The sickle is a cultivation plan on a cell phone and a block accounting in your pocket. It also includes inventory accounting, map markings, block allocation, and threshing time forecasts. If you have a status ID, you get Sirp for free.
According to the feedback, Sirppi is very easy and quick to use. Many have said that it has also facilitated the inspection situation on both conventional and organic farms.
The sickle takes advantage of the location information of the fields and displays the cultivation information of the right block when you are in the field and open the sickle. You can acknowledge the cultivation operation with one click. You can add and change block accounting events directly on your mobile phone. With efficient event filtering and cell phone location, the screen automatically has exactly the sowing or spraying you need.
In addition to block accounting, you can make map entries at Sirpi either to your own location or by clicking on the map of the desired location. The map marking can be a waste oat, a landing hole, etc. and can also be accompanied by a photograph. Sickle also shows property boundaries. If you wish, you can share map markers, for example, as a WhatApp message or as a Google Maps driving instruction. The message includes a photo and a link that opens the map in a browser. The recipient does not need to log in or install anything. You can also distribute the desired blocks in an instant, for example to a contractor or inspector.
The sickle shows the heat sums and precipitation of almost 200 Meteorological Institute weather stations. Based on the heat sum and variety data, it predicts threshing times by block. The nearest weather station is searched for automatically. You can see the rainfall of the last month or the last week at a glance.
The sickle includes highly automated inventory accounting, which is also suitable for organic farms.
The sickle can be used either:
- As a standalone application
- Synchronized with Field Aid cultivation software
- With the help of other cultivation software.
If you have a Field Support Program, make Sirp IDs with it. This synchronizes the data between Sirpi and Field Support. If you want to get the Field Support program, you can download the free Field Support Micro app that works with Sirpi. Field support Micron is available at www.sirppi.fi/down.
If you want to use Sirpi as a standalone application, you can create a username for yourself the first time you start Sirpi. Then Sirppi retrieves the block data directly from the administration's Lever system. Usually, your own blocks and maps are on Sirpi’s screen in less than three minutes.
Many are surprised at how easy Sirpi is to use and how much a good app helps with your own work and decision making. For many farms, Sickle is enough for a single cultivation program. For example, organic farms receive both block accounting and organic inventory accounting in the same package.
The lever growth blocks are visible in Sirpi on the National Land Survey's map or aerial view. From the block map, you can see how the field plots have been divided in different years and what crops have been grown on them. From the field map, you can filter out, for example, the previous year's waste oat markings and easily navigate to the right place. You can even mark a seedling care site on a forest map, attach a photo to it, and then share the map entry as a WhatApp message directly to the forest advisor. In finding property boundaries, Sirppi is often the fastest tool.
By clicking on a block on the map, you can quickly see the cultivation events of the desired block. If you are in the field itself, Sirppi will automatically display the events in the correct field using cell phone location.
The sickle includes stock records, which are suitable for product flow accounting for organic farms, feed accounts for animal farms and for maintaining stocks of grain and supplies on all farms. Sickle's inventory accounting is highly automated and automatically retrieves most of the data from the block accounting. The stock status and stock value are displayed directly on the mobile phone.
The sickle is constantly being developed together with the users. All development suggestions are welcome.
The Sirppi Energia application is available for managing wood stocks waiting to be chipped.
