iPhone application available for weeds and grazing recordkeeping
December 10, 2010
BROOKINGS, SD – The South Dakota Cooperative Extension Service has developed two new applications that owners of iPhones or iPod Touch devices can download and use.
The applications, or apps, include “South Dakota Rangeland and Pasture Grazing Records,” and “Noxious Weeds of South Dakota.” Staff from South Dakota State University’s AgBio Communications Unit developed and published the apps.
The grazing records app was designed to help ranchers and grassland managers keep accurate records of grazing use and to keep track of changing conditions in pastures and rangeland. The noxious weeds app features an easy-to-use guide for both statewide and locally noxious weeds, and it can help landowners identify the species of weeds.
Both of these free apps are available for download on Apple’s iTunes Store. The download for the Noxious Weeds app is available at this link: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=405068319&mt=8. To download the grazing records app, go to this link: http://itunes.apple.com/app/sdces-grazing-records/id405063891?mt=8.
Both applications were designed with the help of Extension experts in the fields of weed identification and rangeland management. For more information on the apps, call AgBio Communications Unit information officer Terry Molengraaf at 605-688-4180.
