Kenai Rugged Tablet Now Available

The Kenai tablet is ideal for agronomists and farmers who need a rugged large screen tablet for outside agriculture applications.  The built-in GPS is ideal for soil sampling, basic mapping, and scouting tasks when using the Farm Works Mobile software.  Its fully-rugged design is tough enough to last for years, even in harsh conditions.  In addition to standard USB ports, it comes with an RS 232 Serial Port that allows it to connect to many other agricultural GPS receivers on the market today.

Field App Ranks Top 10 in CropLife

March 31, 2016 - The Connected Farm Field app, compatible with Farm Works Software®, received quite the praise from CropLife Magazine.  Of all the apps available in agriculture for 2016, the Connected Farm™ Field app ranked in the Top 10 in terms of productivity.

Consider in 2010 there was a “meager” 300,000 mobile apps in the Apple App Store, according to Statista Inc. That number mushroomed to 1.5 million apps in 2015 — a whopping 400% increase in just five years.

And the incredible volume of mobile apps has poured over into agriculture. With the number of farming apps available in leading app stores growing exponentially, it’s become next to impossible to successfully wade through the latest options that are helping make work more productive for ag professionals.

Where do you start?  Utilize the Farm Works™ Maze Kit by taking your design (such as an image from a maze designer) and easily geo-reference it using simple mapping tools on your desktop computer.  Next, take your image to the field on a mobile computer and start cutting the design using GPS.  Farm Works offers a variety of mobile computers that provide different levels of GPS accuracy.  The Trimble® Juno® T41 "G" series handheld is a high performance integrated GPS solution that offers repeatable 1-2 meter accuracy in the palm of your hand - a perfect partner for cutting corn mazes.
