In 2019, Federated invested in the Sirrus agronomy software to better serve growers. SST, the in-field grower/agronomist interface, has proven its worth since then by enabling Federated Agronomists to deliver agronomic recommendations in real time to growers via the Sirrus app on their iPhones or iPads.

  • “Sirrus helps agronomists and farmers collaborate on farming decisions by making field data accessible and easy to collect.” 
  • – Sirrus App Online

Putting “geospatial data” to work at field level, the combination of SST and agronomy expertise allows Federated Agronomists to assess fields more accurately and make targeted recommendations. In the fall, that target is nutrient and weed management for the next crop.

The SST Sirrus mobile app allows agronomists to capture real-time information and share multiple layers of data, including:

  • - soil samples based on a grid or management zone,
  • - EC mapping,
  • - soil survey maps,
  • - harvest data,
  • - weather data,
  • - crop health, and
  • - crop pests.

Rod Gustafson, Federated agronomist at the Albertville location, noted last year when Federated first began using Sirrus that it has the ability to “use field imagery to assist in crop scouting, collect in-field observations with photos, record field activities, and share synchronized information with growers and agronomists.”
