New Features Available in SMS v23.0

Feb 22, 2023Ag Leader, SMS™ Software

Highlights of SMS Version 23:

Adjust prescription rates by cost

Gain more control over input costs with this new prescription budget tool! Now you can easily adjust a prescription based on a set budget either for the entire field or per area.

Provide the cost of the product and SMS will scale or reduce the prescription values to meet your desired budget.


The left prescription is showing the original cost compared with the right prescription after using the prescription adjustment tool based on a desired cost. In this case, the rate has been lowered in red areas to zero that don’t need as much ensuring areas in green receive the full application rate where it is needed most while staying within the designated budget.

Verify application performance with new Rate Quality map 

Easily verify how well the product was applied with the new Rate Quality map. Have confidence in knowing where the application rate correctly matched the target rate, and evaluate areas that were over or under applied to determine if any additional steps need to be taken. 



Trace boundary enhancements

The Trace Boundary tool has been enhanced to allow you to control the sensitivity of tracing small details in the field. As shown above, a sensitivity adjustment may be helpful for areas tracing a narrow waterway.
