Use case: How to export FluroSense zone maps into Proagrica SST Summit

Management zone maps created using FluroSense can be exported to Summit for use in creating recommendations and other records. The below steps show you how, with thanks to Steve Richmond from Kerin Landmark Rural.

  1. In FluroSense, select the “Zoning” tab.
  2. Generate a zone using the date, index and zone settings you require.
  3. If you wish to set the recommended application rates in Flurosense, click the “Edit Rx” slider and enter the rates for each zone.
  4. Click the “Download SHP of the Zones” button.
  5. A zip file of the zones in shapefile format will be saved to your download folder. You will need to unzip the files before they can be imported into Summit. In Windows, right click on the zip file and select “Extract All”.
  6. Load Summit and select the “Maps” button from the top menu.
  7. Select “Create Management Zones…” button
  8. Expand the Management Zone Editor screen that appears until “Load Shapefile” appears in the lower right hand section and select it
  9. Browse and select the shapefile you exported from FluroSense
  10. In the following “Load Shapefile” window, locate the User Defined Name selection box and select either "Mean CCCI" or “Rx” (depending on what you did in step 3). Click the “Load” button
  11. You should now be able to see the zones in Summit. You can use the “Select’ tool to click on each zone and view it’s Rx value. You can also edit the zones, e.g.: include smaller zones within larger ones, using the Summit zone tools on the right hand side of the screen
  12. When ready to save the zones, click the save button on the bottom of the screen. Select which crop to assign the zone to, enter a name and click save.
  13. You can use the imported FluroSense zones to create recommendations which can then be exported to any of the controller formats supported by SST.
