We are currently migrating to a new online training system. Outdated series have been removed and are being updated. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Sirrus is available within the iTunes market. This video shows how to find Sirrus within the app market and install it.
Sirrus requires a SyncNow account. This tutorial will demonstrate logging in with a SyncNow ID who already have a SyncNow account from SST Summit.
In order to save space on your iPad, Sirrus allows you to download only the growers you need at that time.
When you no longer need access to a grower on your device, you can remove the grower to clear up space on your iPad. Removing a grower is different than deleting a grower.
The Settings menu allows you to change functionality within Sirrus, such as English or Metric options. This video walks through a few of the options a user will want to set immediately upon using Sirrus.
In this tutorial, we navigate through the Grower-Farm-Field Hierarchy within Sirrus.
Within Settings is the option to toggle the Grower pins on or off. Pins can chew up a lot of your tablets memory, causing the iPad to shut down Sirrus. In this video, we show you have to turn the pins off so as to save memory.
Data Bullets allow you to exchange data layers, along with admin rights, with other parties who have a SyncNow account without establishing SyncNow relationship.
In this tutorial, we demonstrate what appears within the Summit SyncNow pane when a DataBullet is received from Sirrus.
Sirrus allows you to build a contact list for sending Data Bullets. In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to add and delete contacts.
Sirrus provides the ability to digitize a highly accurate field boundaries without GPS by using high resolution, geo-referenced imagery. In this tutorial, we look at the steps involved in digitizing a simple boundary.
After digitizing a boundary, you may need to make adjustments to the vertices. This tutorial demonstrates how to move vertices and then assign a field to the grower-farm-field hierarchy.
Snapping common boundaries is a common occurrence when digitizing boundaries that share a border. In this tutorial, we demonstrate the process of snapping a common boundary.
There may be times when you are tempted to delete a field boundary and re-digitize a more accurate one. It is essential to understand how operation data is tied to a field boundary's GUID number. In this tutorial, we look at how to edit a field rather than delete it, thus maintaining the original GUID number.

The union feature allows for two adjacent polygons to be combined into one. In this tutorial, we use the union tool in an example where we need to expand our field boundary.
After digitizing the outer boundary of a field, Sirrus allows you to remove uncultivated areas. In this tutorial, we look at how to use the draw feature to remove uncultivated inner polygons.
There may times where you reclaim some land from section of brush or fix that chronic wet zone with some tiling. Sirrus allows you to easily convert uncultivated areas back to cultivated.
When digitizing complex boundaries, it helps to break down the process into smaller, manageable tasks. In this tutorial, we look at the steps involved and why to start with the outer boundary.
In the previous tutorial, we digitized the outer boundary of our field. We will now start to remove uncultivated areas using the split feature.
Continuing to remove uncultivated areas, this tutorial demonstrates how to use the split tool to remove an entire waterway cutting across a field.
In this tutorial, we demonstrate another approach when using the split tool as we remove the second waterway.
As we finish digitizing our complex boundary, this tutorial will cover some vital steps in saving and syncing edited boundaries.
Sirrus makes digitizing a center pivot and the surrounding dry land corners easy. In this tutorial, we cover the first step in digitizing a pivot, which is obtaining a radius measurement.
After obtaining a radius measurement, we can generate an accurate pivot boundary. This tutorial demonstrates how to generate the circular boundary and make adjustments for an accurate boundary fit.
Pivot boundaries often will have portions of straight edges in order to accommodate roads or other boundaries. In this tutorial, we look at how to adjust for straight sections by using the split polygon feature.
Once a pivot boundary is in place, you need to add dryland corners. In this tutorial, we add the bordering corners and utilize the snapping feature as we digitize the outer boundary.
Using a combination of the pivot tool and the split tool makes digitizing partial pivots easy. In this tutorial we obtain a measurement and set the initial pivot boundary.
After setting the initial pivot boundary, the split tool is utilized for trimming out partial pivots. In this tutorial, we split a pivot boundary and make final adjustments.
Sirrus provides the ability to sample by grid, zone, or to resample using a previous sampling operation. In the few tutorials, we will walk through how to create a sampling operation with a grid.
After creating a grid of reference points, Sirrus allows you to create a navigation route through the points. This navigation route will guide you from point to point while in the field pulling samples.
A record is created for each soil sample that is logged. Within the logged records section, you can change the options for the attributes.
Once you are in the field, Sirrus will guide you to each reference point. Once a sample is pulled, the reference point will be replaced with an actual point. Sirrus will then guide you to the next point to be sampled.
Sirrus allows for consistency in sampling from one season to the next by allowing you use previously sampled points as reference points.
Sirrus allows you to collect scouting data via points or polygons. In this tutorial, we show you where to set the point or polygon settings.
In this tutorial, we show where the scouting features may be accessed and how to use the agX Content picklists.
As we saw in the previous tutorial, Sirrus populates scouting data using picklists of agX Content. In this tutorial, we see how some picklists are dependent on others and how to make an agX Content request.
In this tutorial, we walk through an example of creating a scouting operation by dropping points throughout a field as you are scouting.
Continuing from the previous tutorial, we finish scouting the field, save our operation, and sync with the agX servers to secure our data.
After you save a scouting operation, a map layer of the operation will appear at the field level. When selected, scrolling data panes will appear at the bottom of the screen that interact with the map.
After scouting operations have been saved, PDF reports may be generated from within Sirrus.
During your scouting operations, you can associate images with a scouting operation. In this tutorial, we demonstrate the basics of adding a photo to a scouting observation.
In this tutorial, we continue to look at associating images with scouting observations, then we create an operation report with the associated images.
Sirrus provides the ability to create tank mixs or custom fertilizer applications so that you can easily prescribe them when needed. In this example, we demonstrate how to set up a tank mix.
After saving a scouting operation, you can immediately create a Rx tank mix. In this tutorial, we save a weed scouting operation and prescribe the tank mix we previously created as a recommendation.
Save the scouting data and associated Rx; then generate a report to send to your clients.
In this tutorial, we look how to access management zones at the field level and how to select zones by color classifications.
In this tutorial, we will demonstrate how to apply an operation to specific zones using planting as an example.
Continuing from the previous tutorial, we look at how to change the planting rate in a sub-zone of a classification.
