Topcon Precision Agriculture (TPA) announces its newest entry in the precision ag market, SGISfarm software, an ag information management system designed specifically for ease of use by professional farm operators on their office computer.

SGISfarm is designed to be an easy-to-use information management system software that includes all of the mapping and drawing tools customers expect for displaying and working with their data.
 
This new system utilizes field data collected from soil testing, GIS mapping and yield monitors to help farmers make better crop input decisions. It features a simple, reliable process for creating variable rate crop input maps by focusing on basic but proven recommendation methods. These methods are then “pre-packaged” as templates eliminating the need for users to learn the complex process of writing equations.
 
Joe Tevis, TPA director of agronomic products and services, said, “SGISfarm was developed to allow Topcon to offer full farm solutions and complete the value proposition of its many hardware products, including all of its consoles or controllers, such as the X20, GX-45 and new X30. This specialized farm data management software specifically targets precision farming for the owner-operator.”
 
With its exclusive process, SGISfarm can “reliably create variable rate application maps for all Topcon consoles,” he said. “Used with the new Topcon X30 console, it will seamlessly manage as-applied data which can be used in printed reports and in future fertility recommendations.”
 
Tevis said SGISfarm offers “tight integration” with a number of machines from AGCO, a Topcon strategic partner. “With the high cost of seed, it is an excellent tool for use with variable rate seeding, turning data of choice into VRC seeding maps for AGCO White planters as well as those planters equipped with DICKEY-john controls.”
 
SGISfarm is “capable of creating variable rate maps for virtually all of the common controllers used for application and seeding control. It is also compatible with the harvest monitors of other brands of combines,” Tevis said.
 
“In addition to supporting these monitors, it can easily merge data when multiple combines are used in the same field. SGISfarm also adds value to Topcon CropSpec sensors by providing tools to visualize field data and modify a proposed application,” he said.
