Cropstream, a new communication network built for agriculture, announces the release of a free crop registry app that allows growers to share their crop trait information with other farmers, agronomists and applicators from their computer browser. Additionally, a mobile app allows users to view nearby crop technology traits to help manage the federal dicamba requirement of consulting a sensitive crop registry before spraying.
Cropstream is a free cloud-based service built to facilitate better communications between growers, seed dealers, ag retailers and manufacturers. Cropstream displays posted crop traits on a map from either a browser or a smart phone for crop registry purposes.
“Cropstream lets growers quickly and easily share information about their crops. In less than one minute, growers can mark their field on a map and post information about the seed traits in their crops,” says Cropstream president Tim Aughenbaugh. “Cropstream’s database of over 10,000 seed varieties make posting traits as simple as selecting the brand and hybrid/variety planted and confirming the trait. It protects your information by sharing only the trait, not the seed variety itself, and allows you to turn sharing on and off whenever desired.”
Headquartered in De Smet, SD, Cropstream is an independent agricultural technology provider focused on improving communication and sharing information to meet today’s crop production needs.
