SST Summit Version 8.1.9 \\ Released:  Jan. 12, 2017



  • Yield: Manually Merging Layers:
    • User now able to manually merge Yield data that is:
    • Same (Yield Schema + Crop + Season + Field). Yield Schema = Seed, Cotton, Sugar Cane, Silage. 
    • This also means a user is not able to edit a Crop across schemas (Corn cannot be changed to Cotton, for example)
    • Bug work having to do with properly enforcing which data layers are eligible for merging.
  • Deere EIC Components:
    • Update Deere components that are used for local imports/exports.
  • AgLeader Components:
    • Update Ag Leader components that are used for local import/exports. 
    • This addresses several outstanding bugs. 
  • Newest Precision Planting components (FODD) linked:
    • This means that a user will be prompted to acquire the latest Precision Planting FODD if necessary.



  • Sync Issues:
    • This was made highest priority of the duration for the sprint. This had a direct effect on the amount of new work attempted and/or completed in this iteration.
  • Recalculating Statistics:
    • Addressed an issue where we were calculating Wet Yield rather than Dry Yield when creating certain tabular reports. The data stored at the polygon level is/was accurate, but the values that were stored as pre-calculated values for consumption in these reports (and Aggregate Reporting Dashboard) were showing Wet Yield instead of Dry Yield.
    • Remedy: 
    • A Summit user will be required to recalculate all stats for all Yield: Seed (read: Corn, Soybeans, *, Wheat). They will be presented a progress bar at startup with a Cancel button. If a user clicks Cancel, they will be shown a message that lets them know that they continue to receive this prompt until such time that they allow it to complete.  AGAIN: It can be cancelled and does not prevent their ability to sync. They will be shown this prompt on every launch of Summit until they have successfully completed recalculation. 
    • If a report requires stats to be present, and the stats are not calculated, Summit will calculate the stats and store new values. 
  • Best Practice:
    • Let the process run during a period of inactivity. We understand that this has the potential to be very inconvenient, which is why we worked to make sure we do not prevent a user from using Summit while we clean up invalid data.
  • Offset Repair:
    • Situationally, Yield polygons did not have the correct offset values applied. This involved a Summit command in order to correct.
    • This required a migrate of data both locally and on the server. The local migrate of the data is not cancelable and must complete before a user is able to sync. This manifests as a Summit command and a user will be forced to look at it, unfortunately.
    • Why? If we do not force this to occur, it becomes possible that invalid data will be synced up and displace server-migrated data. This is to ensure that once data is migrated, it stays migrated.
    • How long did the migrate take? Some loose metrics:  3-4 secs for a 60 ac layer to migrate. 
  • Yield Monitor Serial Number:
    • We were not capturing and/or persisting Monitor Serial Number during import, whether it is done locally (via Summit) or online ( 
  • Local Imports:
    • All supported formats have a Serial Number available. Some formats (or datasets) do not support/provide Serial Number.
    • This does not address already-imported data, only newly-imported data. 
  • Online Import:
    • All supported formats will have a Serial Number available when format supports the concept of Serial Number and it is populated. Otherwise it will remain null and be expressed as "Unknown" in the Yield Editor within Summit.
    • Online Import had this ability restored mid-December. 
    • This does not address already-imported data, only newly-imported data.
  • Formats capable of supporting Monitor Serial Number:
    • AgLeader: AgLeader 3, Advanced Text, ILF and YLD
    • John Deere: Greenstar Original, Greenstar GS2/3
    • Precision Planting:  Yieldsense
    • Case: Voyager 1 and 2
  • Yield-by-Stats function properly after a Merge occurs: 
    • Addressed issue where background-calculated Yield-by-Statistics failed to execute after a merge via local import (Same Crop + Season + FieldID). Since the data has changed, the stats must be recalculated.
  • Yield not loading in Maps:
    • Have implemented changes to address this issue.
  • FarmRite Reports: Yield reporting as user-defined:
    • Addressed issue where Yield (points) did not map when a user-defined legend is assigned.
  • Viewing Tile Line operations in Records:
    • Addressed issue where Tile Line operations would not load in Records.
  • John Deere As-Applied with missing Seeding Rates:
    • Data-specific instances of as-applied data where Seeding Rate was present in the proprietary data but not captured.
  • Sync issues for comma-separated users:
    • Related to comma vs decimal separated values causing Fields to not sync properly.
  • Polygon Soil Sampling enforcing SampleID unnecessarily:
    • Resolved an issue that put a user in a position where they cannot select another polygon in a soil sampling operation and requires a user to populate SampleID even if user does NOT desire to do that.
  • Duplicate Report Pages - Imagery:
    • Situationally, Summit created duplicate pages when reporting imagery in Record Reports.
  • Summit FR Dashboard date filters:
    • Changed to inclusive rather than exclusive - e.g. selecting today's date returns results with today's date.
  • Cotton Analysis Surfaces:
    • Cotton Yield data was not properly communicating Turnout Percentage for task execution. 
    • This was a fix implemented server-side during Task execution - was deployed to PROD on 21 December
  • Generous Merging of Point operations in Maps:
    • User could merge non-compatible operations in Maps. Have now properly ensured that only eligible layers of data are merged.
  • YieldSense - Invalid files hang/crash Summit:
    • Summit will now survive invalid files and continue import
  • Sync/Yield - Set admin of future data:
    • Yield that is imported locally will now properly set the admin IF set to specify another user as the admin.
  • Yield by Management Zone report listing wrong crop in title:
    • A user has lost the ability to specify a report title in the report settings for Yield by Management zone. This means, whatever this value was when the ability was lost is what the report title has been ever since.
    • The Report Setting will now have the value that was previously used - a user will now have to change this report title if they desire to have Crop-specific text in their report title.

SST Summit Version 8.2.0 \\ Released:  Feb. 9, 2017

V 8.2.0 is a Patch Installation



  • Stratus now only supports Tile Line and Tile Point operations 
    • After this update, only Tile operations (Line and Point) and Grower/Farms/Fields will continue to be collected and synced to Summit. This means a user could have previously-collected data in Stratus that will not sync to Summit after this update. 


  • Added the ability to Export Recommendations directly from the Maps Section 
    • User will no longer have to navigate to Data Management to export their recommendations. User can now export recommendations they are currently viewing in the Maps Section. The Export Recs button will become available upon selecting eligible recommendations (Planting/Commercial Fertilizer/Customer Fertilizer/Tank Mix). 
  • Improved labelling of CEI layer in Maps 
    • User can now see what data is populated within a CEI operation in the layer label when layer is loaded in Maps. Behavior will be largely like the Viewer (i.e., If Planting and Fertilizer are found, the layer will display "Planting / Fertilizer."). 



  • Added the option to create a new multi-panel Product Recommendation Summary PDF report during the Recommendation Export 
    • Users can now create PDF output of all Product Recommendations included in an export instance. Each field included in the export will receive its own PDF (some exceptions apply). The page is optimized for up to six products, each of which will have a tabular summary and a thumbnail of the selected recommendation with static classification. 

agX Connections 

  • Reinstated the prompt to add Field(s) to outgoing connection post-sync  
  • Enhanced the Connections View by hiding rejected or empty Connections  
    • User's empty Connections (i.e., no shared Fields) or Rejected Connections are removed from the Home Screen and new Field Prompt. A user can only modify the hidden Connections by re-establishing the agX Connection and/or sharing Fields. 


  • New functionality added to email the error logs directly to SST Software Support Staff 
    • Users can now easily send error logs to SST Software Support. A user's default mail client will launch via the error logs popup, zipping up the entire contents of the logs folder. 

Bugs Fixed: 


  • Fixed an issue with unknown data formatting that caused Enalta Yield (Sugar Cane) import to fail due to unknown data formatting 


  • Fixed an issue with invalid TGT exports where certain products caused problems with illegal characters 
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the 'Filter by date' from working when exporting a FarmRite Recommendation 
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the export of a Lime product recommendation via export single shapefile, where the product was "Lime, Ag" 

Records Section 

  • Fixed an issue where no drop-down was active when opening a CEI operation within Records  
  • Fixed an issue that prevented results showing when the search was narrowed by date range and operation in the open dialogs box in Records 
  • Fixed an issue where no drop-down was active when saving an Operation in Records  

Maps Section 

  • Fixed an issue that prevented visible layer settings from updating when editing As-Applied or Yield layers in Maps.   
    • The text shown in the Visible Layer Settings was not being updated after a merge or an edit.  
  • Fixed an issue where a newly proposed agX Connection from Summit would generate both a  "new" and "old" email template 
    • Only the new is sent now. 


  • Fixed an issue that caused reports to fail when using Default Imagery. In some instances, a user would encounter issues if attempting to report when Default Images were assigned to a Field.  
  • Fixed an issue with a Boundary Map that generated the incorrect total field area in report . 
  • Record Reports - All Costs - Itemized - Report Settings 
    • Report settings involving breakdowns are honored 
  • Fixed an issue that caused cost reports to generate double lines for Seeds and Custom Fertilizers. The issue involved products associated with multiple companies that were not treated separately. 
  • Fixed an issue with Custom Fertilizer, where an Individual operation report was not reporting a specific data set  
  • Fixed an issue that prevented same Units of Measure for Sugar Cane yield data in both Maps and Reports 
  • Fixed Yield Map issue that prevented the Yield Histogram from fitting on the page. Histogram formatting was improved to accommodate large values, or a large number of classes.  
  • Fixed issues with the Imagery Report. Imagery Report now sorts images per field by date and ensures regionalized data formats are honored. 
  • Fixed the Pesticide Individual Operations Reports to prevent the report logo from falling off to the second page  
  • Fixed the functionality of Cost in the following reports:  Record Reports, Planting Reports, Individual Operations Report 
  • Fixed the "Infinity" values in the Planting Recommendation Summary by replacing with a dash  
  • Improved the formatting of the comments in reports to better accommodate attributes that contain up to 4,000 characters. Fixed reports include:  Operation History Reports, Individual Operations Reports, Scouting Reports and now include better layout and logo retention on the page. 
  • Fixed the Application versus Recommendation selector in the Soil Sampling Map so it is functional at report runtime in Record Reports 
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Soil Sample Record Report from including results in the output 
  • Fixed an issue that caused an error when running recommendation report/soil sampling/individual operation history 
  • Fixed multiple data-specific bugs 


  • Fixed several Issues with filters in the Favorites Forms
