Agronomist & Farm Consultant

External agronomists and consultants can easily control farm operations remotely.

FarmSoft Farm Management ERP provides agronomists, farm consultants, grower associations, and farm co-operatives with the ability to remotely access farming information from individual farms. Remote access can be via a computer, tablet or iPad, or even smart-phone.  You can add new tasks such as Spray, Irrigation, Planting Harvesting, Observations, or create instructions, and view historical information; at any selected farm.  The remote access is commonly used to support the farms achieving maximum quality, yield, and traceability – whilst implementing best practices and standards for food safety.

Features for Agronomists

FarmSoft Farm Management Software provides farm consultants and agronomists with the following precision farming solutions:

 

  • View, edit, add any and all activities at a farm (spray, irrigation, harvest, planting, etc)
  • View historical data related to a specific area of land within the farm (historical harvest and yield information, soil analysis, plant analysis, organic testing etc)
  • Add tasks to the farms “scheduled tasks” list; staff at the farm (either management or teams) will then be alerted to the new task and perform the work and mark the work as “completed”. The tasks you can add include full inventory (eg: chemicals and fertilizer) and also allows you to “draw” on a map of the farm to highlight areas of interest or tractor instructions.
  • View progress of tasks you have suggested be performed at the farm
  • Make observations that can be assigned to a specific area of land, even attach documents (PDF, DOC etc), or insert pictures. You can use the farms maps to “draw” on a “copy” of their map to highlight an area of land (eg: an area where there is a pest infestation etc)
  • View many reports from the farm including yield, chemical application, history; Essentially you can access all of the features the farm can access. Note that the farm must choose which features to give you access to.
  • Remote monitor as many farms as you wish! All from the comfort of your office, home office, or hopefully your laptop on the beach.
  • View production metrics from each farm such as temperature, moisture, soil content and more
  • Create alerts that will be shown to a specific employee at the farm as soon as they access the system (will also automatically email the employee).  This is useful for providing an audit trail for Agronomic advice.
  • can use the farms maps to “draw” on a “copy” of their map to a new map
  • Remote monitor as many farms as you wish! All from the comfort of your office, home office, or hopefully your laptop on the beach.
  • View production metrics from each farm such as temperature, moisture, soil content and more

Benefits for Agronomists & Traceability Consultants

FarmSoft Farm Management ERP provides farm consultants, co-operatives, and agronomists with a massive range of benefits including:

· Remote access to each farms information gives the consultant/agronomist the ability to always keep up to date with the activities on every farm that is being monitored. The agronomist will never have to say “oh, I didn’t know you sprayed that last week”….

· Remote access greatly reduces the risk of the consultant/agronomist missing an opportunity to provide advice, and ultimately increases the farms profit, and increases the “quality of service” provided by the consultant.

· FarmSoft Farm Management ERP allows the agronomist to reduce costs and increase efficiency by rapidly monitoring many farms at once; all from the office. Ultimate results for the agronomy company are a reduction in the cost of on-site farm visits, vehicle costs, fuel, reduced time taken to monitor farms, and reduced telecommunication expenses. Long story short, the agronomy company saves money.

· One agronomist can service more farms at the same time, and communicate rapidly through the Alerts system.

· By introducing FarmSoft Farm Management ERP to your farm clients, you are giving them farm planning, monitoring, and traceability  record keeping tool. You take the credit for this!

Benefits for Agronomists & Traceability Consultants

· Allowing a consultant access to the farms information increases the value of the Agronomist or Consultants efforts for the farm.

· Improves communication between Agronomist/Consultant and Farm managers.

· The farm can chose exactly which information the agronomist can access, including permissions such as Create, View, Edit; and even turn on or off the consultants access to information at any time.

· The farm has full control over the agronomists username and password and can turn on or off access at any time
