Connected Farm

Price: Free

Trimble’s Connected Farm app uses a smartphone's GPS for mapping field boundaries, locating irrigation pivots, marking flags, and entering scouting information for points, lines, and polygon areas. Scouting attributes include an extensive list of weeds, insects and diseases, and allows users to log the severity of a problem, crop conditions, and more. Photos can be captured and integrated with scouting attributes. 

The Connected Farm app is also compatible with Trimble’s GreenSeeker handheld crop sensor. Start by entering NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) readings from the handheld so that the app can automatically calculate the rate of Nitrogen. The geo-referenced location of the NDVI point is also saved in the app.

All data is sent via the cell or WI-FI connection to Connected Farm ( where you can view, sort, and print data online. The app is also compatible with Farm Works Software.
