Cleaning and Editing Operation Data
Most sensors collecting operation data will some errors and problems with calibration.

In particular multiple machines cause strips in the data which makes data use limited.

PCT Agcloud has learned automated correction workflows embedded to run when data hits our platform. PCT Agcloud also has many manual tools for those few cases where our automation doesn’t do the trick.

Basic Zones
PCT Agcloud has many different types of zone creation and any layer can be zoned. Whether it makes sense to create a zone from a specific layer is purely in the hands of the users.

Create zones from single layers intersecting two or three layers is all doable in our Zone Locate tool.
Manually locates soil samples or use our advanced soil site locator.

If your looking for more advanced clustering and sampling locating for soil classification work check out Advanced Zones under our speciality solutions.

The example below looks at the intersecting zones of and EC survey and Landscape Change which is identify changes in the landscape that influence water movement.


Yield can be overlaid to identify the yield capacity of a zone in any give year or crop type.

Creating a Prescription

PCT Agcloud prescription writing tools allow the user to zone data in different ways and enter in rates to apply in a planting or spraying operation. 

PCT Agcloud will send a shape file to John Deere Operation Centre and direct to a connected machine, Agworld and CNH. 

Rx can be used to create prescriptions for Seeding/Planting and application of a single product for one or multiple fields.  Once zoned enter your rates


Strip Trial Analysis

Strip trials contain replicated zones of varying applications or management practices (variety, fertilizer, seed rate, tillage, etc.). They are used to compare different treatments so that the grower can analyze them and make management decisions based on the results. 

The Analytics tool in PCT Agcloud contains a strip trial application, which is specialized for helping growers visualize the differences between strip trials.

A tutorial video outlining this process can be found at this link:



In the examples shown below, strips of different varieties will be compared to yield. 

1. The strip trial analysis tool can be accessed in the Analytics tool by selecting the desired field and clicking the ‘Strip Trial’ tab as seen in the example below, or by clicking the ‘Strip Trial Analysis’ button in the Right Click Menu of the View tool. Once you are in the strip trial analysis application, select the desired season (left column), layer types (right column), and yield/remote layers. Then, click ‘Run Analysis’.

2. After the analysis has been run you will see the zone maps of the selected layers. You can edit the zones, names, colors, etc. of these either of these maps using their respected ‘Edit’ buttons. 

3. Next, is the yield comparison tool. Select the desired season and layer by which to compare the strip trial to. A graph and multiple tables will appear below. Additional layers can be added to the analysis via the ‘2nd layer’ dropdown.

4. Above the treatment analysis tables, you have the option to enter dollar amounts for the yield revenue. After entering this data, the tables below will display calculations based on these costs. 

5. Lastly, at the bottom of the page, enter the desired product and application date and click ‘Print Report’ to receive a pdf. form of the analysis.
