One Soil Scouting
One Soil Scouting is a relatively new company that has been revolutionizing the world of field management with its rich selection of features. For instance, this app uses satellite monitoring and the NDVI vegetation index to provide information about crop development in your fields. This app also analyzes the NDVI vegetation index to divide each field into several zones that require differing amounts of fertilizer, so you can then use machinery that supports variable-rate application to spray your fields.
Farmers Edge is not just a farm management app. This company’s primary products are weather stations, remote soil sensors, and other hardware that collects information about the environment on your farm and compiles it in one place. At the same time, the Farmers Edge app analyzes this information, allowing agriculture professionals to make informed decisions based on all the collected information.

Their Trimble Ag Mobile app allows you to create records of agricultural procedures carried out on the fields year after year, monitor crops, track the location of all farm machinery in real time, track inventory, create field maps, and more.
