Today’s farming routinely incorporates technology into its practices. In the last decade, great strides have been made in order to help farmers manage their work and time. With bigger installations such as GPS units to robotic milking parlours making an impact, it is also smaller installations like a farming app on a smart phone that can be of great benefit to farmers.
