 Field Connect App - Navigation

  • Current environmental data can be found on the app when you click the sun and cloud icon.
  • If you have a basic unit (with only rain and soil moisture) rainfall is the only data that will show in this view.

Soil moisture data can be found by clicking the graph icon.

  • Swipe left to see the different graphs.  Soil moisture by sum, soil moisture by sensor, daily moisture change and by sensor, growing degree days and rainfall.
  • 7, 14, or 30 day views
  • Graphs are best viewed by turning your phone to landscape view.

      


  Data Frequency:

  • Field Connect weather stations log data every 20 minutes and send to the data platform every 2 hours.
  • Crop Intelligence caches data from Field Connect approximately every 1.5 hours.
  • As a result, data in Crop Intelligence may be up to 3.5 hours delayed.
