Farmax Products and Services
Farmax has changed how its products (and services) are named, delivered and priced, to make them simpler and easier to understand.
Farmax for Modelling
To explain the FARMAX pricing, firstly we need to look at the two main uses of the FARMAX tools and who utilises them.
Farmax is widely used across the pastoral industry to ‘model’ a farm system and then investigate and analyse different scenarios. While FARMAX is used in this way by farmers, researchers, students, and others, agricultural consultants are the main user of FARMAX in this manner.
Instead of forcing consultants to pay an upfront annual subscription to use FARMAX, the pricing will be the equivalent of a “pay as you go” system. This pay as you go system applies to the product: FARMAX Analysis. FARMAX Analysis allows you to create a Farmax model of a farm entity and do unlimited scenario analysis. Each Farm entity either real or hypothetical that is modelled using Farmax Analysis will incur an annual subscription of $200. Our strong recommendation is that Farmax models should only be created after you have been trained to use Farmax, or by accredited Farmax consultants.
Farmax for Monitoring
The second predominate use of Farmax is monitoring, and this is largely done by farmers. Monitoring functionality or the entering of actual information into a Farmax farm file cannot be done using FARMAX Analysis. To unlock that functionality the user needs to step up to the monitoring range of products. This is where Farmax really comes to the fore in providing the information for proactive tactical and operational decision making on farm within a season. The unique value Farmax provides is the constant ‘reforecasting’ of the likely outcome for the season as actual data is entered throughout the year.
Moving forward, anyone will be able to view (read only) Farmax models, as the Farmax application will be available for download at no charge. The ability to open and view a Farmax model will be granted by the owner of the Farmax farm file. This opens exciting opportunities and possibilities to share the information in Farmax files with other trusted parties. One area we are currently investigating is making Farmax demo farm files available online for public access.
