10 new mobile applications for precision farming

Workers in the agricultural sector could already appreciate the benefits of using various applications for smartphones. And at the moment it is precise agriculture is the sphere where application of such applications is very in demand. Today, their functionality allows not only to collect data and record the result of scanning growing cultures, but also to control the UAV, obtain data from them, monitor the state of the field equipment.

The number of different (including agricultural) applications available for installation on a smartphone is growing exponentially. In this article, we will try to consider the functional of those of them that have already proved themselves well (software that has been developed or modernized in 2017). We have to admit at once that in many cases we are not talking about cross-platform communication – some of the applications are available for the Apple platform, another – for Android and only a few work through the Web-interface.

The AGBRIDGE application, developed by Scruggs Equipment Co used to transfer data between various agricultural equipment and office computers. For data transfer, a standard USB port or Compact Flash Port is used. Available for devices on Android, iPhone, iPad.

Available for Android, iPad, iPhone.

3 application – «Farmobile Notes»

Application Farmobile Notes«Farmobile Notes» – This application is intended for obtaining data from the equipment on which EFR equipment (Electronic Field Records – electronic data recording from the field) is installed. This type of equipment is designed to collect data from agricultural machinery during work. In the normal mode, when moving across the field, all data coming from the sensors are transferred to the central database, only after that they are available for analysis. Which is not always convenient if you are in the cabin of technics in the midst of work. As already understood, to access this information right at the time of work, and created the application Farmobile Notes. Available for Android, iPad, iPhone.



4 application – «Pocket Drone Control»

Allows you to quickly determine the damage from the occurrence of meteorological events or the appearance of pests. To do this, connect the capabilities of the software, from the company Agrible, Morning Farm Report. This will allow you to even specify the requirements of the plants in fertilizes.

Additionally, Pocket Drone Control greatly simplifies the management of drones. You can set the territory for the survey and run the drone into flight by a few touches of the screen. After loading the photos of the field, you can immediately get a report on the type of problems in this field – hail, disease, flooding or drought. After uploading the data to the cloud, you can share it at any time. Available for iPad, iPhone.

5 application – «WineFlight Precision Ag»

Application WineFlight Precision AgThis application from UAV-IQ is designed to process data coming from UAVs, resulting in reduced losses, optimization of field processing costs, increased yield. When loading field survey results, places that need immediate processing, cultivation, selective harvesting are automatically marked. It is possible to compare the results of monitoring of the same place at different times. This allows you to effectively evaluate the results of previous treatments of this territory. The data from the field is not simply transformed into images, they are superimposed on real coordinates and are compared with GPS data. The existing data is available for later retrieval and stored as a data collection. Available for iPad.

6 application –«AgriXP» (renewal)

Application AgriXP (renewal)«AgriXP» (renewal) – This platform is designed to store data about the state of the field. The application allows the farmer, employee or consultant to receive information about all the actions performed on this field. Data can be exported to formats such as Excell, PDF, CVS. Time intervals of the changes made can be set in increments of a day, a week or a month. Data stored in the system is securely protected and is available only to authorized users. Web-based interface.

7 application – «FieldAlytics Explorer»

Application FieldAlytics Explorer«FieldAlytics Explorer» simplifies the storage and processing of field processing data and the results of agrochemical soil analysis. Simpler management of issued tasks, faster synchronization of data with the main database. The information becomes available immediately after the work is done without the need to transfer it through the central office. For the creation of cartograms, GPS services are used. Available for iPad.


8 application – «XTEND»

Application XTEND«XTEND» от Topcon Precision Agriculture this is a pretty unexpected solution carrying a dashboard with a built-in Topcon in-cab display on your gadget.

The data is continuously synchronized via the Wi-Fi channel with the on-board computer. Available for iPad, iPhone.


9 application – «Ceres Imaging»

Application Ceres Imaging«Ceres Imaging» is used to assess the degree of water stress of the plants, the need in nutrients, the uniformity of seedlings and other aspects related to crop growth. This application estimates the aerial photos of the territory and is suitable both for the evaluation of small areas and large ones. Images can be scaled for a more detailed study of individual sites. Available for iPad, iPhone.


10 application – «Taranis»

Application Taranis«Taranis» application is designed to control the level of infestation of the field by parasites. Based on the results of the pictures, the field finds «hot» places where human employees must be sent, whose task is to determine the cause of the change in the color of the plant mass on the spot. Data is saved and available for later analysis by an agronomist or other farm employee. Integration of data from rain sensors and traps is possible. Using of this application simplifies the work of the employees of the farm, reduces costs and increases yields. Web-based interface.
