Validator consolidates current and historical agronomic data, to show how production on your fields benchmarks regardless of weather. Developed with insights from 150 square foot precision, Validator has the most comprehensive and highest quality data set available.

Knowing the benchmark means knowing where to focus your efforts.

 

Validator shows yield, yield gap, and ROI potential in bushels and dollars, allowing growers to benchmark by percentile or bushels per acre. Management zones can be exported as KML or Shapefiles to share with agronomists and other advisors. This powerful tool is based on our proprietary 1.3B samples of yield, carefully collected across millions of acres and 26 states – as well as 20 years of detailed weather matched to the sample locations.

Data Visualizations show individual field performance against benchmarks.

Ag Data Science Done Right

The Main Street Data forecasting model leverages a massive amount of yield and weather data elements to identify and interpret causes, as well as measure, monitor, and forecast a wide variety of outcomes. This crop forecasting model is based on MSD’s proprietary Crop Stage approach, applying machine learning to billions of samples of yield and 10s of billions of field and weather-related data elements. The analytical interpretations derived from this powerful forecasting model are valuable to a wide range of users, including growers, traders, insurers, lenders, agronomists, and co-ops.

See How Human Intelligence is Transforming Data Science.

Data Elements Include:

  • soil characteristics
  • water holding capacity
  • water availability at multiple depths
  • trillions of historical weather data elements
  • weather forecasts ranging from 15 days to 6 months
  • 1.3B yield samples across 26 states
