John Deere's Farm Manager program includes the ability to use field maps, historical reports, GPS tracking, field navigation and soil sampling grids for quick and accurate agronomic decision making. Now those abilities are available for iPhones and iPads through the company's Mobile Farm Manager application.
The free app is available at the Apple Store and is designed to connect to the customer's Apex farm management software.
The program also allows customers to share agronomic information with ag service providers, farm managers and other advisors as needed.
Tyler Hogrefe, product marketing manager for Deere's Intelligent Solutions Group, says Mobile Farm Manager is the latest in a growing suite of tech products under John Deere's FarmSight strategy.
