New Field Research Software for Agriculture Research

HarvestMaster is pleased to announce two exciting releases for the Field Research Software (FRS) suite. FRS provides a comprehensive solution for mobile field data collection on experimental trials. FRS Harvest is an essential component of the HarvestMaster Plot Harvest Data Systems for on-combine grain and moisture measurement. Using FRS, agriculture researchers improve data collection speed, efficiency, and reliability.


FRS NoteTaking and Harvest – new version 2.1 released

The new release of FRS NoteTaking and Harvest is now available to users. FRS can be used to collect electronic field notes for field plot observations, flowering and maturity notes, and on-combine measurements from the HarvestMaster Plot Harvest Data Systems. FRS is a Windows Mobile application for the Allegro Field PC.

“We are pleased to release a new version of FRS. This new release incorporates many recommendations from agriculture researchers. It is faster, easier to use, and more reliable than earlier versions,” said Keith Hunt, Agriculture Product Manager. “Release 2.1 of FRS has undergone unprecedented validation and testing making it rock solid and field ready for our customers.”


FRS Laptop – new for 2010

FRS for Laptop is a brand new offering in the FRS suite for 2010. It brings the FRS Note Taking and Harvest functionality to a full screen PC based computer running Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows Vista. For the first time, agriculture researchers can use a laptop or other PC device mounted in the combine with the industry leading HarvestMaster HM800 Plot Harvest Data System.

In addition to all the features found in FRS NoteTaking and Harvest, FRS for Laptop features a full screen display showing both spatial and tabular data views during the data collection process.
