In Farmable you can use a set of standard jobs and create custom job types for your own farm.

Jump straight to the job type:


Use this job type to plan and document the spraying activities against pests and diseases. It makes use of Farmable's integrated tank mix calculator in order to reduce the time spent on writing rates and calculating tank mixes on paper for yourself or team members.

The calculator helps you to calculate and document product and water usage for each field and spray. Based on the field size and product application rates the calculator provides you with a summary of how much water and product is needed for the whole spraying job as well as every single tank fill.

Following the standardized steps, you are recording required details for your spray reporting, such as:

  • Cause category and specific cause,

  • Product (incl. application rate and withholding period)

  • Equipment (incl. application rate)

  • Operator

When recording your spray activities using this job type, all details for your crop treatment report (e.g. spray reports) are automatically collected. You can download the reports from Logs in the Farmable Web Portal.


Use this standard job for nutrition treatments of your plants to provide them with essential nutrients. The integrated calculator helps you easily calculate the fertilizer volumes needed for each fertilization job. Similar to the spray calculator, it uses the field size and a fertilizer's application rate to generate a summary of how much product is needed for the whole job as well as every single tank fill.

Use this job type to record jobs to be used for your fertilizing report that you can export from the Farmable Web Portal.


Fertigation jobs are meant for nutrition treatments based on the injection of fertilizers into an irrigation system. It makes use of the same integrated calculator as the fertilizer job type.

Use this job type to record jobs to be used for your fertigation reports that you can export from the Farmable Web Portal.


Scouting can be used for pest and disease scouting and monitoring. It allows you to collect notes, trap and pest estimates in one place to document and report on pest thresholds for sprays, e.g. of insecticides. The report is created automatically and can be sent to any manager on your farm when completing the scouting job.

Additionally, your agronomist can use monitoring to keep track of observations when visiting your farm and share reports of notes, trap and pest counts and recommend jobs based on his observations.


This job type helps you deal with the same task in different locations. You can use this job type to easily collect locations for the same tasks in your fields and monitor their completion. Typical use cases for the multi-location job of other growers are replacement of dead trees, repair of broken fences or irrigation of replaces trees.

When completing the job, you can track which locations have been completed by your team or yourself.


The harvest job helps you plan and record your workers' time spend on harvesting and log their productivity. When assigning a harvest job to another user on your farm, they are able to

  • Track the duration of the harvest and

  • Log all harvest entries during picking.

Use this job type to allow users on your farm with the role Crew, to create harvest entries on your farm.
