Explanation:
"Green field" refers to a completely new installation, as opposed to building on an already existing one. In other words, one where you are starting "desde cero". Here are some examples that explain it.

The "dot coms"--the new ISPs--are green-field companies with no legacy infrastructure. http://www.xchangemag.com/articles/051grill.html

In a "green field" environment (such as a new building that has no infrastructure yet), http://www.lantimes.com/97/97dec/712a057a.html

So it refers to a "primera implantación" or a "nueva implantación", such as in the following text:

Y claro estos procesos de primera
implantación son significativamente distintos a los de
hace años, “ahora cuando a un departamento de sistemas de
cualquier empresa de tamaño mediano grande le encargan
que busque una plataforma corporativa, la primera fase que
suele abordarse es la de definición de la solución de la plataforma, y aquí dado que es una tecnología nueva para muchos
de ellos (http://www.ieci.es/pdf/informe_computerworld 2001.pdf)

Hope it helps.
