Happy to report we participated as Team GreenThumb at the 2nd AppsForAg‬ hackathon, and received the 3rd place award — maybe third time will be the charm, so look out for us at the upcoming 3rd AppsForAg hackathon in March (if we don’t release a product before then 🙂

Our hackathon project GreenThumb was a mobile app to assign and verify common field tasks like applying fertilizers/pesticides, soil/tissue sampling, irrigation, etc, and build a database of these events to enable historical data analytics. This significantly improves communication among crop advisors, growers, and foremen, re-inforces safety/security requirements, and improves productivity by cutting down hours for record-keeping, while enabling field-level analytics for increasing yield.
