Tractor Time by Agrible® now boasts even more accurate field workability status and soil temperature predictions

Tractor Time now boasts even more accurate field workability status and soil temperature predictions, especially for your no-till and minimum-till fields. While there are various economic and environmental advantages to conservation till systems, we recognize the challenges that arise when managing such fields.

With these management plans, fields are left undisturbed after harvesting and through planting the next crop, leading to increased levels of crop residue. The increased residue reduces soil erosion and conserves soil moisture, not to mention the savings realized on fuel and labor. Our upgraded residue model makes it easier to understand the process by mimicking natural decay of the post-harvest crop residue and by also automatically reducing the residue based on your tillage events recorded in Field Story for each of your fields. Together these components of Tractor Time result in maximum accuracy for soil temperatures and conditions of fields on your farm, allowing you to plan your next steps with confidence.
