The OneSoil platform combines apps for agricultural consultants, farmers, machinery, and services dealers (e.g., soil analysis). In this article, we'll provide more details about the tools and how they differ.
The OneSoil web app
The OneSoil web app works on personal computers and laptops. You can open it via app.onesoil.ai. Our apps are compatible with Google Chrome, Safari, and Firefox browsers.
The web app is ideal for field analysis and farm management. You can view the latest NDVI, see the field's satellite imagery, and analyze vegetation and weather charts for the whole season. We also recommend the web version for field management. This is where you can organize and create an efficient crop rotation plan for several seasons.
The app also lets you manage notes and customize the view of farm fields to your preference, e.g., by crop or contrasted NDVI.
Features available exclusively in the web app:
Visualize data from onboard computers of the agricultural machinery to analyze the quality of field operations throughout the season and yield after harvest.
Monitor charts of accumulated precipitation, growing degree days, and NDVI changes for each of your fields to plan field operations.
Upload any number of fields at once, along with data on crops and yields.
Automatically allocate crops for crop rotation.
Compare NDVI values and satellite images from different dates.
The OneSoil Scouting mobile app
Mobile app features that aren't available in the web version:
Sharing fields and notes. For example, you can send links to colleagues, allowing them to view the content without being able to make any changes to it.
Offline mode if there's no internet connection in the fields. Once a good connection is restored, the data will be uploaded to the account and synchronized across all devices.
Route navigation to note coordinates. This allows you to quickly inspect specific areas of the field that require attention.
Spraying time recommendations. You can view our recommendations for the best spraying time and the weather forecast.
Notifications about new NDVI images. Receive notifications about changes in the NDVI index for your fields and updates about new features from OneSoil.
The OneSoil Yield app: the Pro version for precision farming
The OneSoil Yield app helps determine which fields are suitable for variable-rate application by productivity zones, create prescription maps with control strips to properly interpret results, conduct field trials, and analyze their results.
Unique possibilities in OneSoil Yield:
A tool for creating prescription maps for variable-rate seeding, fertilization, or spraying based on recent NDVI imagery or historical productivity zones.
A tool for soil sampling. Soil sampling map export is available in .shp, .pdf, .kml, or .gpx formats.
Integrations with other platforms and equipment manufacturers. Only in the Pro version integration with the John Deere Operations Center is available, which allows you to transfer prescription maps to the machinery and import yield maps back to the platform for analysis.
Field boundary export. Unlike the free web app, OneSoil Yield lets you export field boundaries to use in other apps.
Field grouping. Organize fields into groups based on your preferred parameters. For example, by clients if you're a consultant or by smaller farms if you own a large farm.
