According to the press-release of the Cropio company, relief (topographic) maps are available now in Cropio system.
Why relief matters?
Relief can significantly decrease productivity of fields. Excessive or concentrated precipitations wash off seeds and fertilizers from the hills. It is more efficient to manage relief risks with Cropio since now.
Managing your lowland and relief risk efficiently:
- You can allocate different amount of nitrogen on downhill areas and hilly areas when creating application task in cropio — ensuring more efficient use of fertilizer.
- When planning harvest campaigns — check grain moisture levels on lowland areas — excessive grain moisture on lowland can spoil harvests from multiple fields — put such fields last in the row to harvest.
- When analyzing non-performing areas check relief and precipitation level of particular fields.
- While planning crop rotation — check relief and allocate less demanding and cost intensive crops to fields with high risks associated with relief.
