SST puts it quite succinctly: Manage data. Harvest Information. The global provider of Geographic Information System (GIS) software is offering what it calls the “Premier Desktop GIS for Agriculture.” The company boasts that its SSToolbox lets growers gather valuable information such as yield data and soil data and use it to determine the variability that exists within their fields and design specific practices to manage their unique field variability.
I caught up with Duncan Maeer (pictured left), the International Accounts Manager for SST, and he gave me a more thorough explanation of what the SSToolbox can offer farmers. Things like valuable cost savings, for example. You can listen to my interview with Duncan here: duncan-maeer-preag-08.mp3
