Feeding the world is a big responsibility, and the agriculture community is feeling the pressure to feed a world of 9 billion people by the year 2050. Ask any farmer and you’ll hear that it’s getting tougher with high input costs, environmental pressures, and volatile weather. So how do we grow more food, and do sustainably?
Sustainable agriculture starts with managing social, environmental, and financial aspects equally and in balance. Decisive Farming supports this approach by offering services to farms that increase crop production and help manage costs, resulting in a typical increase in yields and profits by 10%. The impact is also improved environmental performance by better soil nutrient management and reduced CO2 emissions.
Today’s farmers live in a world where environmental concerns and increased food demand create challenges never seen before. Decisive Farming believes farms can improve the bottom line as well as the environment by following 4R Nutrient Stewardship. Simply put, the 4Rs are choosing the Right nutrient source to apply, at the Right rate, in the Right place, and at the Right time.

Integrated Pest Management
It’s estimated that 24.5 million acres of prairie cropped land are infested with herbicide-resistant weeds.
Implementing Integrated pest management (IPM) best practices is key to battling herbicide-resistant weeds. IPM is a decision-making process that utilizes all available pest management strategies.
Priority IPM actions for managing weed resistance include:
Reducing pesticide and herbicide use
Effective crop scouting
Taking action helps the environment and will also decrease input costs. To get started, you’ll need to capture accurate pest and crop development data. Knowing historical crop scouting data allows you to make informed decisions on the most effective control methods.
The Croptivity Scouting Solution is a powerful tool for growers, scouts, and retail suppliers to collaborate and resolve crop issues in a simple, integrated workflow.
