Create very sophisticated raster images of spatially variable data, such as yield data collected from a yield monitoring system aboard a harvester. The FarmStar data imaging system is very powerful and flexible... very user-configurable. Farmstar uses various methods for creating raster images including Kriging (specially designed for very sparse data) and a proprietory, extra fast "Optimized" method developed by Fairport
Create raster or vector (coloured circles or coloured lines) representations of soil test data, leaf test data and any other data you may record along with GPS coordinates. With vector representation you display data values and position them on the map at any angle and size
Combine data sets to create averaged data over several years
Interface with GPS hand held logging devices. This allows you to log areas (e.g. Areas of weeds) on the ground and transfer the information to your computer
Display statistical analysis of data for whole paddocks or within smaller, digitised areas within paddocks
Sub-Set Data to analyse special areas within paddocks. Confine yield and other images using the "Image Constraint" system
Export your data as "CSV" for importing into Excel. Import "CSV" files from Excel
Create "VRT" recipe maps for all commonly used Variable Rate Control systems (KEE, Farmscan, Rinex, Flexicontrol) for accurate seed, fertiliser and chemical applications
Combine spatially variable data from more than one paddock (even an entire farm) and display it in raster or vector form
Combine Yield Data from any yield monitoring system... meaning for example that if you have a Case harvester and a John Deere harvester and a MicroTrak equipped harvester in the same field, FarmStar can combine their data into a single data set for yield mapping
Live GPS Mapping (FarmStar Lite only). Moving Map display. Create Farm Maps (any maps) interactively. PAM+FarmStar users can also use FarmStar Lite at no extra cost.
Fairport | Farm Management & Software
Fairport develops quality software predominantly for the agricultural and horticultural industries.
We believe the reasons for our success over many years are:
We are owned and operated by people with backgrounds in farming. We are always prepared to listen to our clients - we know that without them we'd be nobody. We have never been complacent - we have always strived for ways to better our products and services.
We started our journey in 1988 in Western Australian - Australia's (and one of the world's) harshest and most demanding farming environments. Some have said that if we'd started out anywhere else, the software would not be as good as it is ... That is, if you can satifsfy the needs of farmers in Western Australia, the software must be OK.
Fairport works with and alongside industry leaders, governments, agricultural education institutions, national and state research organisations and some of the world's largest and best run agricultural companies. We have formed software commercialization partnerships with research organizations and have been selected to form partnerships with world leading agricultural machinery companies, chemical manufacturers, produce acquirers in various projects over many years.
We are proud to be supporters and sponsors of Nuffield Farming Scholarships - giving a bit back to the industry that has stood by us over many years.
PAM was first released in March 1989 and has become the "Standard" for agricultural recording in Australia. Now the Fairport suite of software products are are used across many countries around the globe.
