Streamlining Collaboration in Agriculture with FigJam by Figma

As the Pacific Seed Association continues to innovate in the agricultural sector, tools like FigJam by Figma are becoming invaluable for fostering collaboration and creativity within our community. FigJam is an online whiteboard designed to facilitate seamless teamwork, regardless of physical location. Here's how this tool can empower our teams and members.

What Can FigJam Help You With?

FigJam is ideal for brainstorming, planning, and project mapping. Its user-friendly interface allows teams to collaborate in real-time, creating flowcharts, mind maps, and diagrams, which are essential for visualizing complex agricultural projects and processes. Whether organizing crop rotation schedules, planning seasonal tasks, or strategizing market approaches, FigJam makes these tasks intuitive and interactive.

FigJam by Figma can create a variety of interactive and collaborative diagrams, such as mind maps, flowcharts, and wireframes. For example, in an agricultural context, you could use FigJam to design a detailed workflow for crop rotation planning or create a visual map of a farm's soil health data. These visuals can be created in a collaborative space where team members can add comments, use sticky notes, and even conduct voting sessions to make decisions collectively. This makes it an excellent tool for teams to visualize data and processes together in real time.

Free vs. Paid Subscription

Free Version: FigJam offers a free version that includes basic features such as drawing, voice chat, and sticky notes, which are perfect for small teams or casual meetings.

Premium Version: The paid subscription integrates more deeply with Figma’s design platform and provides advanced tools like unlimited boards, high-fidelity design functionalities, and enhanced security options. This version is suited for larger teams that require more robust features for detailed project planning and execution.

Things to Be Aware Of

While FigJam offers robust tools for collaboration, there are several factors to consider:

  • Internet Connectivity: Real-time collaboration requires a stable internet connection, which can be a challenge in rural or remote agricultural areas.

  • Learning Curve: New users might need some time to get accustomed to the interface and features to fully utilize its capabilities.

  • Data Management: Be mindful of how data is shared and managed within the tool, especially when dealing with sensitive or proprietary information.


For the Pacific Seed Association, FigJam presents a unique opportunity to enhance our collaborative efforts, bridging the gap between field and office. By leveraging this tool, we can increase our productivity and bring more coherence to our projects. As we adopt more digital tools like FigJam, our commitment to innovation and community building in agriculture continues to grow.
