myJohnDeere makes it even more easy to use the eoMapper prescription files for precision agriculture. While we develop the automated process you can follow these step to get the data straight from the eoMapper portal to your John Deere tractor.
Log in to your eoMapper account
If you do not have a log in it is easy to create and only requires an e-mail. The login is there so that we can help you to find your files and processes.
Find your field
The easiest way is to got to process choose Precicion Farming, search for the nearest town and draw the field with the tool, save the geometry with a field name and start the process. The field should be under 150 ha and the process will take about one minute.
Process for the most recent cloud free Sentinel-2 imagery and distribute the load
The process analyse the available Sentinel-2 imagery and calculate a MSAVI2 vegetation index on the most recent and cloud free image available. We will soon make all the cloud free data available for time series analyses and seasonal comparisons, all to make your decisions better.
Make your prescription file
The prescription field is made on a combination of your knowledge of the field and the vegetation index. The metric is kg/N per hectare. but could be substituted with e.g. litre or P if that is desired for pest control or application of other nitrogens or combined fertilisers.
Download in the John Deere format
A shapfile in the John Deere file structure.
The result is a zip-file that should be unzipped and uploaded to your myJohnDeere account.
Press the files button under the tools section in the myJohnDeere panel. The files to upload are the .shp, .dbf and .shx. and must be chosen separately.
Assigne the file to an organisation
The shape file will be uploaded as a .zip file and must be assigned to your organisation.
Transfer to a relevant equipment
Transfer the file to the equipment that should use it.
And start the application for better harvests.
