There's an app for everything these days, and the world of agriculture is no different. Whether you’re using an Apple or an Android phone, there are countless apps available to download to your smart devices that will save you precious time, energy and money, and help you to get the most out of your farming endeavours.


See below for a list of apps that the most tech-savvy farmers around Australia are using today.


Agworld

Agworld is a collection of agronomists who are dedicated to providing farmers with all of the latest news and information about what’s happening across the agricultural industry. Through the Agworld app, farmers and agronomists can conveniently communicate and share information with each other, and farmers can ask for assistance in real time. The app can also be used as a mapping tool for keeping track of crop rotations, pest burdens and more.


APVMA

APVMA stands for the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority, a body that has developed an app that instantly provides information about registered agricultural and veterinary chemicals in Australia. All users have to do is type in the name of a product and the app will generate the label, providing information about such things as active ingredients, withholding periods and pack sizes.


Weatherzone

Never be caught unawares ever again. Using a combination of information provided by the Bureau of Meteorology and Weatherzone meteorologists, the app provides accurate weather forecasts to users. Although it can be used for anyone, it is particularly popular among farmers because of it allows them to see an in-depth report of what kind of weather they are in for locally.


FeralScan

If you have an issue with pest animals, you’re probably not alone. FeralScan allows you to log information about pest animals that can be seen by local community groups, pest controllers and the local government, helping people in the area develop a co-ordinated solution to managing pest animals.


TractorPal

TractorPal is a handy app that allows you to keep your inventory and maintenance records for your agricultural machinery in one handy place. This includes cars, trucks, tractors, lawn mowers and more. You can refer to the app to see when you last did things like changing oil or making repairs, and be aware of when your equipment is due for service.
