Significant Reduction In End-To-End Trial Management Expenses With AGERpoint®’s Data Analytics

CHALLENGE

COLLECT AN EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF DATA TO SUPPORT PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT.

Our client works daily with crop protection products and services, fertility products and services, and plant growth regulators. They run regular trials on these services and require a large data set to make decisions. They needed to be able to not only collect an incredibly large amount of data, but also reduce trial management expenses.

SOLUTION

DATA COLLECTED USING A COMBINATION OF GROVETRACKER™ AND YIELDTRACKER™ PRODUCTS.

AGERpoint® collected data points on tree height, canopy diameter, truck diameter, canopy volume, canopy density down to the individual tree level using GroveTracker™. In addition, yield estimation on a per tree basis was also provided.

These data points were provided as a GIS formatted data file for further analysis by our client.

RESULTS

~30-50% DECREASE IN TIME-FRAME FOR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES DUE TO HIGHER DATA ACCURACY AND LESS REQUIRED TRIALS.

As AGERpoint® collects data on thousands of trees versus the typical process of only hundreds at best, the higher data accuracy of trials was able to give our client more confidence in their findings. This larger data set also allowed for identification of specific product characteristics as it related to tree growth.

In addition, as less trials were required for our client their management expenses for end-to-end trials were significantly reduced.
