Farm Works Mobile Software

Farm Works® Mobile software streamlines data management in the field by bundling record keeping, mapping, scouting, soil sampling, and variable rate application into one software solution. The Mobile software operates on any field computer with the Windows Mobile®, Windows® XP, Windows Vista®, or Windows 7 operating system.

Data entry for field records can work independently or in conjunction with a GPS receiver to track planting dates, chemical and fertilizer usage, scale tickets, hybrid/variety location, weather, and more. Viewing the history of past hybrids, chemical applications, tillage practices, and yield is simple and efficient. Large buttons enable easy navigation, and the interface accommodates small screen displays.

You can also use GPS for field mapping. Map field boundaries, sampling zones, rocks, pivots, broken drainage tile, no spray zones, and other points of interest. Capture scouting attributes such as weed and insect types, notes, tile diameter, and images from a digital camera.

The Farm Works Mobile software is flexible enough to handle soil sampling by grid or by management zones. Use the navigational line to automatically connect the target points in the order they are numbered. Navigate to any point of interest using the compass or a 3D view of the map.

The software will connect to single or multi-product variable rate controllers that communicate through a serial cable. All files easily download into the Farm Works office software or convert into an ArcView shapefile for flexible data exchange with other mapping software. The Farm Works Mobile software will also connect to sensors for recording yield, conductivity, light reflectance, as-applied, and other data that can be downloaded in the Farm Works office suite or other third-party desktop software.

In addition, the Farm Works Mobile software is Trimble® Connected Farm system ready. Install the Farm Works Mobile software on a Connected Farm compatible mobile computer (such as a Trimble Juno® SC or Nomad® 800 XC handheld), to wirelessly send and receive data between the office and field. This system not only saves you valuable time from handling data for more than one location, but also improves your computerized field records, maps, and job reporting.
