In the Faconex project exchange of digital task information between farmers and agricultural contractors via the FIspace platform is developed. Every farmer can connect to every contractor. A farmer sends an order from his Farm Management Information System (FMIS) to his contractor’s Agricultural Contractor Management Information System (ACMIS) via FIspace. The contractor plans the task, possibly using other apps available on the FIspace platform like a weather app or workability app. The contractor then sends this task information from his ACMIS to his employee via a smartphone app. After the task is completed, the employee sends the operation data back to the ACMIS. Finally the contractor sends the operation data from his ACMIS back to the farmer’s FMIS via the FIspace platform.
