Version 2015.05 Now Available

June 9, 2015 - Farm Works Software® has released version 2015.05 of the Office software.

Enhancements include:

  • New Resource Synchronization Option with Connected Farm (Mapping)– new feature to easily synchronize resources (client/farm/field names, boundaries, materials, people, equipment, and crops) between Farm Works and Connected Farm™.  This allows you to utilize Connected Farm easier for functions such as PurePixel™ and RainWave® Contour Map.
  • Improved Planned Job Report (Mapping) – when accessing the Planned Job Report by right-clicking on a job within the client/farm/field view, the report now includes supplies.  Finding supplies using prior versions would only be available when the report was accessed from the Jobs tab.
  • Updated Ag Leader AgData Driver (Mapping) – improvements to the Ag Leader AgData driver to resolve issues when some jobs would not appear in Read Job Data as well as adding support for merging jobs with multiple sections.
  • Updated Map Labels (Mapping) – map labels no longer display when an attribute is left blank.  For example, prior versions would display the unit of measure in the label even though it was blank.
  • Support for Copying and Pasting Lines to a Guidance Line Layer (Mapping) – added support for copying and pasting lines to the guidance lines layer so these lines will utilize a guidance type (AB or Curve).
  • Updates to Levee Tolerance Setting (Surface) – errors are not shown on unsmoothed lines when using the Levee Tolerance tool.

  • New Planting Statistics by Row Report (Mapping) – a new report is available that includes statistics on singulation, skips, doubles, cv area, and seed spacing (min & max & avg & standard deviation) for each row of your planter.  This report works with planting data logged with CNH displays. The report gives summaries for each row by field with totals/averages for any date range.
  • Support for Updated Ag Leader Firmware (Mapping) – an updated Ag Leader agdata driver is available to support reading/writing data with Ag Leader display firmware version 6.3.
  • Updated Reading Tank Mixes from a FmX or TMX Display (Mapping) – materials logged with a Trimble FmX® integrated display or a TMX-2050™ display can be linked to a tank mix so that Farm Works can be used to track the amount of each ingredient in the mix that was used.

  • Updated Support for CNH ISOXML Data (Mapping) – a new data parser for reading and writing ISOXML data with CNH displays is now available.

  • Updated VRA Map Report (Mapping) – the VRA Map Report now shows minimum, maximum and average rates with the distributed unit of measure.
  • Updated Financial Measures Report (Accounting) – the Financial Measures Report (ratio report) now allows you to drill down to the details for any ratio.
  • Updated Levee Generation Functionality - Buffer (Surface) – there is now a "Buffer" option where you can enter a distance and have lines extended when they get this distance from the boundary. This can be used when the elevation includes the boundary for the field and you want to ignore this elevation data when creating levee lines.
  • Updated Levee Generation Functionality - Tolerance (Surface) – now you can enter a "Tolerance" which is the amount of deviation you're willing to accept across a levee. If any part of the levee exceeds this tolerance, an error will be shown on the map so the levee can be adjusted.
  • Right-Click Option to Create a Drainage Completed Layer (Surface) – right-click on a field and select Add and then select Drainage Completed Layer to create a new Drainage Completed Layer.
