“The program is a process of discovery and learning. Farmers get to see what’s going on in their fields with their management practices. They also get to see what’s happening across the county landscapes from other local farmers.”
This case study will provide you with insights from three Jasper County farmers and their county group leader regarding their participation in INfield Advantage.
Jasper County farmers began participating in INfield Advantage in 2010, the first year for the program in Indiana. During that pilot season, 17 farmers conducted aerial imagery and guided stalk sampling trials on 39 fields across Jasper County. With this information, the participants were able to better understand their farms’ data and adapt management practices accordingly.
With INfield Advantage, participants receive personalized, field-specific data coupled with local aggregated results from other participants. Search through our database and see what other INfield Advantage participants are seeing in their counties.*
