1. Why should I use PROFIT LAYERS®?

This is the most important question we get asked, and one that we’re happy to answer. In short, PROFIT LAYERS® is here to help you accurately see the whole picture of your field and farm’s profits. Your PROFIT LAYERS® results help you make impactful, data-driven changes that increase your farm’s profit potentials and brings more value to your precision ag data.


Looking around, it is easy to notice that our ag industry is advancing toward data-driven farming approaches, which help growers maximize their profits by providing evidence-based farm solutions. With the help of improved data collection systems, most farms are now tracking their in-field operations, like harvest, seeding, applications, and tillage. The final step toward providing evidence-based solutions is to interpret your data into actionable insights that help you increase your farm’s profit potential.


Questions like "Did my extra spray pass pay off?" or "Did the new hybrid justify its extra seed cost?" can now be answered with the location-specific evidence to back you up. You need to be able to see the whole picture when considering your bottom line. That is our goal and purpose with PROFIT LAYERS®.

2. How long does PROFIT LAYERS® take?

The short answer is: you can generate a PROFIT LAYERS® map in less than 5 minutes.


We know you have a lot to manage, so we designed PROFIT LAYERS® to be easy and accessible. During the design process, we kept these three principles in mind:

  1. Automatically handle all precision ag data conversions and processing (so you don’t have to worry about it).

  2. Allow for full customization and options, but make sure our users aren’t ever required to start from scratch.

  3. Create tools that speed up workflows and encourage accuracy.

We delivered on these principles by building PROFIT LAYERS® with:

  1. Direct data connection pipelines with our partner platforms (John Deere Operations Center, Climate FieldView, and CNH Equipment), which securely process and load your precision data into your PROFIT LAYERS® account in just a few clicks.

  2. Estimated prices automatically included for all operations. We try to estimate your input costs and pre-load them into your account, so you never start from scratch. If you need to change or update those prices, you can easily do so.

  3. The Price Converter, which lets you change your crop and input prices, across your entire farm, in just a few seconds. The Price Converter automatically handles conversions between prices and quantities in different units, so you can rest assured that your prices are accurate.
