Plan and Budget

The Agworld Planning Tool

The Agworld planning tool is split into 3 steps:

1. Create Activity Templates

2. Create Crop Templates and add Activity Templates

3. Add Crop Templates to fields - this can be done from the website or from the Agworld iPad app

How to create activity templates

The first step of planning is to create activity templates. These templates are the activities that you're planning to carry out in order to grow the crop. For example you could create a 'Knockdown' activity template, or a 'Pre emergent spray' activity template. It is best to keep these templates fairly generic so you can use them across different crops and fields.

How to apply crop templates

Once you have created crop templates, the final step in planning is to apply these crop templates to your field. This can be done from the Farm Planning page on the Agworld website. Hover over the Planning tab and select Farm Planning.

If a season has not yet been created for the company, then you will be prompted to create one. The season name will appear on the top left hand corner of the page. If you need to create a new season, select the green plus button to do so.

From the panel on the right hand side of the screen, select Templates. From there, you can select to view Crop Templates, Activity Templates or Field Plans ('field plans' are templates that were applied to fields in previous seasons. This is where you can copy a plan from last season and apply it to a field in the current or a future season- a great time saver!).

To assign a crop template, hover over the template from the list and select Apply.

The fields on the left panel will be shaded yellow, allowing you to apply the selected template to the fields.

Simply click on a field from the list to apply the template.

To apply to multiple fields, hold down the Alt key on your keyboard while selecting the fields from the list.

Once you are finished, you can either select Finished at the top of the page, or select Esc on your keyboard.

To view the plan that you have added to fields and make any changes to this plan, simply select a field that you would like to view from the left hand panel. This will load its field plan for the current season (or which season you have filtered to).

You can view all of the planned information against that field. To edit any section of the plan, simply select the Edit options of each box (field configuration, crop forecast and activities). Any changes you make will only save against this field and not affect any of your other plans.

You can copy this plan and assign it to other fields. To do this, select the Copy Field Plan option and apply to a field from the left hand panel.

How to add a paddock plan from the iPad app

Once you have created crop templates, you can add these to fields directly from your iPad app. This means that you can add a plan to a field all while offline! When you next sync, this plan will be transferred to the website and available on the rest of the Agworld system.

How to create a season

Seasons can be created in the Farm Planning page on the Agworld website. Hover over the Planning tab and select Farm Planning. From there, select the green plus button at the top of the page to create a new season. Enter in the name and the start and end dates for the season, then select Save.
