Fields & Plantings

Manage field locations and planting information. Fields are how you manage the locations for which you’re tracking weather, agronomics, models, and progress over growing seasons.

Get Field Locations

Every field has an ID that you define, plus a latitude and longitude. Fields are universal across all our APIs, and as you provide information about a field, some APIs (such as agronomics and models) can leverage that detail internally to more easily and seamlessly calculate information for you.

Create a Field Location

Creating a field registers the location with the aWhere system, making it easier to reference and track your locations as well as run agronomics and models automatically.

Delete a Field

Occasionally it is necessary to remove a field from your account, such as when you need to refine the geolocation. This API allows you to delete a field.

Get Plantings

Plantings are the way to manage crop and field activity in the aWhere API. Use this API to record the type of crop, planting date, projections, and actuals to get the most out of our more advanced APIs. Over time, this API also enables historical metrics for any given field in the platform.

Create a Planting in a Field

Creating a planting will provide the aWhere platform the information needed to run models and more efficiently calculate agronomic values. You can also use these properties to record projections for the field, like yield or harvest date, to track the success of a field over the course of a growing season. Recording projected and actual yield and harvest date also helps aWhere tune the models for even greater accuracy.

Delete a Planting

The aWhere API only references the most recent planting when calculating agronomics and running models, but if you want to keep your planting records clean for reporting and historical tracking purposes you can delete errant or incorrect plantings.
