Application: Methods for generating soil maps and application prescriptions (Patent ID: US20240062433A1)

The patent filed by Bayer AG describes methods and systems for generating an irrigation map in an agricultural field. The computer-implemented method involves instructing a user to draw an irrigation boundary on a map, receiving user inputs defining the boundary's point and dimension, and appending the shape of the irrigation boundary to the map based on these inputs. The system includes a processing unit and memory with an executable program that configures the unit to perform the method steps, including displaying soil data maps and seed planting prescriptions relative to the irrigation boundary shape.

The method and system allow users to create precise irrigation maps by defining boundaries and dimensions on a map of an agricultural field. By incorporating soil data maps and seed planting prescriptions, users can make informed decisions about seed populations based on different soil types within the irrigation boundary. The system suggests dimensions for the irrigation boundary and can display the map to users via an internet browser, enhancing accessibility and usability for farmers and agricultural professionals looking to optimize irrigation practices.
