    My question is:
    Can a person write a prescription in Apex based on grid soil sample results pulled using Mobile Farm Manager? When I import the grid points from mobile farm manager into Apex, it doesn’t display in the Maps what each point represents. In addition it will not show the grid lines that were shown in mobile farm manager. Therefore, how could I compute the lime recommendations from the lab in the Apex program?

    Am I missing another piece of software because Apex can not perform this task of grid zones?

    Unfortunately there seems to be very little functionality bringing back in items, such as soil samples, back into Apex. The MFM app seems to be more about the maps than anything.

    You’re not missing anything. I have been told Farmworks and SMS software can work with the MFM app generated files. Just email them to your computer and import the text file into those software packages. Maybe that functionality within Apex will be added with a software update or add on activation, but I obviously can’t promise anything. Make sure your dealer knows what you’d like to see so they can pass it on
