While weed and pest management remains a priority for growers across the country, the latest and most comprehensive crop protection technologies are not cheap to purchase or implement, and many growers have begun to question whether or not it’s going to be possible to see returns on the costs associated with seed treatments, especially with prices remaining so low.

Shawn Conley , State Soybean and Small Grains Specialist from my home state of Wisconsin , spoke during the Bayer #AgVocacy Forum on the many reasons why crop protection is an investment worth spending and what growers could stand to lose financially without a strong investment in weed management.

“Even at eight dollar beans we’re seeing a seventy percent probability of return on investment (ROI) from utilizing seed treatments,” he said in an interview during the Forum. “It’s an opportunity for growers to possibly cut back on their seeding rate, save some dollars there, and re-invest those in seed treatments and multiple modes of action to deal with the glyphosate resistant weed problem we have in Wisconsin.”

Our appetite for downloading mobile apps is staggering, and there appears to be no slowdown in sight. In fact, iOS app downloads could exceed 100 million per day by 2017, according to mobile analyst Horace Dediu.

This download frenzy has also had a huge impact on agriculture, with mobile app stores now overflowing with applications specific to our industry . But for every useful app, there are likely several that will be abandoned after one use. Consider 53% of ag retailers say they are using less than 20% of the total number of agriculture-related apps they’ve ever downloaded on their tablets on “at least a weekly basis,” according to a recent CropLife Media Group study.

Requires installing random apps or paying $2 a month ; No control over home screen apps ; Lacks full Android interface; Buggy features ; Laggy performance

BlueStacks lets you run Android apps on your PC but it suffers from poor performance and a pushy, sales-oriented interface.

You don't need an Android device to run Android apps. A freemium Windows app, BlueStacks can run popular games and apps such as Candy Crush Saga and WhatsApp Messenger while you work in Microsoft Office in another window. Though it's one of the most popular Android emulators, the software is heavily focused on selling apps, even requiring you to pay a $2 monthly fee if you choose not to install titles from BlueStacks' partners. Poor performance, buggy features and an annoying interface also hold BlueStacks back.
