The increased presence of technology in the agricultural sector has eased many operations for people who have used farm equipment, as new applications like John Deere Mobile Weather provide users with a new tool to increase productivity.
According to AgWired, the introduction of John Deere Mobile Weather ensures that private and commercial applicators will be given precise weather information in order to make proper product application and other decisions related to precipitation and climate.
Janae Tapper, a product manager for John Deere, noted that the mobile weather application helps to constantly update users on the forecast for their area. The beauty of the product comes from the fact that operators no longer have to rely on handheld devices or make multiple stops to manually look at the conditions.
According to the news outlet, this is especially helpful for people who are on the move, as they can apply products to their crops and soil without stopping.
It also helps to improve recordkeeping for farmers, as it allows them to document the specific weather conditions during the application of their products.
