Advanced Accounting (Initial Release)

  • Enter Prepay Expenses – [Requires Basic Accounting] Create your prepay accounts (fertilizer, seed, chemicals, etc.) and have them linked to a specific vendor.

Basic Agronomy

  • Zone Sampling and Recommendations – Traction Agronomy can now support zones through its entire sampling system. You can upload zones for use in mobile sample collection, upload directly as a sample event, associate lab results, and create a zone-based fertilizer recommendation and prescription.

Field App v1.4

  • Zone Management – Traction Field can display the zones uploaded to the system. Zones are synced automatically down from the web and displayed under their field. In addition, you can view the color code map and all the corresponding attributes.

  • Use Zones for Sampling – Traction Field now supports zone-based sample collection. From the field, you can select a zone to sample by. Traction Field then uses an easy-to-follow color system to help direct the sample collection. Once finished sampling, the new zone-based sample event is automatically synced to the web. Learn more
