Boundary Mode

View, record and revise field outline and sub-boundaries within the field to accurately document field areas. Utilize SMS Mobile’s operational tools to precisely account for GPS offsets, enhanced logging intervals, field marks, measurement and division needs.

Soil Sampling Mode

Create and navigate to specific soil sample sites. Navigate to sample sites using bird’s eye view, enhanced navigation view or a hybrid of both (SMS Mobile PC only). Add and move soil sample sites based on desired location. Drawing tools are available to make and divide sampling zones for specific area needs. Utilize SMS Mobile’s ability to display multiple layers to define and navigate to precise in-field areas. Auto-fill soil sample ID to accommodate customized sample id naming.

Crop Scouting Mode

Scout specific field locations or navigate to previously scouted locations to log detailed information on field/crop conditions as well as insects, diseases or weeds observed. Utilize existing attributes to document detailed pest observations or create customized attributes to fit your operation’s needs. Link images taken to scouted sites while in the field. Underlay layers from other operations for visual reference while scouting, including planting, soil survey, imagery, application and others.

Coverage Mode

Continuously log and record data for swath-based coverage operations. This allows for the logging of different hybrids/varieties, tillage operations or application rates within the field. The Virtual Implement Switch feature allows users to collect a more accurate area for operations by automatically adjusting swath width and turning the acre count on/off when entering already covered areas.

General Logging Mode

Create and edit point, line and polygon areas in the field for field scouting, tile line mapping or creation of management zones and others.

Image Download
