Launched in 2014, FarmApp is a Columbian-Australian food production management platform. Accessible online and via the iOS and Android mobile applications, FarmApp developed an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) software-based service specifically targeted for the monitoring of crop yields. The software consists of geo-referenced scouting and fumigation apps along with sensors, helping bring automated Internet of Things (IoT) devices to the traditionally outdated agricultural sector. By utilizing Farmapp, farmers can automate their greenhouses in order to receive IPM-tailored insights and visualizations straight to their devices, thereby increasing efficiency of crop monitoring. The platform also allows farmers to keep a spray diary, in which they receive guided help in order to understand where and how fertilizers and agricultural chemicals should be applied given their crops. While comprehensive as a farm management tool, users must have access to the internet and proper devices in order to access Farmapp. By providing over farms on three different continents with quality analytics, Farmapp helps ensure a thriving crop through the optimization of IPM given specific conditions within any given greenhouse.
