Crop Problems? There's An App For That
7:02am 18th October 2014
Want to help your crops grow better?
There is an app for that.
An application written by Cornish agriculture experts has won a top award.
The Farm Manure Management Application works out what you are using and what you are saving.
Becky helped design it and explains where the idea came from: "There was a bit of an issue with farmers valuing what was in their manure in terms of the nutrients that are there to help the plants to grow and also what that translates to in terms of its economic value, so what they can save on their fertiliser bills.
"In terms of techonology, farming is massively technical and there are huge amounts of advances going on in terms of things like precision farming, GPS systems on tractors, using - trying to grab all the data that's going on and actually make it into useful tools for farmers that'll help them make their business decisions."
