Q. What is an Electronic Field Record (EFR)?
An Electronic Field Record (EFR) is a complete, unbiased digital record of your data organized and standardized by field and activity (as-sprayed, as-planted and as-harvested).
Farmobile is a leader in collecting LIVE point-by-point agronomic and machine data from a mixed fleet and organizing it into viewable, shareable EFRs.
Q. How do EFRs benefit me?
EFRs allow you to view, download and share the machine and agronomic data you generated from field work within 24 hours. Farmers and precision ag advisors can import agronomic and machine data into software to make better recommendations, measure results and improve performance across machines and fields.
Q. In what data format can EFRs be converted?
Your EFR data can be exported into .csv, .shp, or .GeoJSON for use (importing) with your agronomic software or system. Export your EFRs as aggregate or point-by-point data files at the field, farm or grower levels.
Q. What are features of an EFR?
Field-centric record(s) automatically generated by activity layer from the point-by-point, second-by-second data collected LIVE by Farmobile PUCTM.
Full-season results for as-planted, as-applied and as-harvested details by activities and field.
As-planted: Crop type, seed variety, average population, date/field and number of PUCs in field
As-applied: Average rate, average pressure, droplet size, product used, date/field and number of PUCs in field
As-harvested: Crop type, total production, average wet yield, average dry yield, average rate, average moisture, date/field and number of PUCs in field
Secure access within 24 hours of field activity / available via the Farmobile DataEngineSM web-based user interface or Farmobile app.
Data control + on-demand sharing with precision ag advisors via Farmobile’s permissioning system.
Interactive heatmaps to view and analyze agronomic activity in the field.
Multiple attributes: View data from all sides to see and tell the entire story.
Side-by-side comparisons: Compare key attributes from the same EFR, or two EFRs from the same crop cycle.
Q. What are the benefits of using EFRs?
Get revenue opportunities (certify to monetize) via the Farmobile DataStoreSM. EFRs can be certified in the Farmobile DataEngine platform.
Access data any time, any place to verify actual plant, spray or harvest field activity on the spot.
Check field performance with trusted advisors.
Use full-season EFRs to guide next year’s input and machine purchases.
Look back at past EFRs to manage future decisions.
Simplify data management with immediately available EFRs (no more waiting for thumb drives).
Q. Why is organizing and standardizing data so important?
The problem with the agronomic and machine data being collected by precision ag machines is: they all speak a different language. To actually put data to work in software, it must be standardized. Farmobile removes the workload and time by automatically organizing PUC-collected data so it can be viewed and downloaded within 24 hours from the Farmobile DataEngine platform.
