AGNERDS – Episode ll Part 2 – Farmers Love iPads

The Ipad is one of those little pieces of technology that is really carving out its place in the wide world of tech. Its portability and its functionality are two of the biggest parts of its success. Those aspects are also reasons why it has been so well received in the farming community. The intuitive nature of the product fits both the old “set in his ways” farmer to the youngest of the new generation. More and more the farmer needs access to his information wherever he goes.

  • it was the device of the year at farm shows
  • how farmers are using non-ag apps for agriculture purposes
