Facilitate the accessibility of productivity data by sugarcane farm managers through the SUGARSCAPE productivity software application : SRDC final report BSS248
Utilising previous research outcomes, a utility was added to the SUGARSCAPE software application to export productivity data and farm map data to common file types. The purpose of this export utility was to provide a method of importing seasonal data into the CANEMAN? block recording software application.The export utility integrates the SUGARSCAPE productivity software and the CANEMAN farm block recording software. Cane farm managers are now able to import their seasonal productivity data in one simple step. Not only does this utility decrease the amount of time required to update their CANEMAN records; the data imported will have far greater accuracy than manually imported data. The export procedure also provides access to a farm map, if map data are available for that farm.All project objectives were met. Recommendations for further research involve investing time in the ongoing maintenance of the software application to keep up with the dynamic environment of data collection and dissemination within the sugar industry.
