They have made the agreement to make life easier for their customers, which include growers, farmers, agronomists and advisors.
The interface between GateKeeper and CropWalker will result in intelligent two-way data synchronisation of the key records - reducing in the time spent record-keeping, which has traditionally involved manually coordinating the data between the individual software systems.
Peter Henley, managing director of Farmade Management Systems, said: "This is a very positive move for the industry and will result in significant benefits for users of either system.
The two pieces of software working in conjunction with one another will ensure accuracy across an entire organisation and will significantly reduce the amount of time spent inputting data - not to mention considerably reducing the risk of expensive error."
Jonathan Evans, managing director of Muddy Boots Software, said: "We have worked closely with Farmade over the past few months and rigorously evaluated the concept of integrating both systems.
As a result, it is clear that formalising a method of data transfer between our systems will work in the best interest for our customers and our individual software systems; enabling us to work together to meet the challenging and complex requirements of the ever-changing food industry. We see this pioneering initiative as a staple for the future within the farming and agronomy sector."
The work is planned to be completed towards the end of September 2010.
