The office is wherever you are

With precision farming comes a wealth of data capture and it all has to be managed, stored and made accessible to those needing to evaluate and use information.

With the onset of data networks and increased connectivity linked to the widespread use of smartphones, cloud computing has arrived.  Rather than store data on the farm computer that can only be accessed when in the office, it can now accessed from anywhere, as long as you can get a connection.

Axis is a new cloud-based technical information exchange system that allows agronomy and precision farming data to be uploaded and shared in real time with advisers, agronomists, operators and contractors, giving businesses true flexibility and efficiency.

With Axis, users of the Plantsystems services have instant access to crop management information to help make informed, timely decisions that facilitate efficient, cost-effective farming practices from any device connected to the internet, anywhere.

As part of the system, Agrovista has worked closing with Muddy Boots software to integrate the Greenlight Grower Management (GLGM) system to ensure a seamless flow of information between the key people involved in a modern agricultural business.  Growers are able to add cropping into GLGM which will immediately synchronise with the agronomist to improve efficient management and cut down on double entry of data.

Cropping plans and field cropping can change very quickly; this system allows changes to be passed between users at the click of a button.  Axis will also provide growers with valuable data such as technical and trials information, detailed weather reports and account updates.  The Greenlight Grower Management integrates seamlessly into Axis to provide an electronic library of new and past recommendations plus cropping information, nutrition and agronomy reports.

A mapping option provides a visual, intuitive way of using integrated field mapping data.  Upload combine yield maps, overlay your DGPS soil map, upload your crop information from mobile sensors and, for example, create variable rate application plans for seeds or fertilisers.  All can be seen as layers on a field map, to visualise performance.  The Axis mapping package is a powerful tool for growers using precision farming at any level and will continually be developed.
