Mobile app now available for cover crop field guide

The Midwest Cover Crops Council (MCCC) has reformatted its popular field guide to create the Midwest Cover Crops Field Scout mobile app for cellphones and tablets. The app allows farmers, crop advisers and conservation professionals to access vital cover crop information from mobile devices.

“The app improves upon the printed pocket guide by providing useful links to more in-depth articles on many topics covered in the printed guide,” said Anna Morrow, MCCC program manager. “The digital version of the guide also provides additional photos beyond what’s found in the printed guide.”

Once downloaded, the content of the app will be available at any time on a mobile device. Internet connection will not be required to view cover crop information in the field.

The app is available for both iOS and Android devices with an annual subscription for $2.99. The subscription fee allows the MCCC to periodically update the app throughout the year with the latest available content.

Users will receive a renewal reminder when their subscription is nearing its end. Bulk purchase will be available for companies and field day organizers, allowing groups to offer free downloads at special events.

The app can be found by searching “cover crop” in either the App Store or Google Play, and direct links are available on the MCCC website at http://mccc.msu.edu/.

The development of this app was made possible by the Walton Family Foundation.
