Version 2013.05.545 Now Available

January 18, 2013 - Farm Works Software® has released version 2013.05.545 of the Office software.


Enhancements include:

  • Support for Trimble CFX-750 Yield Data - Farm Works™ Mapping software now supports reading yield data from the Trimble® CFX-750™ display.
  • Guidance Layer Copy/Paste Enhancements - Mapping software now supports additional enhancements to copy and paste of guidance lines.  If you copy and paste a line to a guidance line layer, the program will create a new guidance line with the appropriate type (Straight A/B or Contour) so the line can be sent out to a supported display.
  • Support for Ag Leader Ag Data Files – Farm Works Mapping software supports new "Ag Leader AgData Logs" data driver (*.agdata and *.agsetup) which is Version 1.0.11.0. This version supports reading yield data (including summary information), coverage/as-applied data (including summary information), guidance lines, boundaries, supplies, operators, equipment, tank mixes (note that tank mixes must be linked to an existing tank mix), and markers. This version also supports writing out guidance lines, boundaries, supplies, operators, and tank mixes.
  • Enhanced Tank Mix Linking – Farm Works Mapping software enables linking of imported tank mixes from a display to existing ones on the desktop computer. In the prior version, linker function only listed supplies.
  • Updated Scale Ticket Functionality – Mapping software now offers enhancements to scale ticket functionality. In the past, the Scale Ticket box would only apply the FM% when the ticket moisture was above the Dry Moisture %. It now applies it regardless of moisture level.
  • Added Support for Relative Heights in Profile View - Farm Works Surface software now allows you to view a profile that shows elevation with relative heights instead of only elevation. This view is activated when data is logged with Relative Heights.
  • Improvements to Overall Speed – Farm Works Surface software has received a number of changes to improve overall speed. This feature will be noticed particularly when working with section lines within the Profile view when there is a lot of topographic data.
  • Fixed Printing Adjustments to Form 1099  – Farm Works Accounting software now supports adjustments to recipients name (moving down) and city, state, zip (moving up) on form 1099 so it shows better in envelop address window.
  • Multiple Report Viewing - Accounting software now supports the ability to view multiple reports on the screen at the same time.  This feature is especially useful when using multiple monitors and different reports are desired for viewing on each monitor.
  • Updated 2013 Payroll Taxes - Accounting software now supports 2013 federal and FICA withholdings tables.  Medicare withholdings have also been updated with improved reports for social security and federal withholdings.

Customers of the Office software who are subscribed to the Update Service Plan (USP) will automatically receive these features by selecting “Check for Updates" located under the Help menu.  Another option is to use the download link: http://www.farmworks.com/support/downloads.php

2013 - The Year of Computerized Records

January 3, 2013 - It will be a pivotal year for most farmers as they try to solve their information management puzzle.  As farms continue to expand acreage and deal with new complicated regulations, computerized record keeping will become even more important in 2013 and beyond.  Lorra and Jim Martens of Inman, Kansas have been using Farm Works™ Accounting and Mapping software on their farm since 1994.  “We wanted and needed a better way to manage our farm records”, says Lorra.  Information management was very different in 1994 because the personal computer was just starting to become accepted as a farming tool.  Lorra states, “We took advantage of training classes offered by Farm Works so that we could learn it quicker while meeting others in the classroom with the same concerns as us.”  Training classes are not necessary, but they do offer tips in accelerating the process of mastering the software while developing relationships with others in the classroom.   Soon Lorra started her own consulting business in 1995 to assist local farmers with their information management concerns.  Today she is one of the leading information management consultants in the Midwest.  Lorra has big plans for 2013 as she focuses on more training, sales, and consulting services for farmers throughout the United States.
