Using FarmLogs in the Office, Cab, or Truck

November 30, 2017

When you think of precision ag technology, one of the first things to come to mind is how difficult it is to use. Many programs require a dedicated device or operating platform, meaning you have to juggle multiple devices to see what is going on across your farm. This isn’t the case with FarmLogs—we’re here to create easy-to-use technology that helps you run a more efficient and profitable business. That’s why we’ve designed our platform to be easily accessible from your office, cab, or truck!

FarmLogs in the cab

Have you ever been in the office at the end of a long day of field work trying to record everything you did for the day?

With the FarmLogs mobile app, you can create and edit records on the go and access key information about your farm.

FarmLogs in the truck

Do you know your cost of production for soybeans? What’s happening with the markets today? How much have you delivered on your December corn contract or how much do you still have to deliver to fulfill it? These are questions that might pop into your head at the most inopportune times like when you’re walking out of the implement dealer or leaving the grain elevator. With the FarmLogs mobile app, you can spend less time looking for that information.
