Hard to believe its been almost 2 years since we first did a blog on Smart phones apps for farmers.
We have another addition:
This app is a comprehensive collection of crop nutrient deficiency photos. A range of nutrient deficiency examples are provided for 14 prominent crops. Text and diagrammatic descriptions are also provided.
While we think this app is great and can help you diagnose a problem, we highly suggest soil testing and making sure you are fertilizing for the most deficient nutrients. Did you know that some nutrients can take up to two weeks before a visible deficiency occurs? It can take another two weeks to correct the deficiency. That whole time you are losing yield you can never recover.
Even worse you can have nutrient deficiency that are not severe enough to show visual signs. Give us a call or send us your soil test we can help you sort it out before yield robbing visual signs occur!
Do you have other apps not on this list you can't live without, let us know and we'll add them to the list!!
