Canadians, Europeans Gain Access To Trimble’s PurePixel Solution

Trimble announced today that its PurePixel Precision Vegetation Health solution is now available in Canada and Europe. Previously the solution was available only in the U.S. In addition, Trimble now provides PurePixel data for download using the common shapefile format, and it has added a chlorophyll index map—an improved technology for assessing raw image suitability that enables agronomists to eliminate poor quality images when assessing plant health.

PurePixel maps are an agronomic tool available through Trimble’s Connected Farm solution that provides farmers and their trusted advisors with an assessment of a field’s crop health or maturity level based on calibrated vegetation indices. The latest addition to the solution is the PurePixel Chlorophyll Index map and enhanced cloud and shadow detection algorithms. The PurePixel Chlorophyll Index map separates the different vegetation index contributors, enabling detection of chlorophyll information independent of other vegetative factors. This gives users the ability to assess crop variability and differences in maturity within and between fields. This information can lead to better harvest decisions and maximized profits by enabling the user to see which fields are most ready for harvest and which are not. For grain crops, this can minimize drying and storing costs because fields are not harvested too early. In addition, it can also help growers with harvest logistics since they know which fields are ready for harvesting. PurePixel maps can also be downloaded in the common shapefile format, enabling users to access the PurePixel data in applications outside of Connected Farm, such as Farm Works Software or an alternative farm management software application.

“Trimble is committed to expanding both the capabilities and geographies of the Connected Farm solution so more farmers across the globe have access to tools that can aid in decision making and improve farm operations,” said Levi Kettle, Connected Farm business area director of Trimble’s Agriculture Division. “We’ve enhanced the PurePixel solution by adding another map that enables farmers to more efficiently determine the health and maturity of their crops using Connected Farm.”

In addition to PurePixel, Trimble also offers agronomic services for farmers and their trusted advisors: RainWave Contour Map enables farmers to visualize and measure variations in rainfall amounts within an entire field or farm; the Soil Information System (SIS) solution is a revolutionary soil analysis mapping technology; and the Connected Farm Advisor application allows for collaboration on the creation, editing and sharing of variable rate prescription maps based on soil sample data.

PurePixel images are accessed through the Connected Farm, which provides one central location for retrieving key information impacting farm operations such as rainfall totals, weather forecasts, commodity tracking, planting coverage, yield mapping, fleet management, aerial imaging, irrigation monitoring and control, and collaboration with a trusted advisor. With this information a farmer can make better decisions about their operation. For example, knowing daily rainfall totals can determine whether irrigation is needed, while wind speed data may be the deciding factor on whether to spray a given field or delay the activity.

The PurePixel solution is currently available, and can be purchased using the Connected Farm Web site.
