Field Information Bulk Upload

Field Information Bulk Upload

An Excel based bulk upload for planting information is now available. To enable bulk uploading of seasonal planting data such as planting dates, planting population, hybrids / varieties and more, users can now use the Field export and Excel upload feature.

This is done by using the field export option (click here to see an article with more details) and the Excel spreadsheet that is attached to this article and available for download. 


Please follow these steps:

  1. Obtain the Excel template "Field Information Bulk Upload": download it at the bottom of this article

  2. Download the "Fields List.csv" from your account in the WebApp:

    1. Click the three dots on the top right hand side 

    2. Click download fields list - a .csv file will show up in your computers "Downloads" folder which can be opened in excel

Take the copied information from your "Fields List" and paste it OVER the"Template" with the corresponding columns. You should see your information from the Fields List you downloaded as well as the remaining empty columns available to fill in with the planting information in the next step. 


  1. Fill in the remaining data in the Excel spreadsheet for the blank columns of:

    1. CROP [MANDATORY TO GENERATE MISSIONS] 

    2. Variety/Hybrid [optional] - this further tailors the IFS2.0 model on mission timing 

    3. Soil Type [optional]

    4. Soil Texture [optional]

    5. Planting population [optional] - this helps with the as planted and as counted comparison on the Stand Count Insight. We have the capability to upload "As-planted" shape files into the system after initial planting for further analysis. 

    6. Row Spacing [optional] 

There visual for the soil data in the web app is currently under production. If you choose to upload this form of data with the bulk upload excel file, the data will be stored in the back end until the visual tool is fully developed and ready to use. We apologize for the inconvenience. 
DO NOT ENTER PLANTING DATE UNTIL THE FIELD IS ACTUALLY PLANTED!
Once a planting date is entered, this will kick start the IFS2.0 model to generate missions for these boundaries. It is imperative to NOT ENTER the planting date UNTIL IT IS PLANTED (or within 72 hours AFTER planting). 


  1. Save your new Excel file with all your updated planting information to a known place on your computer.

  2. Upload the Excel file to the WebApp: go to "Field Data > Import Files > Import > Import from your computer":

  3. Select Bulk Upload XLSX and click Next:


  4. Browse and select the file saved on your computer and click Upload.

 

You can see your uploaded file in the Imported Field Data list with the status. The status will show "Pending" at first, but will change to "Available". This process could take up to 15 minutes to fully update in the system. If the status is "Error", please reach out to your Customer Success Representative.
