"The farming landscape is changing and Monsanto aims to provide innovative solutions to help farmers adapt to this change," says Jenna Book, crop protection marketing manager, in describing the value of giving farmers information right at their fingertips. "And the Weed ID App is an easy-to-use, informative tool that farmers can use every day to support their weed management strategy."
The "Map It" section on the app uses GPS coordinates to map and track weed pressures. This innovative technology lets farmers save key historical information and identify year-over-year, on-farm trends. If the weed remains unidentifiable, the app directly links the farmer to a Monsanto agronomist and Monsanto's CustomCare(R) technical support line.
The introduction of the Weed ID App is also consistent with Monsanto Canada's commitment to provide sound agronomic recommendations, education and information to help support good weed management practices and solutions," said Book.
The Weed ID App is available for download from the App Store and is iOS and Android compatible. The app is available in both English and French.
