ABS Breeding User permissions+ module

This module makes it possible for the ABS administrator to limit permissions of users of your ABS Breeding, Trial or Field Map solution. The data to access can be narrowed down extremely as well in the plant, the crossing and the lay-out (locations) menu. The advanced search options, available columns in the finder and the plant form can show only data the user is allowed to see or change.

Below a limited overview of only plants in ABS Breeding is displayed:

Possible applications of the user permissions+ module can be:

  • If you are a cooperation, you can give your farmers permission to log into ABS. The farmers fill out the information you need on their fields
  • If you have external companies selling your varieties you can give them limited access to view information on the varieties registered in ABS

Use google maps to have an overview on your fields

ABS has developed a tool to plot your fields in google maps. The tool can be delivered:

  • As a separate application to be integrated to your own field data:  the field map application
  • Integrated with ABS Trial: field map module
  • Integrated with ABS Breeding: field map module
  • Integrated with ABS Seed: plot fields module

The data set you have imported either of your own system or from ABS, including data of the field is plotted in google maps. Examples of data which can be presented:
