In the next few weeks leading up to the InfoAg Conference in St. Louis, MO, we’ll be featuring interviews with some of our sponsors to give you a preview of what they’ll have on display. So, I thought I’d start with the sponsor of the AgWired App, iCropTrak.
Aaron Hutchinson talked with me about their introduction of Version 5 of this mobile farm management platform. For starters he says they heard from customers that they would run into difficulty trying to load or download big files while out in the field with a poor network connection. So this new version uses the processing power of the iPad without that connection. Some other features include a Management Zone Builder allowing you to work with multiple layers of data; Zone Correlations Tools that “are designed to assist our customers with determining data relevance by providing numerical, spatial, and graphical descriptions of the correlation between your Zone Builder layers so you can easily understand which ones are influencing your production and which ones are just big data getting in your way;” Rapid Scouting and the ability to create reports using Microsoft programs like Word and Excel and print them directly from the app. Aaron says you can find iCropTrak at InfoAg in booth 8 and he urges you come by and be prepared to be amazed at what you can do on an iPad.
