Favorite ag apps

Here’s our collection of favorite apps and reviews of apps that can be used in agriculture, as featured at the Conservation Technology & Tillage Conference, March 2015. And remember, there are no manuals for apps. The best troubleshooting is peers, You Tube or “googling it.”

Kansas State University has grouped apps into nine Categories:

1. ID Apps: For identification purposes (weeds, insects, diseases, and nutrients)

2. CALC Apps: For calculating purposes (nutrient removal calculations, tank mixes, volume to spray, etc.)

3. ECON Apps: For checking grain prices, market evolutions, fertilizer price trends, news and finances.

4. SCOUT Apps: For scouting purposes or for geo-positioning (soil sampling, recording notes, soil types, etc.).

5. GUIDE Apps: For diagnosing crop production issues in the field, primarily related to field guides (crop management: insect, disease, weed, and more).

6. LIVESTOCK Apps: Apps related to the animal side, nutrition, health, and information on markets.

7. MACHINERY Apps: Apps for associated with agricultural equipment preparation, inventory, providing information of the machine.

8. GAG Apps: GAG (general Ag-Apps) for general use, weather-related, for meetings, for reading magazines, among several other Apps’ properties.

9. NON-AG Apps: For general use from e-readers to calculators, email, calendar, picture editing, and more.

All of the KSU Apps in each Classification are listed. Here are the ones we chose to highlight:

  • Weed ID by University of Missouri
  • IPM Toolkit by University of Wisconsin
  • TankMix by Dupont
  • Manure Valuator by University of Arkansas
  • Planting Population from Ag PhD
