applying data driven tools to farmers' existing information
to uncover practical insights that improve the health of their soils
We apply data driven tools to farmers' existing information to uncover practical insights that improve the health of their soils.
Our first products have been co-designed with our group of pilot farms, and focus around three steps for every farmer who uses them:
visualise your data
Is your farm data sitting across a variety of platforms? Or printed off in multiple folders? Or just hard to get into a format that you can make a decision with?
Our VISUALISE tool bring together this disparate information to allow you to see clearly, in one place, all history of your fields and how they’ve been managed.
From what crops and cover crops have been in the ground at any point, to the tillage practices you’ve used, yields, soil results – we can add any information that you want to see.
understand your data
How have different fields performed over time? What have been the main drivers of higher yields – climate, soil type, different rotations, tillage?
Getting a data-led – rather than a ‘gut-feel’ answer to these questions can be complicated. You want to spend your time in the field, not poring over spreadsheets.
Our UNDERSTAND tool allows you to easily discover the answers to these questions, and start putting your data to work.
benchmark your data
At the core of Soil Benchmark’s vision is the concept of creating a community of farmers who can share best practice.
By contributing your information to the platform, you unlock insights from our whole pool of farmers. Learn from what has worked on comparable farms, and add your insights to help other farmers improve the health of their soils.
Our BENCHMARK tool allows you to see for each of your fields what practices have improved soil health and farm performance on comparable fields in our systems. We combine data from soil type and topography to climate and farm history to find the most relevant comparisons for you to learn from.
All our benchmarking tools work on the same principle – the more information you contribute to the platform, the more you will be able to access from your peers.
