The following comments were made by participants during the webinar....
Q: What other features would be useful for creating farm information?
|Comments from Participants||Feedback|
|I just thought of an application for your buffer example. Beginning next year fields that are fumigated will need fumigation management plans with different setbacks from houses etc. Could you make maps with these setbacks to make fumigation maps keeping tractor away for buffers?||Yes, you may create buffers or setbacks, and export to shapefile layers format for use by the application equipment|
|Ability to have maps load automatically by farm operation.||Automatic upload from yield monitors, application equipment, or field data collection is planned for future versions of GeoAgro GIS. However, you may use different options for sharing information from/to GeoAgro GIS|
|Also looking at the ability to add soil test results and yield results in a easy software too operate.||see feedback above|
| is there a way to import fsa field boundaries?
Link for CLU would be very beneficial.
|The USDA does not allow open access to Common Land Unit boundaries. However, you can use GeoAgro CPlanner to access your producer's information, if you are a TEchnical Service Provider working with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service - learn more >|
|Are all these layers are saved under same project rather than as subprojects?||See Organizing farm information|
|Pesticide application history and field signing|
