Mobile Farm Manager can define soil grids and track the sample numbers from a phone or tablet. By using a boundary already saved to the device, users can quickly and easily define the parameters in which they would like to pull soil samples. By using the global positioning system (GPS) on the phone or tablet, users can easily see when they have reached new sampling zones and identify from where they took samples.
Mobile Farm Manager also allows either automatically incrementing sample numbers or user-defined sample characters that can be written on the bag so that results from the soil testing lab can be easily associated to the appropriate sampled area. The soil sampling data can be transferred to Apex™ software to review the results.
