Get to Know: Location Deep Dive with Arable’s Advanced Analytics

By Jamie Hardy & Levon Minassian

Introducing: Location Deep Dive

We recently published new crop growth dashboards on Arable Mobile (Android / iOS). This week we are releasing our first version for Arable Web, Location Deep Dive, which drills into season-long growth metrics at any one of an organization’s deployed locations.

Get Full Visibility at Any Location

On the Water tab, you’ll see the history of water coming in and going out of a location over the course of your season, to help you understand how water flows there, what you may need to manage, and when to do so. Graphs on this tab include precipitation in the context of ETc, crop water balance, and soil moisture (if you have a connected probe).

New Analysis Tools

These insights provide more than just ways to visualize your data. They also forge new pathways to idea-sparking and decision-making, including:

  • Multi-data point visualization: Compare ETc, Rainfall, and VPD in one chart to understand the complex ways water impacts yield and quality.
  • Easy export and sharing: All visualizations can be easily exported to a spreadsheet and shared with other users.
  • Daily, weekly and monthly summaries: Rainfall and other variables are summarized by day, week and month to allow for easier assessment of seasonal patterns. To see these, right-click on the graph at the point in the time series you want to view:

New Temperature Indices

We are also including some new threshold definitions:

  • Heat Stress Days: Max temp over 36C (96F)
  • Freeze Days: Min temp below 2C (36F)
  • Warm Nights: Min temp above 22C (72F)
  • Cool Days: Max temp below 18C (64F)
  • Diurnal Temp Flux: Daily difference between max & min temps
  • Good Sunlight Days: Sunlight hours 11 or more

Sunny days inform growth patterns and can also correlate to stress and disease pressure.

This is Just the Beginning

Location Deep Dive is packed with new insights. We’ll continue to iterate on them in the coming months, and hope they plant the seeds to imagine possibilities beyond what you see here. We strive to make our data useful, and think that these analysis tools will make your job that much easier. We developed them with customers who reached out to us asking for more insights, analysis, and ways to think about their data, and we’d love to work with you, too.
