It looks like the Android app market is beginning to see some agricultural applications.

PureSense Environmental Inc. announced today that its Irrigation Manager(TM) Android application is now available through the Android Market.

The PureSense app allows growers to monitor their real-time field conditions and irrigation activity from their Android phones. Monitoring stations placed throughout growers’ fields send data through the internet every fifteen minutes and the PureSense Android application allows the grower to access that information in the field. Using the “offline sync” feature, the data becomes available on the Android phone even when the grower enters an area without cellular signal.

Bryan Alessini, Ranch Manager with F&M Oberti Inc monitors 1500 acres of almond and olive crops with PureSense. Alessini was a beta tester for the Irrigation Manager Android app. Alessini found flexibility a key advantage of the new app. “The new Android app has really given us added flexibility in monitoring not only our field moisture, but also the climate readings our PureSense systems deliver,” said Alessini. “It has been a dependable app and makes it so I don’t have to be near a computer.” PureSense has plans to release additional apps for various platforms in the coming months.
