August 29, 2016
With continuous technology advancements, production agriculture is more efficient and mobile than ever before.
As part of The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation's focus on advancing agriculture, the organization has released a new app called "Ag Tools." The app will provide agricultural producers and land managers with calculators and utilities to help crunch numbers and gain information when making management decisions. Calculation topics include beef cattle, grazing, wildlife and fisheries, pecan trees, sprayer calibration and fertilization.
"We wanted to create an app that would provide more information for farmers and ranchers, giving them the ability to make better-informed management decisions out in the field," said Bryan Nichols, Noble Foundation livestock consultant. "We chose the calculators that best fit the common situations producers encounter on a daily basis."
The app is available for free download through the Apple (App Store direct link) and Android (Google Play direct link) app stores. The calculators are also available in a desktop version online at www.noble.org/ag/tools.
Calculators currently available in the app are:
* Body Condition Score Change;
* Breeding Season;
* Calving Season;
* Frame Score;
* Lime Application;
* Pond Fish Stocking;
* Pearson Square Ration Balancing, and
* Value of Gain.
More calculators will be added in the future.
