Data management platforms are becoming increasingly important in everyday farming. With the ISARIA CONNECT data management system, ISARIA offers a competent solution for easy management of your data. As the heart of the ISARIA system, this platform also creates the basis for site-specific management. The new functions now make the system even more flexible to use. We have summarized the most important things for you.

The ISARIA CONNECT data management system

ISARIA CONNECT is the platform for efficient data management. In the online application, you can manage orders and create application cards for site-specific management of agricultural land. It doesn't matter whether you are a contractor or do your main or part-time farming. Getting started with the digital organization of orders is free of charge and regardless of the size of the company. These orders are created in ISARIA CONNECT for the respective surfaces to be processed. Here, the user can set all desired parameters, e.g. for applying fertiliser or growth regulators. This data is then sent either via a USB stick or with the plant sensor ISARIA PRO Active On request, it can also be transmitted to the tractor via an online connection. The driver can then do his job according to the previously defined parameters — so nothing can go wrong anymore.

What's new in the ISARIA CONNECT data management system?

In ISARIA CONNECT Is the satellite data now also available from Sentinel satellites available from the European Space Agency's Copernicus program. The satellites provide the system with data on the biomass growth in your fields over a period of several years. To do this, you first create your surfaces in ISARIA CONNECT. This is simply done by uploading a file with the search information or by drawing it manually — it works quickly and self-explanatory. If the areas are integrated into ISARIA CONNECT, the data management system provides you with data on temperature, precipitation and biomass growth for each area from the current year or previous years. To do this, you choose for which parameter and from which year you want to view data. It is also possible to view data from several years at the same time. This makes it very easy to compare the data from different years. This data can be used as a basis for managing your land.

Easy creation of application cards

Biomass monitoring maps can be created from the satellite data, which can be used as a basis for decision-making for plant protection, fertilization or irrigation, for example. Application maps can now also be created from biomass maps. In addition, various functions have been integrated in which application maps are calculated from previous plant sensor scans. For example, the new expert systems for winter rapeseed and potato crops allow an even more precise and efficient application of fertilizer. In addition, application cards can now be created in ISARIA CONNECT with the proven single-point mode known from ISARIA sensor systems in a very simple way. This very universal feature can be used for a very wide range of crops and applications. Using the single-point mode of the ISARIA plant sensors, the biomass index and nitrogen uptake during the crossing are determined. Based on the measured values and your crop production requirements, the system then makes decisions for an adapted fertilization strategy.

Things get smooth with a plant sensor

The use of satellite data as an application map in ISARIA CONNECT is a good start to a modern, efficient and efficient way of managing your land. If you want to get the most out of your area, we recommend using ISARIA plant sensors ISARIA PRO Active and ISARIA PRO Compact. These are mounted on the tractor and collect data on biomass growth and the nitrogen supply of your plants while driving. The ISARIA plant sensor measures nitrogen uptake. This enables precise application even in later EC stages. This guarantees highly up-to-date data on the state of plants in your fields. While applying fertilizer, for example, you can generate data about the fertilizer requirements of your inventory. The system automatically controls the application rate, within the framework of your specifications and the selected fertilization strategy, during the crossing. This offers a major advantage over satellite data. On average, the satellites provide new data every five days. If there is heavy cloud cover, the gap between the usable measurements can also be significantly larger. Especially in spring, this is too long a period without data collection. Five days can make a big difference in plant populations.

Optimum results with the plant sensor

Since the data collected no longer match the current state of development of the population, for example, a nitrogen application based on this data would result in a significant miscalculation of the actual current nutrient requirement and thus possibly lead to an oversupply or undersupply. In addition, forest edges, fields and defects falsify the application maps calculated from satellite data. This problem does not exist with a plant sensor mounted on the tractor. This means that the current plant status is always determined in real time without delay and border influences. Application maps, e.g. from satellite information, are therefore a good introduction to the site-specific application — but if you want to achieve optimal results, use an ISARIA plant sensor.
