App streamlines capability

Written by  Mark Daniel

John Deere has released new software updates to its Operations Centre and MyOperations App.

This will enable users to conveniently take information from their Operations Centre account into the paddock, help manage equipment information, production data and farm operations from a mobile device.

The update also allows users to collect and edit a variety of field information from the convenience of their phone or tablet more easily. The aim is to give users more timely collection of field records and a comprehensive picture of what has occurred throughout the season. 

These include better data editing for crop types, crop season (year), post calibrated yields and areas harvested. Farmers will also be able to manually add tillage, planting, application and yield information from their mobile device. 

The update allows capture of complete field records, regardless of a machine’s data collection capability. 

A further feature sees the removal of the sign in requirement to view a machine display from the MyOperations app.
