Scout for weeds with new mobile app

RSS

Now that crops have emerged, farmers are heading back out to the fields to scout for weeds. As you scout, why not let your smartphone do some of the work? Using the Ag Weed ID mobile app, you can ID weeds on the spot using photos and get control tips. 

Ag Weed ID is available, and FREE, for iPhone and Android. Users select from a variety of inputs to narrow their search, including: season, location, crop and weed type. Results offer weed names that can be narrowed down. 

For example, searching for June, Minnesota, soybeans and broadleaf weeds, results show 21 weeds and 63 photos. Users can remove certain weeds from the results if they're sure those aren't in question. Then you can scroll through the photos. When results match what's in your field, you tap, "That's it!"

On the chosen weed page, users are offered a threat level, resistance profile, control timing and some additional information. The whole page can be bookmarked in the app, emailed or sent to Facebook or Twitter. 

Another option in the Ag Weed ID app is to compare images. Users can take a photo of the weed in their field to compare to the image database. 

So, download the app, use it and let us know what you think. Is it useful? Are there other details you'd like to see? Comment below and let us know your thoughts!
