Improving web-based tracking of croplands


FieldTRAKS Solutions is a web-based application designed for agricultural producers, processers, suppliers, crop advisors and farmers. Users can collect, manage, and report spatial information in order to better understand the conditions of their cropland at a given time, but the company needed some software upgrades.


The team is helping FieldTRAKS develop and apply two innovative features to the software. The first is a Precipitation Accumulation plug-in that could lead the way to real-time hydrology and erosion modelling. The second is a Growing Degree Day plug-in that will select a crop of interest and determine the number of growing degree days it has endured through the current growing season, as well as the estimated number of days before crop maturity.
