FieldAgent Crop Health Maps help you scout smarter, enabling better management decisions all season long.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but for agricultural consultants and retailers, imagery from FieldAgent by Sentera is worth much more than that. To these well-trained-eyes, subtle contrast or changes in the color of spectral imagery, such as NDVI or NDRE maps, provides critical insights into the health of a field and can inform better in-season management decisions.
FieldAgent leverages spectral imagery from drones and satellites, overlaying it with weather data, soil data and human observation to enable agricultural professionals to make more timely decisions with confidence and increase profitability.
With FieldAgent Crop Health Maps, you can access unprecedented insights into field vigor through customizable NDVI maps, zone management, a basic prescription writing tool, and dynamic color mapping. These tools help you scout smarter, enabling better management decisions all season long.
“When we’re facing challenging conditions resulting in potential crop loss, such as high winds or lack of moisture, the insights that can be pulled out of FieldAgent are invaluable.”

“With the satellite imagery and advanced weather models available through FieldAgent, we can monitor those fields and pinpoint areas of potential stress in real-time. At that point we can fly our drone to get detailed analytics on the health of that field,” Thompson continued.
The true value of FieldAgent is in the logistics of knowing when and where to be in a field, as well as why you might be there.
This value only grows when you consider the capability of FieldAgent Notifications, a model-based extension of the platform built to help you optimize your scouting resources.
If you’re managing multiple fields, one of your greatest unknowns is where and when you should deploy scouting resources.
If you can receive a Notification saying that you’ve had a wind event, now you know that scouting resources probably need to go to that field.
By adding layers of data such as drone surveys, satellite imagery, soil surveys and real-time weather data, now you can monitor the area around that Wind Notification to see if those crops are indicating stress even after that first scouting event.
The name of the game is streamlining and improving the scouting experience and the outcomes it produces.
This logistics equation and the knowledge behind it provides benefits for more than just a grower or their agronomic advisor.
Say you’re a retailer who covers a large geographical area and you get a report of a wind event by a field, receiving that Notification allows you to contact your potentially affected customers, see if they need assistance scouting and know precisely which fields justify further assessment.
That personal touchpoint helps your customers look at you as a trusted advisor and not just another salesman.
Knowing the where, why and when makes the platform precise, efficient and enormously valuable for growers, consultants and retailers alike.
