Cloud-based agronomy tool now live

Article taken from the Agronomist & Arable Farmer Summer 2015

Axis, Agrovista’s new cloud-based data management system, will put an end to growers disparate farm data sources.

With the growing adoption of decision support and precision farming systems, the information being generated by farmers is growing exponentially.  The new Axis system is a leap ahead for collating multiple data sources onto one easy-access platform.  The Axis system is cloud based so that farmers can access and add to their information via multiple platforms, including smartphones, satellite-mapping equipment and office PCs.

Axis integrates Greenlight Grower Management from Muddy Boots and incorporates its online crop management system, field recording and data sharing functions.

To take this one stage further the whole system is linked to a web-based mapping module called MapIT Pro which at a basic level can display field boundaries and cropping.  MapIT Pro will also do much more than this, enabling the user to import yield maps, set up custom field zones, and generally manage all precision farming data.

Invaluable Tool

What makes Axis invaluable as a business tool is the system’s ability to exchange information between devices, people and software systems.  Over the coming years Axis will continue to develop to allow farmers and advisers to integrate all their devices, systems and advisory information into one platform.

Axis will also target the paperwork and record-keeping associated with compliance, integrating crop recording and key dates and times for field tasks.  This management element is lacking in many of the simple systems farmers are using.

Axis is very practical to use and with an intuitive app-style access screen.  It hosts really practical management aids like yield and soil mapping, compliance date alerts, technical agronomic updates,  seven-day weather forecasts, spray-window forecasts and product labels.
