EziApp is an Australian company, specialsing in mobile-device solutions for the Apple iPhone/iPad. Built by Farmers for the Farming Industry.
EziApp Agro and Spray are used by a growing number of Agronomists and Farmers to create and email paddock/field inspection reports whilst on the farm and have it distributed there and then.
The Back Paddock EziApp Import feature enables the electronic import of EziApp Agro and Spray Reports, to be stored against the farm and paddock in Back Paddock Adviser and Manager, as Paddock Diary (Actuals) events. The feature is in testing as part of the Spring 2012 Release Program.
An exciting development... Certain aspects of precision agriculture disciplines are making the migration to mainstream agronomic thinking. The correlation of yield-data and the integration of biomass imaging are two aspects emerging.
For a number of years the Australian grain industry has produced grain protein results below desired levels in a significant proportion of the wheat crop. This can have a negative impact on grower’s financial returns and in the longer term damage Australia’s position in premium, milling-quality export markets.
In keeping SoilMate aligned with scientific and industry standards it has been decided to align the reporting units for the major cations (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and aluminium) and effective cation exchange capacity (eCEC) with the standard units used by the research community for a number of years. This will see the universally used milliequivalent/100 g (meq/100g) replaced by the cmol(+)/kg. Fortunately this replacement is in name only and the critical levels that you may remember will remain unchanged as 1 meq/100g = 1 cmol(+)/kg as will the calculation of exchangeable cation percentages.
Over the last couple of months I have become involved in a discussion about the nitrogen response of the wheat variety EGA Gregory in relation to its yield and grain protein when compared to other similar varieties.
