Enhancement Summary

The items below represent major feature enhancements.

AutoSync

  • AutoSync™ sync speed is several times faster than in prior versions.
  • When turning AutoSync on, users receive a confirmation that all required actions to enable AutoSync have been met. The user is then notified of the estimated time to sync and are asked if they want to continue. If they select yes the screen is locked until the sync is completed.
  • Duplicate data detection and resolution for fields, guidance, landmarks, and materials has been enhanced, which results in improved automated data management at the organizational level.

Prescriptions

  • Users can wirelessly send prescriptions to connected displays with Farmer Core. These prescriptions can be created from management zones in Farmer Core, imported via Shapefile, or transferred via API.
  • Prescription materials supported now include seed, fertilizer, lime, chemicals, and tank mixes.

Data Transfer

  • Users can now download Precision-IQ as-applied task logs from Farmer Core in the industry standard shapefile format (embedded in the AgGPS directory structure).
