AGROBASE Generation II®

The Agronomy and Plant Breeding Management System

AGROBASE Generation II is a Windows-based, intuitive, fully relational Agronomy software system, utilizing some of the latest software technology. The software is licensed as a CORE System, with additional modules that can be licensed according to an individual's needs. The CORE System is the foundation of the program, and provides all the basic functions and features required to conduct agronomic or plant breeding trials. The CORE System and modules are being enhanced annually, with new modules envisioned for the future.

System Requirements

AGROBASE Generation II® is a Microsoft Windows®-based software product running on Windows® 2000 Service Pack 2 or later, Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, Windows 7 and Windows 8 (users must have Admin access rights for installation, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the aforementioned operating systems are supported).

The AGROBASE Generation II installation requires 100Mb free disk space.

The user’s data files will require at least 25Mb for a small research program, up to 1GB, or more, for a larger research or breeding program.

AGROBASE Generation II also runs on Windows Server®2000, 2003, 2008, 2012 (both 32 or 64-bit versions) and peer-to-peer network systems running on Windows®2000, or later.
