Video: Tips in Yield Monitor Preparation

September 22, 2015 - Don’t overlook the importance of preparing your yield monitor for capturing accurate yield data.  Just a few easy steps can save you time and headaches when it comes to data management.  No matter what in-cab display you are using, the first essential step is correctly sending your resources from Farm Works Software.  This can be done using a USB flash drive or wirelessly using Connected Farm™ Office Sync.  The Farm Works resource names will appear from a drop-down list for the operator to select; in addition, streamlining the data flow when jobs are completed.

Former Owner of Farm Works Passes

September 4, 2015 - Norman L. Teegardin, founder of CTN Data Services and Farm Works Software, passed away on August 3, 2015.  At 69 years of age, he left this world too soon, especially for his beloved wife of 51 years, Margo.  Norm was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis in December 2014 and as a believer in God and heaven, was at peace with his destiny.

Norm led the agriculture industry in cutting-edge farming software for more than two decades. He and Margo moved to Brenham, Texas, in 2011 where they founded Bahia Game Ranch specializing in breeding and raising white tail deer.  Norm was very accomplished. He was an entrepreneur, coach, mentor, generous, big-hearted, saw the best in others, expected the best in others, strong-willed, master of the one-liner, defender of the underdog, devoted husband, father and grandfather.

He is survived by his wife, Margo of Brenham, Texas; daughter, Jennifer Miller and her husband, Tom Ingersoll, of South Bend, Indiana; daughter, Tricia Teegardin Edwards and her husband, Burke Edwards, of Austin, Texas; daughter, Callie Teegardin of Houston, Texas; granddaughter, Tatum Miller of Indianapolis, Indiana; granddaughter, Paxton Lewis of Salt Lake City, Utah; grandson, Reed Lewis of South Bend, Indiana; brother, Edwin Teegardin and his wife, Peg, of Hamilton, Indiana; and a sister, Annetta Teegardin of Auburn, Indiana.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to "Camp for All," 6301 Rehburg Road, Burton, Texas 77835, which is a summer camp for kids with special needs located in Burton, Texas. Camp for All was special to Norm as his sister, Nancy, had special needs and died at the age of 25 and Margo is actively involved in the charity.  More info on donations can be found here.

If customers or resellers of Farm Works would like to send their condolences to Margo and family, please email them to

Version 2015.06 Now Available

August 28, 2015 - Farm Works Software® has released version 2015.06 of the Office software.

Enhancements include:

  • Updated Synchronization of Connected Farm Scout App Data (Mapping) – a new button "Sync Resources with Website" is available for synchronizing data between Farm Works and the Connected Farm Scout app.  This allows you to see and select resources from Farm Works (boundaries, field names,...) on the Scout app so that your data easily flows from one platform to another.  This free app allows you to GPS map field boundaries, mark flags, and enter scouting information from your smartphone or tablet.
  • Synchronization of Connected Field App Data (Mapping) – a new button "Sync Resources with Website" is available for synchronizing data between Farm Works and the Connected Farm Field app.  This allows you to see and select resources from Farm Works (boundaries, field names,...) on the Field app so that your data easily flows from one platform to another.  This free app allows you to enter field activities from your smartphone or tablet without the need of a in-cab display.
  • Updated Resource Syncing with Connected Farm (Mapping) – a number of minor fixes and enhancements to the "Sync Resources with Website" feature.
  • Updates to Node Edit Tool (Mapping) – now you can select a point on a line or area without moving it.  You must click again to move the point. Additionally, the coordinates for a selected point on a line or area will be displayed at the bottom of the screen and you can now right-click anywhere on a line or boundary to add a point.
  • Support for CNH Zip Data (Mapping) – you can now read and write CNH data as .zip files into Farm Works.  This works with zip files that are used with the CNH telematics system.
  • TMX-2050 Yield Data via Office Sync (Mapping) – improved how data is imported from the Trimble TMX-2050™ display when using Office Sync.
  • Precision Planting Enhancement (Mapping) – now you can import multiple Precision Planting .dat files at one time.
  • Fixed Merging Harvest Jobs (Mapping) – fixed merging harvested jobs so that Reconciled Yield did not create same value as Dry Yield.
