FarmQA Scouting

Flexible crop scouting for mobile devices and precision agriculture

FarmQA Scouting is your digital agronomy assistant for crop and field scouting. Scouting's flexible scouting templates allow the creation of the perfect template you need for your precision agriculture operation. Increase the effectiveness of your crop scouting for standard crops as well as specialty crops like fruits, vegetables, hops, or even grapes. There are no constraints because FarmQA Scouting is adaptable.

Scouting your fields is an excellent way of keeping track of developments such as pest and weed infestation, growth progress, and overall health of your crop. With FarmQA Scouting, you can easily track all of the things you want to track and nothing more. Additionally, your records are safe with us and we never share your data with others.

Crop specific scouting

Tired of inflexible scouting apps that force you to page through 1000's of conditions that don't apply to your crops? Design your own scouting form with our template designer. Our scouting template designer provides an easy to use interface allowing you to quickly create the scouting template you need for any crop.

An innovative live preview shows you what the scout will see as you make changes.

You can define templates for each different crop you grow and even specify different templates for specific problem fields. Whatever you want, you can do with our flexible crop specific scouting designer.

Reporting

FarmQA Scouting has a complete reporting solution for your operation. PDF report generation allows your farmers to see at a glance the situation and send that report to your growers. All of your annotations and photos are included.

Example of PDF reports both on the web and on mobile

Digital crop and field records

FarmQA Scouting takes geo-tagged photos, attaches them to the scouting report and makes them available for review in FarmQA Controller, our cloud based agronomy platform.

Need to know precisely where an issue is? Precisely annotate the extent of the issue and its exact location. Our draw on map capability allows you to annotate the where a field issue is and the extent issue. This allows you to better communicate to your growers where the issues are in the field for quick resolution.

Example of map annotations and photos

Efficient data collection

Optimized for touch and mobile, Scouting provides an innovative data collection experience so you can quickly and efficiently record crop conditions.

Offline support

Because not all of your fields are within the range of a cell tower, FarmQA Scouting caches information about your fields and your scouting templates on the mobile device. This allows you to start scouting a remote field and submit the report later when you're back online.

Distance to fields

See the distance to any of your fields at a glance with the field distance view. The distance to your fields is clearly displayed.

Automatic merging of scouting reports

Sending multiple scouts into a field is no problem. FarmQA Scouting will automatically merge scouting reports from multiple scouts in the same field into a single consolidated report.
