FARMserver Update: “Autopsy” Your Fields With FARMserver

FARMserver Update: “Autopsy” Your Fields With FARMserver

Yield maps are often referred to as “autopsies” of the field. They show the patterns of good and bad areas, whether those acres are naturally occurring or man-made. Changes in topography, soil drainage, weather, texture, nutrient levels, disease, and other environmental factors can help or hurt yield. Man-made patterns, while typically distinguished by their straight lines, can be the result of tillage practices, hybrid or variety changes, fertilizer or herbicide test strips, fungicide trials, or any other practice in the field which affects yield.

While it’s true that any analytics at this point would not help the freshly harvested crop, learning […]

FARMserver Update: The Importance of Yield Data

FARMserver Update: The Importance of Yield Data

Yield data. It’s the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when “precision ag” is mentioned. Yes, yield data is critical to precision agriculture. It’s the culmination of all your efforts throughout the year. The report card. The “good, the bad, and the ugly.” The map we use to analyze what we did and how it performed. But before we can really dig deep into the analytics, we must first put it into a usable format. 

Enter FARMserver.

We like to say that FARMserver is “colorblind” when it comes to data, meaning we can upload data from just about any monitor or format […]

FARMserver Update: High Priority Situational Alerts

FARMserver Update: High Priority Situational Alerts

Located between our agronomy and weather alerts under notifications, we have introduced another new tool in FARMserver to keep you informed during the growing season, the high-priority situational alerts.

What is a high-priority situational alert? It is an alert delivered with high importance that provides timely information on specific agronomic conditions that could impact yield potential. Examples of these timely alerts are listed below:

What is a Situational Alert?

The following situations are a few examples of when you can expect to receive a Situational Alert, along with helpful agronomic recommendations:

Corn/Soybean Frost – Air temperatures reach 28 degrees or lower sustained for 3+ hoursCorn Crown […]

FARMserver Update: Weather Alerts are Here!

FARMserver Update: Weather Alerts are Here!

The wait is over to figure out what fields had how much wind, hail, and most importantly RAIN! But not just how much it rained: how much in the last 24 hours, since planting, and how much this year. FARMserver uses scoured radar generated rainfall amounts to accumulate the 24 hour, and date range totals, BUT if you have a Davis Instruments weather station, you can integrate with FARMserver and we will prioritize that data for any field within 0.5 mi radius of that station.

Having the ability to track when and where storms hit that bring […]

FARMserver Update: Don’t Forget to Scout!

FARMserver Update: Don’t Forget to Scout!

Across the Midwest, acres and acres of fields are planted in hopes of producing the best crop possible. Several factors influence these growing conditions, including product performance, input prices, management practices, soil types, and of course, weather. While we as farmers certainly cannot control all of those things, we can monitor our crops and do our best to make the best decisions with the resources we have. FARMserver’s scouting app is here to help with that.If you haven’t tried the scouting feature yet, let me share some of the functionality with you. For starters, you can access it from our website […]

Crop Growth Model in FARMserver

Crop Growth Model in FARMserver

With the month of May dwindling down, planters, field cultivators and anhydrous toolbars are cruising throughout the Midwest in a race to get this year’s crop planted. These can be hard times as the “marathon” of spring planting can wear down even the most experienced of us. Certain areas of the region have been blessed with favorable planting conditions, while others are still battling muddy fields and last-minute nitrogen applications. However, we cannot lose focus on what is left to be loaded into the planter, or the progress of the crops that are already emerging from the ground. FARMserver has […]

FARMserver Update: Integrations in FARMserver and Tractor Monitor Resources

FARMserver Update: Integrations in FARMserver and Tractor Monitor Resources

Do you ever wish your fields could talk to you? Well, with FARMserver’s Crop Growth Model that stages your crops and sends you in-season alerts, now they can! Take advantage of the “Integrations” in FARMserver to ensure that your planting data flows in and triggers your account to send in-season alerts relative to each growth stage. Making sure the “Integration” with your MyJohnDeere, FieldView, AgFiniti, AFS Connect, AGCO, or Slingshot account is set up before planting is imperative to ensure your data from 2022 imports into FARMserver without you ever having to touch a button.

If you don’t have an integration […]

FARMserver Updates: New Notification Options

FARMserver Updates: New Notification Options

Springtime is here, and planters are going to be rolling soon! While we know you’re busy with equipment preparations, we wanted to remind you about some software preparations as well.

Have you heard about our new Notification options in FARMserver? 

Last summer, we rolled out the Growth Stage Model in FARMserver, and it was met with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Using the daily weather data that FARMserver automatically collects for each field, along with the planting date and relative maturity of your crop, FARMserver predicts the growth stage throughout the year. As conditions change, the Growth Stage changes too. It indicates the date […]

FARMserver Updates: Analytic Tools

FARMserver Updates: Analytic Tools

Brrr! It’s cold outside! Winter weather can be brutal, and it’s not a fun time to work outdoors in these low temperatures. But it is an excellent time to sit down and analyze your data from the previous year!

By now, your PFR book should have arrived, and hopefully, you have earmarked some of the studies you want to learn more about or perhaps even try on your farm. By using the analytic tools with your data in FARMserver, you can better define and refine your implementation decisions for 2022.

Our newly updated Query Tool is the easiest place to start when […]

FARMserver Updates: Post-Harvest Reporting

FARMserver Updates: Post-Harvest Reporting

As harvest comes to an end, having the ability to explore how certain fields, products, and practices performed are all great reasons for entering your data into FARMserver. Uploading your data is as easy as pulling it from your monitor, zipping the file, and uploading it to www.farmserver.com. If you have your account sent up to send data through a wireless integration, you will be able to jump right to the “Reports” section of FARMserver.

Depending on the data you have uploaded, an array of reports will be available. Here are a few examples:

Yield by Field Summary: Displays the average yield, average […]
