App Pinpoints Problems in the Field

Posted: Updated:

In a world filled with technology, we see many apps. Not many of them can say that they pinpoint problem areas of wide-spread farming fields.

 The R-7 tool was presented by Windfield at the opening day of the KMOT Ag Expo.

It's a precision agriculture tool helping farmers put the right imput on the right acre.

A satellite image will be able to be used during crop season to identify problem areas in the field.

 What we can catch with the in season imagery is nutrient deficiency, insect pressure and any diseases that might be happening. You'll be able to see them without actually having to go out there and look at it," says R7 specialist Chris Heidrich.

 The app is especially helpful for farmers with new land, who might not know the variability of their field.

If you're interested, head to your local co-op which sells Windfield products.
