Focus on data collection with latest Operations Center Updates

John Deere has released new software updates to the John Deere Operations Center and its MyOperations App with an emphasis on improving data collection and accuracy. Operation Center acts as a central tool for many Australian farmers and operators to unlock the power of Precision Agriculture whilst the MyOperations App enables growers to access their Operation Center account in field to help manage equipment information, production data and farm operations via a mobile device. The key updates include the expansion of data editing capabilities from MyOperations; improvements to data accuracy and quality by enabling growers to edit field information from their mobile device and sync it across the John Deere digital ecosystem. New data editing capabilities include crop type, crop season, post-calibrate yield and area harvested; adding field records from MyOperations; manually add tillage, application and yield information from a mobile device. These updates allow users to capture more complete field records, regardless of the machine’s data collection capability. The sign in requirement to view a machine display from MyOperations has also been removed to streamline the process. John Deere Precision Ag manager Ben Kelly said the latest updates further expand the capabilities of both the Operations Center and MyOperations App. “By simplifying the way farmers can input and edit key data from their mobile or tablet, we’re helping them to compile high-quality information and insights about each field,” Kelly said. “This is particularly important given the results which can be gained through the implementation of Precision Ag are directly linked to the quality of the data which is fed into the system. “This update also demonstrates how John Deere is prioritising making technology simple to use so the powerful benefits it brings to agriculture are available to as many growers as possible.” Farmers looking to login or create an Operations Center account can do so at https://myjohndeere.
