Agronomics isn’t simply a project, it’s a new route to agricultural progress.
Now farmers have precision technologies, ADAS believes that progress in agriculture will come fastest if farmers with ideas or questions work together in networks, supported by advisors, researchers and industry to:
- Share explanations and understanding,
- Compare the most telling metrics,
- Pose common questions and
- Collaborate in trustworthy tests.
So ADAS is now forming and supporting networks of farmers and their supporters to address farm-specific questions with precision farming technologies, remote sensing and modern data sharing. Whether you are a farmer, a farming supporter or a researcher, we invite you to help build this exciting new farmer-centric way of learning and energising progress.
Agronomics offers to transform knowledge generation and exchange in agriculture, by combining the current science-driven model with extensive farm-driven knowledge and intelligence. Performance on farm can become increasingly measured, understood, predicted and controlled at field scale by integrating and comparing analyses of data from observations and experiments by multiple farmers.
Using bespoke software for data processing and statistical analysis, ADAS Agronomics is the leading system internationally for analysis and reporting of precision data to answer agronomic questions at field-scale.
Good tramline tests can ‘prove’ grain yield effects as small as 0.1 t/ha.
ADAS offers comprehensive split field and tramline trial guidance and services tailored to the research question and the levels of client involvement, confidentiality and dissemination required.
How can ADAS Agronomics help you and your business?
Farmers: Become more certain about how best to farm your land. Check whether your new ideas or inputs are paying off.

Advisors: Your clients can now test the uncertain elements of your advice, so you can both learn together. Farm trials need care, so farmers will need your help to provide confident answers.
Farm service industry: You can now demonstrate on your clients own farms your confidence in the products and services that you supply, and you can prove what works best.
Product manufacturers: By forming ‘clubs’ who generate their own evidence, you can both demonstrate your confidence in your products and build a better dialogue with your customers.
Precision farming suppliers: In addition to their existing roles in crop management, the value of your products and services is increased by their use in agronomic testing.
Researchers: A new exciting arena of science is opening up, where your ideas can be tested robustly ‘at the coal face’ – providing clear proof of research impact – and in particular, soil effects become testable with big datasets.
