Trimble recently introduced its My Connected Farm portal, a new Web-based solution for growers and agribusinesses to access and manage mapping applications, precision farming data and vehicle performance and movement. My Connected Farm is password-protected and users can customize information specific to their farming operations.
My Connected Farm allows users to sign on and upload field and office data to access, manage, view, and print information and maps collected by precision agriculture hardware such as the Trimble FmX integrated display from any computer connected to the Internet.
The new portal will also be compatible with Office Sync service. Office Sync provides wireless transfer of data between the field and office making it possible to instantly view collected data from Web browsers for timely management decisions.
Highlights of My Connected Farm portal include:
- Display Bing Maps for background imagery overlaid with current or historical data.
- Build a list of client/farm/field/input names which can be synchronized with a Trimble CFX-750 display or the FmX integrated display.
- View data such as yield, coverage, and other maps with legend.
- Print a map or task report summarizing activities.
- Manage guidance lines from the CFX-750 display or FmX integrated display.
My Connected Farm will also serve as the gateway for Vehicle Manager, Trimble’s telematics solution. Vehicle Manager provides up-to-date fleet management information, a virtual dashboard of cab monitors, fuel usage, engine reporting, and performance analysis. Managers can also create geo-fences to guard against theft or provide alerts when vehicle operators enter non-farming zones.
“We are excited to introduce an innovative Web-based agricultural mapping solution for growers and agribusinesses who want to manage precision ag data online,” said Erik Arvesen, vice president for Trimble’s Agriculture Division. “Our solution opens the door for use on many platforms and will provide growers with the convenience of being able to access their data on the Web at any time.”
My Connected Farm is expected to be available in March 2012.
