Cloud-Based Software Helps Farmers on the Ground

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

Producers already use the software for many purposes. For example, many citrus growers want to take inventory of their trees, including the size of each tree. Gathering this data normally requires farmers to manually count trees and measure them. The software streamlines that process. They can also use the software to see which parts of their fields – or which fruit varieties -- perform better.
