Producing more with less has long been the mantra of agricultural technology. But to really maximize that on every plant in a highly variable field requires digital infrastructure, which is exactly what LandScan CEO Dan Rooney says they can provide.

Rooney… “You know, there are all kinds of advances in agricultural technology and engineering, science and analysis. It shows that, you know, surge seeds or irrigation emitters or nutrient plans work a certain way in test plots. But when you try to deploy these technologies in larger environments, there is no information infrastructure, there are no maps that tell you how to deploy this technology: emitters or seeds or nutrients. The cards are not there. So what happens is the producer is forced to make do with this lowest common denominator. Well, they have to choose a number, and so they end up doing one size, which takes away a ton of optimization opportunities for not having sites characterized to that extent.
