Smartphone Apps for Growers

Applications or apps for smartphones are ubiquitous and now there are hundreds of them for growers, gardeners and horticulturists.

 Dr.Saraswat
  Dharmendra Saraswat, asst professor and Extension engineer for biological and agricultural engineering at U. Arkansas developed a site where you can search for smartphone apps.



Go to the link below
* select type (Apple ios, Android, Windows 7, Blackberry)
* price you are willing to pay for the app (free to more than $3.99)
* topic of interest (drop down menu topics from agriculture to weeds)

The link to Saraswat's Geospatial Technologies is
http://baegrisk.ddns.uark.edu/geospatial/

At that link, click on Geospatial Resources
When that window opens, click on Calculator and Tools
Scroll down to Smart Phone Apps Search Tool
or follow this link if if works for you

Most categories have only a few apps in them but they look like they were selected for being useful.
