Monsanto introduces new weed ID app
By Top Crop Manager
Apr. 28, 2014 - Monsanto has released the Weed ID App, an app that hosts a library of more than 48 weeds, each accompanied by high-resolution images and detailed descriptions. It uses characteristics like growth stage, shape and colour to categorize each weed and narrow search results.
The "Map It" section on the app uses GPS coordinates to map and track weed pressures. This 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 technical support line.
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. Learn more.
