Development of Cultivation Plan Programme (Wisu) for an Export Product to Russia
Funded by Euregio Karelia Neighbourhood Programme 2001-2006

Objective of the project

The main objective of the project was to develop a Finnish cultivation plan program (Wisu) into an export item to Russia.

Main activities

• Translating Wisu into Russia and localising it for the Russian conditions.


The Cultivation Plan program was translated into Russian as planned. During programming, the Russian version was also localised by adding, for example, a Russian product selection and municipalities. The application was put into production use. However, active users of the software are primarily in the manure industry rather than on farms due to the lack of a committed partner in Russia for distributing the software and handling the associated advisory services. It also became apparent during the project that the large farms in Russia have different needs for software content than Finnish family farms. Russian farmers have, for example, needs related to managing the equipment, personnel and materials of a large farming unit. These needs could be addressed using similar software to that already developed for use by contractor companies in Finland.
