Latest Overseer Update Reduces Workload For Users
OVERSEER Limited released today the latest update to OVERSEER® Nutrient Budgets (or OVERSEER). The new version OVERSEER 6.2.2 reduces the amount of manual data users need to input into the tool.
OVERSEER 6.2.2 lets users access soils data directly from Landcare Research’s S-map database. OVERSEER uses the S-map database to seamlessly provide online data on soil properties affecting farm nutrient leaching. State of the art technologies link the two systems.
"This new OVERSEER version is great news for users, reducing the manual input of up to 18 soil data fields. For the first time, OVERSEER has connected with other software to provide auto-population of data. Our users have been asking for this capability. The new version is an exciting step forward for OVERSEER," Dr Caroline Read, OVERSEER Limited General Manager says.
Landcare Research General Manager Justine Daw welcomes the new partnership with OVERSEER.
“Landcare Research worked closely with OVERSEER to develop and roll out this new innovation. The linking of S-map and OVERSEER means our valuable national soils data deliver even greater benefit to New Zealand, helping improve farm environmental performance,” Ms Daw says.
OVERSEER is continuously evolving to support changing farming practices and systems, reflect the latest scientific research and improve the user experience. Like all software applications, OVERSEER requires regular updating to fix bugs identified in the software - and to incorporate minor changes to help the software perform better.
This update also includes several reports to help users review their animal inputs.
“OVERSEER estimates of farm nutrient losses improve every time there is a software update,” says Dr. Read.
