A product of
the University of Wisconsin Integrated Pest Management Tools,
BeanCam assists farmers and growers by calculating "plant stand" or plant population,
by averaging five plant count samples randomly taken within a soybean field at the
VC, V1 or V2 growth stage. BeanCam uses this imagery to calculate an expected percent yield at harvest with and without spring replanting.
Viewed as an advanced agricultural tool,
ImageIT, through technology and imagery analysis, converts the grower's phone into a tool to assess plant nitrogen uptake and generates recommendations on any perceived nitrogen deficiencies.
Developed at the Oklahoma State University App Center, Canopeo is a mobile application that allows farmers to track the growth of crops by calculating fractional green canopy cover or FGCC for any crop.
Available in the App Store and as a web-based application for Android users, SoilWeb is an application, developed at the UC Davis California Soil Resource Lab in collaboration with the
