Product Trial

You can try out Field Explorer by creating a developer account and subscribing on the product page. The trial allows full access to the APIs for a limited number of locations.

Calls to the API products can be made from your coding environment or through this portal.

  • While logged into this portal, navigate to the API documentation and use the "Try it" button for a particular end-point. The portal will automatically include your trial subscription key in the header of the API call, and display the contents of the API call and response.
  • From your own development environment, construct a call to the relevant end-point and set header parameters including providing your subscription key. This is visible to you in your profile on this portal.

Trial Access

While on a trial, API access is limited to a selection of predetermined fields:

  • The fields of the Cedar Farm near Reading.
  • The fields of the Rothamsted Research Farm near Harpenden.
  • Eighteen other fields from around the UK.

These fields are shown in the navigable map below, and a full list of the field IDs is available for download.

To upgrade to a full subscription, contact Agrimetrics to discuss your needs.

API Usage

  • Field Facts, Field Trends and Field Forecasts can access the trial fields shown below. Requesting any other field IDs will return a 403 response, signalling that you do not have access to those resources.
  • Field Finder has no restrictions, but data is only available for those fields within the trial.
  • Field Search can search any area, but the results will be restricted to the trial fields.
  • GraphQL can search any area, but the results will be restricted to the trial fields.
