This is an intensive management program designed to optimize the productivity of all of your field operations and raise profit levels. Crop Services focuses on four main objectives: productivity of field equipment operations, crop inputs, field productivity, and profit levels. Our certified crop consultants use data from your farm as well as zone management and machine productivity measurements to accomplish these goals.
John Deere’s Operations Center is a data management solution that plays a significant role, both before a producer goes out into the field and after each operation is completed. It allows users to manage equipment information, production data, and farm operations from a single website. Producers can collect data more easily, access it more readily, and analyze it more effectively. Utilize JDLink Connect, and never have to carry a flash drive again. Growers who are capturing agronomic data are usually doing so to enable and improve decision making. Users need to have tools to evaluate the data, ensure its accuracy, and take action on it.
As operations grow, keeping a pulse on what is happening with equipment and operators at any given time becomes more of a challenge. The John Deere Operations Center makes this easier with features such as Location History, Remote Display Access, and MyOperations and MyAnalyzer apps that allow a manager to see what is going on anywhere, anytime they choose. With a bird’s-eye view of the farm and the ability to remote view into the cab, the Operations Center is an essential tool for today’s progressive grower.
Growers do not farm alone. Growers collaborate with retailers, input providers, software companies, and many others to farm precisely. John Deere recognizes that growers must quickly and easily share their farm data with partners in order to make timely and accurate decisions. Enabling software applications to directly connect to the John Deere Operations Center allows growers to collaborate with their preferred partners. For needs that are not met with a John Deere solution, John Deere encourages growers to identify a connected solution.
Growers rely on many people inside and outside of their organization such as staff, John Deere dealers, agronomists, landlords, and crop input manufacturers to help them make decisions about their agronomics, machines, and more. The John Deere Operations Center makes the process of sharing machine and agronomic data easy and customizable. In the Operations Center, growers can establish a sharing relationship with staff and partners and electronically share a view of their operational information automatically. This allows them to better control and secure their data while making it available to those who can help them gain insights that increase productivity and reduce costs.
