Trimble's Connected Farm Now Includes A Field Data Management Solution For Farmers And Their Advisors

BOONE, Iowa, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it has launched two applications that work together within its Connected Farm™ Web-based management solution that provide farmers and their trusted advisors with more detailed field information, which can enable better farm-management decisions.

The announcement was made at the Farm Progress Show.

The solution consists of two Web applications: Connected Farm Field, a field data management tool for the farmer; and Connected Farm Advisor, a field data management tool for the farmer's trusted advisor. Both applications allow for the management of fundamental field information such as client, farm and field names as well as application or coverage data associated with those fields and crop seasons for which field work was performed. Users can easily import their field data into Connected Farm in one of three ways—by using the Connected Farm Scout app; by using Office Sync, Trimble's office to field wireless data exchange service; or through the new File Sync utility that allows a user to upload data from various industry in-cab displays via a USB flash drive.

In addition to field data management, the Field application includes tools for ordering, managing and viewing PurePixel™ crop health maps, including the ability to download these maps for use in other data management platforms or desktop software tools including Farm Works® Software. In addition, users can also access tools for ordering, managing and viewing the new RainWave® Contour Maps, which provide precise rainfall amounts within an entire field or farm.

For the farmer's trusted crop advisor, the Connected Farm Advisor application allows for collaboration on the creation, editing and sharing of variable rate prescription maps based on soil sample data. Using the tool, farmers and their agronomists can easily access and share this information from any location using the Web. Using the application, advisors can upload soil sample laboratory results in the common csv format or the new XML format now supported by major soil laboratories. The tool further enables advisors to create variable rate application (VRA) prescriptions by selecting an interpolation method for the soil data and a VRA formula. VRA prescriptions ensure the plant receives the right amount of nutrients in order to maximize yield, and they are easily shared between the farmer and advisor and can be downloaded in common shapefile format to be used by the application equipment of their choice.
