Adding a new farm to your Farm Tree

Written by AgribleAdmin
Updated over a week ago

All farms are created during the add fields process. If you are performing a field boundary import, the names associated with the boundaries being imported will be added to your account automatically. There is currently no way to add a new "farm" to your Farm Tree without proceeding through the Map Entry add fields process. If you have added all your fields to your account, here is how you can create a new farm.

Quick Tip: Visit How to name your farms and fields if you are unfamiliar with Agrible's farm and field terminology.

Quick Tip: For ease of use, the instructions below mention going to a specific page, however the Farm Tree is visible on the left of the site while accessing all pages, with exception to Weather Story and Markets.

How to Create a New Farm

Step 1

Select to Log In to your Agrible account.

Step 2

Select Field Story at the top middle of the page.

Step 3

The Farm Tree is on the left with all of your Farms and Fields listed. Select +Add Fields at the top of the Farm Tree.

Field Story - Add Fields

Step 4

Select Map Entry option on the left.

Step 5

Locate your field on the map by entering an address, a zip code, a city and state, latitude and longitude in the search box on the upper left -OR- use the zoom controls on the upper right to find a location on the map.

Step 6

Draw your own boundaries (Option A) -OR- select from pre-loaded boundaries (Option B).

Option A: To draw a boundary, start by clicking or tapping on one corner/edge of the field. Continue clicking/tapping around the boundary of the field and return to the original point for a final click on the checkmark to close the boundary. There are no limits on the number of pins you can drop to complete a field boundary, which allows you to draw irregular shaped boundaries and center pivot irrigation boundaries. If you make a mistake while drawing, select the "x" to remove the last dropped pin.

  • Quick Tip: If the draw tool is not highlighted with green text, you are not zoomed in to the map far enough to activate the draw feature.

  • Quick Tip: When drawing boundaries, zoom in as close to the map as possible to create the most accurate boundary. Clicking and dragging the map will not drop a pin while drawing, only clicking or tapping will drop pins.

Option B: Hover over your farm to check if there is a pre-loaded boundary available, the boundary will highlight when your mouse crosses onto it. To select a pre-loaded boundary, click one time while hovering over the desired boundary.

  • Quick Tip: You cannot select multiple pre-loaded boundaries to create one large boundary. You will need to use Option A to draw the boundary.

  • Quick Tip: Add boundaries based on crop type and management practices.

Step 7

The Field Details pop-up box will appear after closing or selecting your boundary. Enter a name for your field (enter anything you would like, but something that you can identify later) and choose a Group Name. At the bottom of the pop-up, enter a new farm name under the Create Farm area, then click Save.

Quick Tip: The field you are creating is simply a placeholder so you can add a new farm to your Farm Tree. You can then choose to delete the new field, or move it to a different farm.

Step 9 (Optional)

There are three options available for the placeholder field that was created while creating your new farm. Leave and use the new field, delete it, or move it to a different farm. Deleting or moving the field can be accomplished using the Farm Tree Edit feature.
