What's New with AgSquared?
AgSquared is is a farm-management software program for diversified market farms. It helps growers like you seamlessly track the thousands of details you may currently be keeping in notebooks, on spreadsheets, and in your head. Launched in beta form in 2012, AgSquared has since been refined and enriched to make it even more useful for keeping you in control of your farming business. Some of the great new features include:
One of the most important updates this year is called smart scheduling, in which the calendar can reschedule related tasks whenever something happens to throw the schedule off. Let's say you schedule your broccoli planting for April 1, with weeding timed every 10 days until your projected harvest date. In AgSquared, you can enter all those dates on your calendar to remind yourself when it's time to weed. But then April 1st arrives, and you can't get into the field because it's raining too hard. You end up planting your broccoli 5 days later. With the new smart scheduling feature, all you have to do is open the calendar and drag that task from your original planting date to your actual planting date. The software will update all the subsequent tasks automatically.
This year's update also provides for expanded record keeping, to help you recall exactly what you did and thought about the crop when you look back at it in the future. You can now add photos, text notes, audio recordings, spreadsheets, or any other kind of file so you can capture whatever information is important to you. And these features are integrated right into the calendar, so you can keep records every day while you're at work.
