So many apps, so little time—which agricultural apps are worth the investment?

Join us at the 2019 Agriculture Innovation Day “There’s an Ag App for That” session to learn about agricultural apps that are worth your time.

Agricultural app use

With thousands of apps available for mobile devices that help manage nearly every aspect of an agricultural operation, farmers want to know which ones are worth their time. In the “There’s an Ag App for That” session at the 2019 Michigan State University Agriculture Innovation Day, participants will learn about several top-rated apps for mobile devices and see a real-time demonstration of a field-based application.

Topics such as weed and disease identification will also be highlighted. We will share our recommendations on several useful free apps as well as fee-based ones available for both iOS and Android devices. Attendees will go home with some suggestions for apps, an understanding of how to evaluate apps and a better understanding of how to use a selection of apps.
