Data Management

A World of Data

Data collected from farm fields is becoming more and more valuable. Whether it is used for determining value of land or basing decisions in season the data has increasingly become more important. From remote sensing, weather stations, soil moisture/temperature probes, imagery from planes, drones, or satellites, to as-applied planting/spray/harvest data the number of layers of information from your fields is mind-boggling.

The Sunrise Precision Solutions (SPS) data team can help navigate the complex layers to try and provide clarity from the noise. We utilize new tools, crop nutrient modeling, satellite imagery, and weather information, with the old(er) tools like GIS platforms to compile and analyze data to help you maximize return on investment and increase yield. This is done through variable rate planting prescriptions, nitrogen management through modeling, crop performance through imagery, and weather impacts with weather/nutrient models. 

We know it’s a complex world of data, and will get more complex in the future. We test the tools, constantly investigate new opportunities, and work to slow the pace of advancement with understanding on our part to communicate the benefits in the field to you.

The SPS data team is ready to help now and prepared for the future.


Summarizing Your Data

Data has always been around, but little has ever been done with it. The Sunrise Precision Solutions team summarizes data on a field by field and trial by trial basis in a form that allows each customer to see how the variables across their farm performed and what products or varieties proved to be have the best results.

Soil Sampling

What is your soil telling you? We have created a library of resources to educate you on the value and importance of soil sampling, and how the data collected from soil sampling will help improve your harvest intake.

4R Nutrient Stewardship

As Sunrise continues to advance, our focus also rests on the environment and our surrounding world. We believe there is more that can be done to keep our water and nutrient sources pure and have adapted the 4R Nutrient Stewardship concept. 4R Nutrient Stewardship provides a framework to achieve cropping system goals, such as increased production, increased farmer profitability, enhanced environmental protection and improved sustainability.

Properly managed fertilizers support cropping systems that provide economic, social and environmental benefits. On the other hand, poorly managed nutrient applications can decrease profitability and increase nutrient losses, potentially degrading water and air.

To achieve those goals, the 4R concept incorporates the:
