Agworld announced that it is developing an app for the Apple Watch in response to the growing demand for a new breed of field-ready, connected apps.
Agworld’s centralized software platform, available as web, iPad and iPhone apps, allows for real-time collaboration and management of critical information, activities and recommendations throughout the crop production cycle – in field, where it matters most. Agworld is currently used by more than 17,000 growers and consultants in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Chile.
Agworld brings together the whole pre to post season farming workflow in one place with its features such as:
- Pre-season crop planning and budgeting tool
- Browsing farm data geospatially from the map
- Writing recommendations in under 30 seconds, infield and offline
- Financial and crop performance reporting
- Streamlining scouting workflow and flexible scouting templates
Agworld’s Apple watch app will be an extension of the platform’s key functionality in order to deliver contextual information at a glance. This includes:
Agronomic snapshot and crop history of the current field you’re standing in; Financial snapshot for users who have permission to view farm financials; Project Management; Notifications when your agronomist has sent you a new field recommendation or when your applicator has just completed a job; Safety and compliance; Know whether your field is safe to enter and clear for harvest.
