Free agTools designed to help farmers get more yield potential from technology were unveiled in Boone, Iowa at the Farm Progress Show Wednesday. The tools include a suite of mobile applications that deliver commodities, weather radar maps, exclusive agronomic information, industry news, grain elevator pricing and more to farmers’ tablets and smartphones. DEKALB Brand Manager Rick Myroup says the Asgrow, DEKALB and Deltapine brands are committed to innovation inside and outside of the seed bag and have launched this exciting lineup of agTools to provide customized information to meet their customer’s specific needs, when they need it.
The agTool agSeedSelect lets farmers create, store, e-mail and print a seed guide tailored to their specific geography and crops. It also allows farmers and dealers to create a record of those products specific for the operation and features videos of agronomists providing detailed information about top Asgrow soybean, DEKALB corn and Deltapine cotton products. agIndex is a dashboard app that provides commodity updates, exclusive agronomic information, weather with radar maps and industry news. Farmers can set weather, commodity and insect alerts based on their location and crop portfolio. With agExchange – farmers can plan their grain marketing and determine the best time and place to sell their inventory. Farmers can plan mileage costs into their ROI and maintain transaction records in one convenient place. Weed Manager PLUS delivers accurate, region-specific weed management recommendations, a tank-mixing tool, videos outlining best management practices and a measurement conversion calculator.
Farmers attending the Farm Progress Show can actually get the apps downloaded to their devices, speak to the experts or get hands-on experience at the agCentral display in Asgrow and DEKALB tent number 852. They are also available at agToolCenter dot com (https://agToolCenter.com), the Apple App store or the Google Play store.
