Trends in precision farming, regulations and public oversight require new focus on ag data. Testing laboratories have long supplied the industry with data for managing crops and better input utilization. Multiple formats of data transfer have emerged as well as multiple terminologies for the same analysis. Soil, tissue and nematode components are now operational. Other features are being added.
Modus was developed by data users, testing labs and FMIS (farm management information system) originators to standardize data terminology and transfer. It supports greater accuracy in data tracking, analysis and in crop planning. 4R focus on precise recommendations is greatly enhanced.
The session is designed for CCAs, precision agronomists, data users and lab personnel. Current and planned Modus Standard practitioners will conduct this workshop and discussion. Perspective will be offered by industry users and researchers.
