How about managing your farm operation from your iPad or Iphone? John Deere plans to make that happen later this year. Tyler Hogrefe, seen here being interviewed by Ken Anderson, Brownfield Ag News, is a Product Manager for John Deere in their Intelligent Solutions Group. He was a presenter at their FarmSight Tech Summit. I spoke to him about John Deere Mobile Farm Manager.
Tyler says the need for more data is increasing and it is very useful in the office but also in the field. That’s why John Deere will be releasing the Mobile Farm Manager App later this year which will be integrated into the iPad and iPhone platform with future platforms planned. The cost of the app is yet to be determined and there are a number of applications that it will work with also still in the planning stages.
