Farm Credit Canada (FCC) has launched Field Manager PRO 360 (FM PRO 360), the newest software in the current line of field management software. FM PRO 360’s Geographic Information System (GIS) capability enables producers to take a closer and more comprehensive look at their operations using satellite imagery.
Developed in partnership with Logiag, an agri-environmental specialist company, FM PRO 360 includes the valuable field and crop record management tools that are already available as part of Field Manager PRO. The GIS capability shows aerial images of fields so producers can map and compare their yields.
“Our new Field Manager PRO 360 software is another example of FCC’s commitment to helping producers succeed through innovative technology,” says Glen Kroeker, Director, FCC Management Software. “The GIS feature will help producers see their operation in a new light, and save them time and effort while assessing their fields.”
Adding GIS capability gives producers the complete picture they need of their operation through geo-referenced data. This data can then be used to map yields, apply variable rates for fertilizer, and display soil test results.
“What’s great about FM PRO 360 is that producers see high resolution satellite images of their operation,” says Kroeker. “They can look at their entire field with layers of data and specific details, which really helps when they’re evaluating current yield, or planning for next year.”
Another feature is that it can import GIS, variable rate and other data directly from various equipment manufacturers. These features will allow all information to be readily available in a single system.
