The Precision Farming app, launched publicly last Wednesday at National Fieldays, allows farmers who have their properties mapped with the Precision Tracking system download their farm map onto an Android tablet or iPad and then use information from that map to better manage their fertiliser and nutrient application.
The application also has guidelines set up to help the farmer keep
the tractor running straight.
Information from each session in the tractor gets uploaded to the Precision Tracking cloud to ensure the data stays safe.
Precision Tracking commercial manager Tim Yellowlees says the application has been in the works for the last six months and will have backing from a number of other applications.
“Farmers will be able to get free updates through iTunes or the Google Play store,” says Yellowlees. “We are also working with Bad Elf, who offer tools to improve the accuracy of GPS on tablets.”
Yellowlees says there is a great deal of excitement about this product. “Most farmers we have talked to are exited about the iPad app.”
