Happy Harvest!

There's nothing quite like fall in the Red River Valley. Even though 2020 has had its share of downs, one of the ups is watching the fall colors emerge.

Whether you're in harvest mode or looking ahead to next year, we hope you'll take a moment to learn about some of the new features we've added to FarmQA in this newsletter. We've taken your feedback to heart and are excited to share them with you. We've also enjoyed learning how our customers are using FarmQA to improve scouting and communications with growers and we thought you'd like hearing their stories, too.

Until next quarter - Happy Harvest and Stay Safe! Ben & the FarmQA team

New Product Features Available NOW!

FarmQA Advice Now Available

Advice is a powerful new feature to add to your digital toolbelt. Formerly known as "Recommendations," this feature (included in FarmQA Scouting) allows you to write crop treatment and fertility recommendations. This functionality will be generally available in October.

Advice includes the ability to build a product database of insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc. With products added, common tank mixes can be created and nicknamed for easy use in season. To complete the process, chemical recommendations can be written within the app by multi-selecting fields and choosing a mix or individual products.

When selecting products, you can search by active ingredients or by targets like “Blight” or “Kochia.” The final recommendation includes resistance group numbers and is viewable in Controller or easily sent off to growers as a PDF (see image below). Automatic product totals are included in the report and are based on field acreage.

Updated Maps and Tools

Our maps and draw tools have been updated for a higher quality experience. We have done this by switching our map provider which gives us more flexibility with drawing tools when creating new fields, and cleaner background map layers. Enjoy the clarity!

GDDs are Plant Data Specific

Through our integration with WDT we have automatic Growing Degree Day (GDD) calculations per field. This is now done for any field in FarmQA that has a plant date and a current growing season. The GDD output can be seen in the field details pane or on a scouting report.

Weather Added to Scouting Reports

Weather data is automatically captured as a snap-shot in time on scouting reports. This is done by using the report start time; the data is then displayed on the PDF report header.
