Trimble Adds New Features to Ag Software Platform
Since launching its Ag Software solution two years ago, Trimble has closely monitored customer feedback. Its goal: to continually enhance the desktop, cloud-based, and mobile-enabled agricultural solution to add more value. The result is two new features – Crop Health Imagery and Work Orders – that leverage the Trimble Ag Mobile app for in-field crop scouting and deploying fieldwork from a smartphone.
Crop Health Imagery
Powered by PurePixel technology, Crop Health Imagery provides reliable, cloud-free, calibrated satellite images to farmers and their trusted advisers. PurePixel leverages a proprietary algorithm to analyze multiple sensor inputs to produce calibrated vegetative index maps throughout the growing season. By having the ability to compare crop health at each stage of the growing season for more targeted crop scouting, farmers are better equipped to make smart in-season application decisions to maximize yields and improve productivity.
Take the guesswork out of assigning and tracking fieldwork with the Work Orders feature. This easy-to-use tool enables farm managers to manage logistics, assign tasks, track progress, and make quick adjustments to maximize efficiency and productivity. Farmworkers also benefit from Work Orders because they can use their smartphone to receive daily tasks, which will equate to better use of time and the potential to reduce application mistakes.
“Farmers are looking to adopt technologies that impact their bottom line, so we’ve rolled out two new features that bring value to any size of operation,” says Darren Howie, general manager of Trimble’s Agriculture Business Solutions. “Whether it’s using Crop Health Imagery to assist with scouting, or leveraging Work Orders to plan out daily activities, Trimble Ag Software helps our customers make better management decisions, saving both time and money.”
These two new features are available at no additional cost to current users of Trimble Ag Software’s Farmer Pro and Farmer Pro Plus as well as new subscribers.
