The feature highlights below have been added to Adapt-N during the Spring of 2016.
Enhanced Field Recommendation Export Editor
During the recommendation export process, users now have much more fine grained control of product rounding, rates, minimums, maximums, and can dynamically see the impact of their changes on the overall recommendation (min, average, max, total pounds N).
Field Recommendation Summary Report PDF
When viewing the Field Recommendation, a PDF Report is available for download. Previously, PDFs were only available for individual zone recommendations and as part of the Field Recommendation Export.
Change Field Mode Tool
This tool now lets users switch reset a fields mode between point, zone, and grid options, with the ability to use all automatic zone creation options that would have originally been displayed during the field’s original created.
Point-Based GIS Files Accepted for Additional Layers
Previously, polygon-based shapefiles were accepted for all variable layers, and only Soil Organic Matter accepted point-based data. While polygon-based data is still recommended for all variable layers, enhancements were made to also accept point-based data for harvest population, expected yield, nitrogen application layers, and nitrate observation data layers. Please note that as-applied data submitted in point form may require additional processing time, especially when there are over 5,000 points in the file.
Advanced Rooting Depth Configuration Options
Users can now flexibly adjust rooting depth values from the Configure Field interface, either using a Shapefile or by increasing/decreasing values across the field. Rooting depth is an important agronomic input to confirm, as different management practices can have a significant impact on the crop’s rooting depth.
Zone Recommendation Yield Scenarios
Users can compare different yield goal scenarios while looking at an individual zone’s recommendation. Up to 2 additional yield goals for a zone can be selected, and Adapt-N will present side-by-side comparisons based on the simulation date specified. A comparison PDF report is also available.
Observations for Crop Emergence Data
Users can enter the observed crop emergence date and the growth model will adjust accordingly.
Observations for Nitrate Levels
Users can enter observed nitrate levels, to cause the model to re-calibrate as of the date of the test.
Variable Rate Irrigation Applications Supported
Users can now upload Shapefiles to specify variable rate irrigation applications.
