Digital Tools for Planting Season

There are many posts on a variety of topics related to digital agriculture on our website! Specifically as we head into the spring planting season, we think these might be particularly useful to you:

  • Search a listing of more than 500 agricultural applications (apps) you can download and use on your phone, tablet or desktop computer. More quickly find that tool you need or want. 
  • The FREE Purdue Crop Planner is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that allows you to easily plan by the field and sum supplies over your own entire farming operation. It will help you evaluate management decisions. 
  • The CONTxT app allows you to collect data regarding field operations that is critical for record-keeping AND store it in one central file that is easily accessed. Your data lands in your own GoogleSheet.
