemical applications, field scouting, and more.
Putting It All Together
Access to this information enables people to make better management decisions, lower input costs, provide better stewardship of the land, and increase yields. Choices like variety selection can be made with the benefit of this information. Chemical applications can be selective and focused. Crop stresses can be pinpointed long before they are visible to the naked eye. It doesn’t matter if you are approaching precision agriculture from the perspective of producer, retailer, agronomist, or consultant. If the technology is properly applied it can benefit everyone.
