OneSoil is a free-for-all precision farming platform built to help you manage your fields in a more efficient way.

The platform helps monitor changes on the fields, plan farming operations, increase the productivity of your fields and save resources.

How does OneSoil work?

The OneSoil platform is based on machine learning technologies and multispectral satellite imagery. 

We manually marked thousands of fields. Then, based on the collected information, we trained our algorithm to detect them independently. You no longer need to go around your farm on a GPS-equipped ATV or order this service from specialists — OneSoil determines the boundaries of your field automatically.

To show the fresh vegetation map, we use Sentinel-2 images. With these images, chlorophyll, a green pigment in the shoots, is clearly visible. The vegetation index, NDVI, values for plants range from 0 to 1.

What’s the pricing?

OneSoil is free to use. This is our principle. We help farmers from all over the world switch to precision farming and show how easy it is. At an early stage, you don't need to buy expensive equipment or install complex software. To evaluate your field state and plant condition, you just need to open the OneSoil platform in your browser or download the OneSoil Scouting app to your smartphone.

More about the OneSoil mission

Okay, sounds great. What do I do after I signed up?

Please check OneSoil User Guide. We explained how mobile and web apps help farmers and agronomists with their tasks throughout the growing season.

Find your fields on the map and save the crop rotation in your account. 

Monitor plant development by looking at the changes on the vegetation maps. Select a field and it will split into different coloured sections depending on crop growth. This vegetation data is updated every 3-5 days except the days when the field was covered with clouds.

Understand your fields better with "Insights", like the weather forecast, latest vegetation updates and tips from the OneSoil team.

Leave notes from the office or during field scouting — the app will determine your location. This makes the OneSoil platform a convenient tool for identifying and resolving yield issues (such as lodging, flooding, diseases and other anomalies) before they become irreversible.

On what devices can I use OneSoil?

OneSoil Scouting app is available on iOS and Android phones and tablets. You can use the handy web app on your computer. The app is available in Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox browsers.
