Feature Update: We’ve revamped our Crop Marketing and Inventory features

image

We have worked hard to bring you features that will work with you as the growing season changes to harvest season.  With harvest season quickly approaching it is important to us to provide you with the best tools to help make this the most efficient harvest season yet.  With that in mind we want to introduce to you the newest features of the markets and inventory pages.

On the marketing side, you can now view all buyers in your area so you can find the best price for your crops.  You can also keep track of all commodities you sell.

We changed the look to our inventory page, allowing you to view the amount of grain in each of your bins and the ability to view all recent transactions. We are continuing to work on inventory and marketing so provide us with your feedback.

Happy harvest season!

Field Rainfall Monitoring is now free on all plans

Last week we introduced a new free plan and now we would like to share with you that we have added field rainfall monitoring to all of our plans, free or paid.

With our free Field Rainfall Monitoring feature, there is no more driving around field to field to check gauges to see how much rain each field has gotten or if it’s too wet to work. You can just pull up your FarmLogs account and see exactly how much rain each of your fields has gotten over the last 12 hours, 24 hours, or for the entire year.

We also let you benchmark how each field is trending for the season vs the 5 year average on that specific field.

Sign up today for free to monitor all of your farms fields rainfall here:

Feature Update: Mobile App Rain Alerts

Get rainfall alerts on your mobile phone!  We have updated the iPhone and Android applications to notify you exactly when you rain is coming.  We are able to alert you down to the minute when the rain will hit and the intensity.

When you are out working in the fields and the rain clouds come rolling in you can know exactly how much time you have to plant that last row before the rain comes.  No more checking the radar every 10 seconds to see what direction a storm is moving and how fast and then guessing how much time you might have to finish up before it hits right where you are!

Check it out on our mobile apps and let us know what you think:

Feature Update: Field Rainfall History

We have added the ability for you to view each of your field’s rainfall history individually. You can now view up to eight years of rainfall data on each of your fields. You can look up any date in the past eight years and see how much rain each field received along with the five-year average.

With this data you can look back, compare and reflect on past growing seasons, and view rainfall trends on each of your fields.  The other advantage of sharing rainfall history is no more keeping track of your old records and rainfall amounts, it is now in one place.

Check it out and let us know what you think!

Feature Update: Free Field Rainfall Monitoring

Tired of driving out to your fields to find they are too wet to work on? Skip the hassle of checking your rain gauges and check out our newest feature: field rainfall monitoring!

With field rainfall monitoring you can find out how much rain each individual field received with out checking.  We pull in data every hour from the US National Weather Service, they use multiple radar and ground stations to algorithmically calculate the amount of precipitation falling on a high-resolution grid across the entire United States.  Once they know how much rain is falling they factor in variables, for example, wind and terrain.  We read in this information every hour and then match the data up with your field boundaries. 

With rainfall monitoring you can get a more accurate idea of the current growing conditions, predict yields, and much more!

Feature Update: Farm Mapping and Field Boundaries Editing

We have made it even easier for you to map your farm and add fields! We now automatically pull in a majority of the U.S. field boundaries.  When you go to add your fields all you have to do is click one of your fields and create a name, simple as that! Once you add a field we automatically pull in eight years worth of field specific rainfall and crop history.  The convenience of this is easy field creation and automatic acreage calculation, saving you time and frustration!

Don’t see your fields boundaries? Use the “redraw boundaries” tool.  Go in and retrace field boundaries with the simple trace of your mouse.  The advatage of this is that you can create custom fields specific to your exact boundaries. 

Field creation is currently only supported on the web version of FarmLogs.
