Farm Works™ Surface software is an analysis and design tool for use with the Trimble® WM-Drain™ farm drainage solution. Surface ensures the optimal placement of tile and surface drains in both surface and sub-surface drainage water management projects, helping to drain fields adequately and increase crop yields. Easily overlay other layers such as yield or soil types to help visualize the field from different perspectives.

Requirements

  • Microsoft® Windows® XP, 7, or 8
  • 128 MB Memory
  • 50 MB Hard Drive Space



Trimble Agriculture Farm Works Surface Software 1

Topography

Drainage Line Creation


  • Utilize the drawing tools to tie laterals to mains, create parallel lateral spacings, and clip drainage lines.
  • Layout and design drainage tile by size, pipe type, phase, then enter the minimum depth, maximum depth, and optimum grade for each.
  • Utilize the design check feature to confirm that all drainage lines flow correctly.
  • Easily make design adjustments based on vertical profile and set or change direction of water outlet.

Advanced Feature Guidance Line Management


  • Design planned guidance lines that follow terraces, boundaries, and other features for use with the Trimble FmX integrated display or CFX-750™ display
  • Utilize specialized tools for smoothing and extending/clipping for efficient creation of accurate lines adapted specifically for the features of the field.
  • Analyze the number and total length of planned lines to insure the creation of the most optimal paths for planting.
  • Save feature guidance line layer for repeatable guidance across multiple years and operations.
