FarmShots analyzes satellite and drone imagery of farms to help reduce field-scouting efforts by as much as 90 percent. According to the company, when integrated with My John Deere Operations Center, it is possible to create prescription maps based on plant health and upload these prescriptions directly to John Deere equipment for fast and easy treatment.

Anyone with a free My John Deere account and organization in Operations Center can use FarmShots’ agriculture software to access Planet’s high-resolution satellite imagery. With access, users can import field boundaries into FarmShots directly from Operations Center; export the plant health data layer to the field analyzer; generate prescription maps for GreenStar 2630 displays; and compare plant health with yield maps year to year.
