Setting Up Your Farm

How to set up your farm:

Setting up a farm on Agworld is done in two steps. The first step is setting up a property:

  1. Click "Create New Property".
  2. Drop a pin on where the property is located.
  3. Give the property a name.
  4. Click "Save & Add a Paddock".

The second step is to start mapping the farm's paddocks:

  1. Map the paddock's boundaries. This can be done in one of two ways: 
    1. Drawing the paddock's boundaries. First, click anywhere on the map to create the first axis point for the paddock's boundaries & then continue to click along the paddock's boundary to create the remaining axis points. Complete the paddock's boundaries by clicking on the first point. 
    2. Using the pivot tool to map a pivot irrigation paddock's boundaries. Click anywhere on the map to mark the pivot centre & then again to mark the radius of the pivot. 
  2. Remove any non-arable areas from your paddock by clicking "Remove" & then draw the boundaries of the non-arable area or use the pivot tool to create the boundaries of the non-arable area.
  3. Enter the paddock's name.
  4. Enter the crop & variety that will be grown in the paddock for this season. 
  5. Click “Save & Create Another” to continue adding other paddocks or click “Save” to finish.
