Farm Progress introduces app for iPhone and Android

Published on .

St. Charles, Ill.—Agricultural media company Farm Progress has launched the Farm Progress Growing Degree Days app. The free app, which is available at Android Market and the Apple App Store, is compatible with iPhone and Android smartphones.

A “growing degree day” is a measurement of local temperature a plant is exposed to in a growing season, which can help predict crop maturity. Farm Progress' app generates data for locations in the continental U.S. The app updates statistics daily and provides comparisons to the previous year.

Farm Progress worked with Omaha, Neb.-based iNet Solutions Group to develop the app.
