If you are an Agronomist, after logging in to your Agworld account, you'll need to select the farming client you'd like to work on first. If the client is not in your list of clients yet, use the Add a New Client button on the left side of the Maps page. (For more information on how to do this, search the Help Center for the "How do I create a farming client?" article.) Otherwise, once you have selected your farming client, proceed to the Background Information section below.
If you are a Farmer, login to your Agworld account, and then proceed to the Background Information section below.
Sometimes it is helpful to have a little bit of background before you dive into something new.
The first thing you'll need to do to begin drawing fields is to create a Farm for these fields to belong to. A Farm in Agworld is simply a grouping a fields.
For example, let's say you have some fields next to your residence (Fields A, B, and C) that you farm, and you also have a group of fields (Fields D, E, and F) that are 5 miles (about 8km) East of your residence. In Agworld, you could create a farm called "Home" and draw Fields A, B, & C under that farm. Then you could create another farm called "East" and draw Fields D, E, and F under that farm.
How to Draw Your Fields
Watch through the video below for the specifics on how to get started on drawing out your fields quickly!
Note: There is a brief introduction on this video. If you want to skip that and get to the "how to", skip to 53 seconds in
You can map out your fields on the Agworld iPad app too! Search the Help Center for "How do I map my farms and fields on the Agworld app?"
Do you have boundary files (KML or SHP files) from another GIS software? Depending upon the file type, you can upload those boundaries so that you don't have to re-map your boundaries again. See our help article "How to import KML/Shapefile Field Boundaries". If you are unsuccessful, email Agworld Support with your files for us to take a look at them and see if they will work.
