The OneSoil Yield platform is integrated with the John Deere Operations Center to quickly exchange data, such as field boundaries, AB lines, and VRA maps.
Setting up integration will take just a few minutes but save you a lot of time down the line. For example, you won't need to download VRA maps to a flash drive, run to your machinery, and upload the files to the onboard computer.
⏰ Set up integration now
You can integrate with the John Deere Operations Center in your profile settings:
Go to the Profile tab in the bottom left part of the screen. Select Integrations → John Deere
In the window that opens, enter your John Deere OC username and password.
Grant the OneSoil app access to data. A message will appear confirming that integration was successful.
What you can do with this integration:
⛳️ Importing fields from the John Deere Operations Center
To import an organization's fields from the John Deere Operations Center to OneSoil Yield:
Click the Profile tab in the top-left part of the screen and select 'John Deere'. Then, click 'Settings'.
Select the organization whose fields you want to import.
Select the fields you want to import.
If you've previously added fields to OneSoil Yield using other methods, select that you want to compare and merge fields with matching boundaries. This will help avoid duplicates.
Voilà! Fields from your John Deere Operations Center account have been added to OneSoil Yield. Fields from the John Deere Operations Center will be marked with a special icon in the list of fields.
Fields that you import from the John Deere Operations Center cannot be edited or deleted in OneSoil Yield. All changes must be done in the John Deere Operations Center.
If a field is deleted in the John Deere Operations Center, you can select whether to keep it or delete it in OneSoil Yield. You can do this on the Field Report page.
If a field has been already analyzed in OneSoil Yield and if you change its boundaries in the John Deere Operations Center, you must reanalyze the field on the ‘Field report’ page by clicking 'Update and analyze'.
💡 When importing field boundaries, you'll also import the data used to build VRA maps and Work Plans: crops, hybrids, seeds, fertilizers, and chemicals.
🚜 Importing AB lines from the John Deere Operations Center
As soon as you import fields from the John Deere Operations Center, OneSoil Yield will transfer over the AB lines, as well. You'll need these when building control strips. To do so, select the name of the AB lines you want to use right now in the Equipment Direction window. We'll discuss building control strips in more detail later.
🗺 Exporting VRA maps from OneSoil Yield
This feature lets you seamlessly transfer VRA maps to John Deere machinery, to the John Deere Operations Center, or to the Work Planner tool in JD Operation Center.
To export a VRA map to the John Deere Operations Center:
After the VRA map is built, click 'Export' → 'Send', select the organization, then select the 'File' option, and the VRA map will appear in the John Deere Operations Center.
In the John Deere Operations Center, go to the 'Files' tab and find the VRA maps from OneSoil Yield. You can sort by the file's creation date or by its name (these attributes are in the file name). Select the file, click 'Transfer', and select the equipment you need.
There you go! The VRA map is now on the machinery's onboard computer, and you can start working in the field.
This method works for all fields in your account. It doesn't matter which method you used to add them.
If you use the John Deere Operation Center's Work Planner, you can schedule the operation in OneSoil Yield:
After the VRA map is created, click 'Export' → 'Send', select the organization, then select the 'Work Planner' option.
After the operation is sent, you can view it in the 'Work Planner' tab in the John Deere Operations Center.
This method only works for fields that you've imported from the John Deere Operations Center.
🌻 Importing yield maps from the John Deere Operations Center
This step is required to analyze the results of the experiment, i.e., to understand how different application rates affected yield in each zone.
Click the profile icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and select 'John Deere', then 'Settings'.
Make sure to enable the 'Automatically get machinery data from the Operations Center' option.
Choose the organization and fields for which you want to import yield maps.
Click the 'Confirm' button, and the app will start synchronizing the data. It may take some time, but your yield map will soon appear in the 'VRA Maps & trials' tab!
