Updates in Agrian prescription creator

The new Agrian tool provides the ability to create prescription maps based on all operational layers of Field Analyzer Beta. In addition, the tool works with Gen 4 harvest data, is compatible with large fields (about 250 ha [618 acres]), and supports more crop yield types. There are also some user experience improvements.

To create a prescription map, only two steps are necessary.

Updates to prescription type and source when creating a prescription map

First, the user selects the prescription type in the Operation step. It is now possible to select between application and seeding. Furthermore, soil survey is available as a new prescription source.

Edit rates while viewing the prescription map

In the next step, Analysis, it is possible to edit the rates while looking at the prescription map. The tool provides the ability to choose tank mixes in the products list.

Synchronization of machine off-sets

Overwrite Equipment Profiles function turned on to import and update machine settings

Overwrite Equipment Profiles function turned on to import and update machine settingsMachine off-sets are now automatically synchronized when a machine is imported from a display. A machine without any off-sets or with incorrect off-sets that were created in John Deere Operations Center and sent to the machine can be adjusted on the machine itself. After exporting the machine from the display, the off-sets are automatically updated in Operations Center. Next time the machine with a setup file is sent to a display, the last-updated off-sets are available.

NOTE: To enable automatic update of machine off-sets, the machine has to be originally created in the John Deere Operations Center. Machines created on a John Deere display do not appear in the machine list in Operations Center (top left corner in the main view, machine icon).

NOTE: To import and update machine settings, the Overwrite Equipment Profiles functionality in Organization Preferences has to be on.

Flags in MyOperations mobile app

Create, edit and delete point flag boundaries

Create, edit, and delete point flag boundariesFlags can be created, edited, and deleted via MyOperations app. It is now possible to use point flag categories which have been defined in John Deere Operations Center. Flags can be created inside and outside of a field boundary.


  • Mark locations important to the organization from everywhere and at any time by adding a point flag via the mobile app.
  • Attach notes and images to flags for a precise description.
  • Use flags on an as-needed basis by filtering the map view (Show Flags on Map).


Images and notes that are attached to the point flag are shared with the Operations Center and are available for other MyOperations app users within the same organization, as well as in Land Manager and Field Analyzer Beta. Flags can be transferred to displays and other organizations via the Setup Builder tool.

NOTE: To view flags in Field Analyzer, the selected field has to have a seeding, application, tillage, or harvest job documented. Colors of categories are not synced.
