General issues

Agroplanning is a solution that combines online software and the use of monitoring devices to increase agricultural productivity by monitoring the work of your machinery, the situation of your crops and the soil condition of your plot.

Agroplanning is composed of a web application (Agroplanning Connect) that allows you to manage your plots and the information linked to them (outputs, soil analysis, crop analysis, etc.). It also incorporates an advanced vehicle manager that allows you to connect your tractors or agricultural machinery and visualize their position in real time or analyze the work they are doing.

Agroplanning also has two different monitoring devices that are responsible for collecting farm data: LinkerBox (for vehicles and machinery), and SensorBox (for soil and environmental data collection).

Agroplanning is designed to be used by different types of users. Farm managers, individual farmers, agricultural service companies, field technicians, machinery manufacturers, etc. can benefit from the solutions offered by Agroplanning.

Of course! You can create a demo user in MyAgroplanning for free and check the information of some test vehicles that we have created for you. In this way you can test the functionalities of Agroplanning and discover how we can help you to increase the productivity of your farm.

The Agroplanning service operates under a monthly subscription system. You can check the subscription types and their fees in the "Plans and Prices" section, where you will also find the cost of our LinkerBox and SensorBox monitoring devices.

There are different subscription plans designed for the needs of each type of exploitation. You will also find plans aimed at management teams or companies with several farms, these are the right ones if you need tools for group work and large surface management.

The LinkerBox and SensorBox devices are easy to install and require no special configuration. You can install them yourself or ask us about our assembly service.

Agroplanning offers the leading management system in the market, with an update frequency of 5 seconds, a real time connection with your fleet. Our solution for agricultural vehicle management is based on the combination of the MyAgroplanning web application and the LinkerBox monitoring device.
