FIELD TRIALS

Farmers are changing the way they choose hybrids

VISUAL FARMS’ recommended hybrids:
Improved yields
up to 53% better than whole field average yields
Increased net farm income
up to $218/acre
Eight out of 9 VISUAL FARMS’ recommended hybrids outperformed other hybrids planted in the same field.
The A.I. hybrid-trained yield simulation system with solar observations predicted:
Historical blind yields
Within 100% of actual yields for the whole farm, and
Field level yields within 98% of actual yields.
In-season
Optimal planting and harvest times accurately in the top 6 inches of soil
Corn plant growth stages within a day
Widened the decision making window from 2 weeks to 3 months by predicting yields consistently with 95% accuracy in June through October.

FARMING SYSTEMS ARE OUR BUSINESS

...we build them!

OUR AI TOOLS

New Knowledge to Farmers is New Power

Human-managed food-producing ecosystems are systems within systems. We account for three interacting principal components: farms, landscapes and agri-climate in order to accurately represent food production outcomes.

AGRICLIMATE

Our agri-climate system is plant-specific. It accounts for solar energy that hits the plant leaf directly with other key climate and soils inputs. All are managed by A.I. systems to accurately predict plant growth stages and responses.

VFARMS

A Tract in the Largest Farm in Kentucky
One of 46 Tracts in a 17,000 Acre Farm in Kentucky
Vfarms (US Patent #799754) is the only system of its kind that can instantaneously connect farms to landscapes and track their management, crops, fields, risks and successes over time.

GEOCONVERSATIONS

Built upon VFARMS, Geoconversations will become a field-based geo-social network for all farmers, businesses, food manufacturers, markets and consumers. It’s a national virtual coffee shop for technology  marketing and information about what’s happening now?

BESTSEEDCHOICE ™

Our seeds databases contain virtually the entire available market derived over the most recent three years from 700,000 field trials describing 13,368 corn varieties from 174 brands. Farmers select from among the top 50 hybrids best suited to their farms as ranked by yield and performance stability together with other key factors such as maturity date, moisture and more…

HYBRID YIELD SIMULATOR

Growth Dynamics - Forecast Model, Emergence to Maturity
Built upon neural networks and other AI techniques with Agriculture-specific domain knowledge. Trained with the agri-climate system over  5 years on the performance of 18,000 corn hybrids, 16,000 soybean and 3,000 wheat hybrids in controlled field trials. Results are rational, accountable and validated.
Over time, they become a farm’s own Machine Learning system harnessing Big Data and integrating on-farm practices to offer comprehensive, data-driven, and actionable recommendations.
