Best Agriculture Apps Available

There are suggestions that the app stores are getting crowded and there are plenty of those that are of not any use. In an attempt to weed out those, last year Google removed more than 60,000 apps that were not up to the mark when it came to quality and usability.

While this might be a good news for all the users this is a warning that the providers need to be more careful.

Here are some apps that help the farmers to keep up with the schedule and help increase the output and profit. With the ever improving technology there is a need to gain knowledge and learn the best available practices.

 

Great Lakes Early Detection Network

 



Now you can submit invasive species observations directly with your smartphone from the field by using the Great Lakes Early Detection Network (GLEDN) app. These reports are uploaded to EDDMapS and e-mailed directly to local and state verifiers for review. Developed by the University of Georgia’s Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health, GLEDN has several new features in Version 2.0, including new navigation, ability to draw shapes on maps for infested area and reporting of negative data to track eradications.


Agrivi

 


Based on best-practice production processes for more than 60 crops, Agrivi app guides farmers to improve their production and increase productivity. Its features include project-oriented farm management with a simple and fast way of planning, monitoring and tracking all farm activities and inputs usage, advance sales and expense tracking ensures taking control over farm finances, inventory management with low inventory alarms removes delays in production caused by lack of inputs and weather monitoring with detailed 7-day weather forecast and 3-year weather history for each field and smart disease risk detection alarms. 



TractorPal

 


This app keeps inventory and maintenance records for all your personal agriculture machines and attachments, including cars and trucks of all brands. TractorPal enables you to log all of your large and small machinery and automobiles including tractors, pickups, lawn mowers, cars, combines, sprayers, loaders, skid-loaders, backhoes, attachments, and more. You can also record each item’s maintenance (e.g., changing oil, filters, tires, and irregular repairs), and will remind you when service is required.



MachineryGuide

 


You can use your tablet or smartphone as a precision tractor GPS system using the MachineryGuide app. It’s one of the first guidance software programs that functions as a precision farming application using an antenna. These antennas are capable of receiving and processing free corrections (e.g., EGNOS, WAAS). It can be used for any farming activity which is done by tractor or other agricultural machinery, including fertilization, manure application and spraying. It even can be used for land measurements as well.
