A good farm management software platform can incorporate real time data and historical data records, which may include rainfall, temperature, soil mapping, yields and even fluctuations of market price. The system can then alert farmers of any impending risks and act as a knowledgeable information source that can increase yields and returns.
With so many options available on the market, it is easy to get overwhelmed when trying to choose the right system. One of the best ways to reduce the confusion is to clearly identify the area of the business in which the software can be implemented.
Here are some areas that agricultural software can cover:
· Record keeping, financial management.
· Field monitoring
· Fertilizer and water saturation
· Crop rotation
· Weather tracking
· Seeding and harvesting time
· Yield tracking and prediction
· Pest control
· Resource optimization
· Livestock management
· Market Tracking and sales
