The Import Farm Field Tree tool allows one to utilize a Farm Field Tree that has been previously drawn in another farm management software such as Apex and MyJohnDeere Operations Center. This allows the user to bypass the steps of manually creating the Farm and Field names as well as mapping the field boundaries. To determine if the shapefiles exported out a different farm management software is compatible with this tool, please call Syngenta Digital Support. Prior to attempting this process in Land.db, export all field boundaries as individual shapefiles from the farm management software.
To utilize the Import Farm Field Tree tool, select the Home level of the Farm Field Tree and navigate to the Map tab on the upper right of the screen. Click on the Settings cog and select Import Farm Field Tree.
Once Import Farm Field Tree has been selected a window will open, allowing the user to choose the files to import. Navigate to the folder containing the shapefiles. Once that folder has been opened, press Ctrl + A on the keyboard to select all shapefiles, and press Open.
After selecting Open, the field shapefiles will appear on the map in red. When the field shapes are visible, select Process Shapes in the Import Farm Field Tree tools box.
It will take a moment for the shapefiles to process. After the process completes, the Farms and Fields will be accessible in the client as shown below.
