## Product Overview

### Description

Field Scale Male/Female Stand Count with Uniformity measures early season crop performance including measurements of stand count and related uniformity measurements across a field. This product independently quantifies metrics across male and female row planting pattern. This product utilizes high-resolution RGB imagery captured at sampled locations across a field to deliver a Spot Scout layer. Specific deliverables for this product are crop dependent.### Recommended Use Cases

- Plant Population
- Seedling Emergence
- Seed Vigor
- Plant Uniformity
- Stand Quality
- Plant Growth
