FarmLogs, an agricultural tech startup that helps farmers plan, manage and analyze farm operations, has launched mobile apps for Android and iOS devices.

The apps allow farmers to log records as they work in the field, in the shop or elsewhere.

Field activities such as planting, fertilizing and harvesting can be quickly logged and tracked from the GPS-enabled mobile apps, which are available for free download in iTunes and in the Google Play store.

Multiple team members can track activities and make updates in real time. Additional app features will be rolled out later this year.

“The widespread adoption of mobile smart phones and tablets has created new opportunities in agriculture,” said Jesse Vollmar, CEO and co-founder of FarmLogs.

“FarmLogs leverages this change by helping farmers improve their farm’s financial performance through technology.”

The company is also marking the launch of a new mapping tool by giving customers a complimentary poster-sized, custom-printed farm map.

Users can create a free trial account on the company's website, enter fields and boundaries with the FarmLogs mapping tool and then redeem their free farm poster.  FG
