If you mention powerful farming tools to most people, they will think of tractors or combines. But the smart phone is becoming an important part of every farmer’s tool kit and new software applications or APPS are making those phones even more useful.
“Farmers are rapidly adopting mobile apps for everything from checking futures market prices, creating production records and searching for used farm machinery ,” said Darren Marsland, Vice President Technology at Farms.com Ltd. “Producers like the apps because they can access information set up for the smartphones or tablets and from anywhere on the farm.”

To help farmers find some of the new agriculture apps, Farms.com has created an extensive online directory of agri apps which are listed in categories and with a description. To visit the Farms.com App Directory and find the apps to help you on your farm go to http://www.farms.com/agriculture-apps/

A couple of the popular free apps include the Farms.com Used Farm Equipment App, which is powerful search engine to help farmers find a specific piece of used farm machinery and the AgCareers.com Job Search App.
Some of the best apps available are for futures market prices, news and weather, weed identification, nutrient removal by crop, planting population calculator, drainage tile calculator, and more. Visit Farms.com and click on the Agriculture Apps link and you can find the growing directory with information on each app. Reply With Quote
