    Anyone using new version that can be linked to Farmflo Agronomist?

    I signed up for version two and I am not happy with it as I cannot enter details from a phone app and have to use browser . I do not think you can batch plant or spray with it either . I was talking to Carlows second best tillage farmer and he was going to version 2 but I think he will be disappointed . Also if you use Agronomist he has to fill in fields so you can use it . There were a few flaws in version one such as occasionally spraying a field twice and the inventory was hard to manage but the field reports were excellent as was the phone app .

    I’ve started using agronomist and farm at same time and I’m disappointed by its functionality and lack of app for operators to use smart phone
    It’s got a long way to go, the simple things don’t work yet

    How does it compare to Gatekeeper. What's the annual charge?

    Annual charge depends on acerage

    Its a while since I used gatekeeper

    Spent few hours updating records

    slow a laborious to be honest

    Re-input far too much of same information over and over

    I am using agronomist and farm at same time

    I am constantly feeding back info to them but changes are slow to happen

    If @Bog Man has thoughts on what hes doing?

    If I write a recommendation for a crop for 4 fields and send it to farmer

    on farmer side you have to go into each field indivually and enter the the details ie sprayer, operator, water rate etc 4 times even though you might spray it as one tank
