Trimble’s Farmer Starter is a free easy-to-use online and mobile platform for farmers who want to organize and access their farm data from any device connected to the Internet. This farm management software tool provides the perfect starting point and can be seamlessly upgraded to Farmer Pro for additional functionality. Get started today — sign up for your free Farmer Starter account now.
Create your farms and fields with boundaries and then view them along with other mapping data, including aerial imagery and street maps. Boundaries can be imported via shapefile, hand drawn or downloaded via the mobile app to help visualize the entire farming operation.
Access weather information on your dashboard for tracking current temperature, wind speed, wind direction, humidity and chance of precipitation. Doppler radar maps can be used to overlay on field boundaries to help anticipate future weather events. Also, view real-time future prices and local cash bids to simplify your grain marketing strategy.
Need a starting point for your field record keeping? Assign a crop and seeding dates to a field to track your seeded acreage for your farm.
When it comes time for harvest, use the mobile app to enter the average yield for each field and have that historical information at your fingertips. Additional functionality and reports are available when you upgrade to Farmer Pro.
Farmers today understand the impact extreme heat and cold temperatures can have on yield and profitability. With Farmer Starter, you can access temperature, precipitation and growing-degree-day trends based on a pre-set location. This gives you a sample of Ag Premium Weather as the paid version allows you to see this information for each field, along with contoured maps and email alerts.
