The farm files (also known as XML files) produced by the legacy OVERSEER Nutrient Budgets software can be uploaded into OverseerFM by selecting ↑Upload Farm File on your dashboard. A pop up modal will appear for the files to be uploaded. The files need to have been created in version 6.2.3 or 6.3.0. Files from earlier versions are not supported in OverseerFM.
If the file contains any of the following, it will be imported without these details and so will effect the results:
- Advanced soil properties for specifying immobilisation potential
- Pasture quality and clover levels
- Greenhouse gas settings - other farm inputs, capital emissions and unique greenhouse gas emission factors
- Monthly climate data
- Fertiliser by form
- Soil defined by soil series will be imported based on its soil order
Note: If you have defined animal mobs that are sold and have animals on farm at the end of the year a sales event will be created to sell these animals in June. This is to create consistent results; however if this should not be the case then edit the mob details and remove the event.
If any of this causes any issues for you, please contact support.
