Trial project information and data can be uploaded to OFT using the web-based OFT Administration (Admin) Centre. Once trial projects are uploaded, trial contributors can login and manage their own trial information and data (e.g. update, publish, remove) at any time. Digital documents or files such as trial reports, photographs, maps and site information, can be uploaded and attached to trial projects.
Trial contributors and data providers (e.g. researchers, agronomists, grower groups) are encouraged to publish their trial projects on OFT with technical support by the OFT team. All information and data submitted to OFT are fully controlled by the contributor/provider and can be edited as required. This includes the ability to embargo public access to trials information for a period of time stipulated by the data provider.
To enable entry of trial projects, fill out the Expression of Interest (EOI) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the EOI has been received, a member of the OFT team will provide further information and technical assistance for trial project entry.
