AgroWin®, the Crop Protection and Seeds Use Database

Agrobase compiles with its ‘World Agrocode Program’ proprietary information about the use of protection products and seeds from multiple sources, mainly from institutes that run farm interviews. The standardized data can then be analyzed on global level with the software AgroWin®. Agrobase supplies all necessary services for data management and hosting.

For more details please go to AgroWin®.

 

Agrobase-Logigram was founded in 1988. During the 1980's there had been a rapid increase in the number of countries where farm panels designed to collect and project agricultural pesticide usage were performed. Agrobase’s objective was to try to bring some order into this large flow of data with a view of rendering it accessible to computer analysis across the various countries. 

Agrobase developed the World Agrocode Program that includes the software Agrowin® and the standardization of data from different sources. The data from about 80 countries with 120000 products are managed today.

Since 2001 Agrobase has extended its range of products and manages the Global Crop Protection Database, called Homologa™ that became the international regulatory reference for pesticides. It is used by a wide range of users like crop protection product manufacturers, the food industry, governmental organizations, producers, importers, exporters, the World Bank, laboratories, universities and software suppliers for farm management/traceability systems.

2019: Merger of Agrobase-Logigram and LEXAGRI and Acquisition of Majority Stake by WEKA Group in the New Entity, which will retain the name of LEXAGRI

AgroWin®, World Agrocode Program

Agrobase-Logigram offers a complete package of services to allow its clients easy access to market information from different sources and countries.

Agrobase-Logigram does not supply any market research data but it helps to move the data from the original sources to Agrowin. The idea behind is to let the data providers worry about the content and to outsource a maximum of clerical/data-processing work like mapping to Agrobase. No retyping of data is needed anymore for internal market research data.

 

The services include

  • A standard software package (Agrowin) for the data analysis and data input.

  • Standardization and consolidation of market data of crop protection products and seeds from several sources.

  • Maintenance of database, feeding in data, verification and modification of database.

  • Supply help to data suppliers and to data analysts.

  • Conceive client specific solutions if necessary.

  • Hosting services for the database.

 

Software: Agrowin-Pro

Agrowin-Pro is a software that has been constantly developed over the last 30 years. The latest version is a complete new development that is introduced in 2015.

The main characteristics of Agrowin-Pro are

 

  • The structure of the database is written as such that it can take a maximum of detail, even down to the details of field level treatments. At the same time it is possible to work with the database on any data with much less granularity. It is the client who defines the granularity.

  • The system contains an extremely flexible way for analyzing market data. It offers solutions to users that only want to extract some standard reports as well as options for highly sophisticated reports.

  • The interface is mainly based on standard Windows techniques like the Windows

  • Explorer and most of reporting is done like Excel pivot tables.

  • Reports can be easily exported to Excel or transferred via text-files to other databases.

  • There is a data export option for graphical tools.

  • Values can be consolidated in any target currency with variable exchange rates or fixed exchange rates.

  • The tool “flexigroup’ allows the client to group countries, crops, products, actives etc...

  • It can be used for example to establish sales regions or product groups or other internal client standards.

  • The data is loaded today via standard text-files but ABL is working on new import- and export option directly to- and from Excel. Agrowin-Pro will also contain several other tools to modify data in a general like product prices or product volumes with all functionalities to manage the data.
