Prescriptive Software Possibilities for Turfgrass Management
Western Ag Innovations is striving to develop prescriptive software similar to the PRS™ Nutrient Forecaster to be used in turfgrass management. As such, we are gathering turfgrass-related research to be used in aggregate to develop prescriptive management tools for both turfgrass and urban landscaping applications. Find out more about the future possibility of sublicensing our PRS™ technology and prescriptive software.
The PRS™ Nutrient Forecaster
Western Ag Innovations, teamed with its sublicensees, Western Ag Labs and Western Ag Labs North Dakota has helped farmers across western North America reach optimal economic yields , despite increasing input costs. Through our PRS™ technology, we collect soil nutrient data and then simulate environment parameters to develop crop nutrition plans for a variety of agronomic crops. Similar technology can be applied to managing soil fertility requirements for turfgrass and urban landscaping in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.
On October 28, 2004 in Waterloo, ON, the University of Saskatchewan and Western Ag Innovations Inc. were awarded with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)'s Synergy Award for developing and commercializing a new way of measuring the soil nutrients crops need.
