Sporebuster, just released
When a fungicide application is needed to control white mold in soybeans, Sporebuster can help determine a profitable program. You enter your expected soybean price, expected yield, and treatment cost. Sporebuster instantly compares ten different treatment plans at once to determine average net gain and breakeven probability of each. You can mark, save and share by email, the best plans for your farming operation.
The Manure Tracker app allows you to record manure applications on a field by field basis. By creating a list of FIELD names specific to your farm, each manure application is saved to your smartphone and can be sent as a .csv file to an email address for further record management and safe keeping.

Wisconsin’s Corn N Rate Calculator
The MRTN guidelines are designed to assist producers in selecting an N rate that improves profitability when N and corn prices fluctuate. Maximum return to N (MRTN) is the N rate that will be most profitable for a particular N:Corn ratio. The MRTN rate is the LARGE number expressed in lbs N/acre (total to apply) including N in starter.

Soybean Replant Calculator
The Wisconsin Soybean Replant Calculator will calculate plant stand (population) within a soybean field at the VC, V1 or V2 growth stage. The app will use that estimated stand count to calculate expected yield percent at harvest with and without spring replanting. You can then use the calculated values and the economics of your own farming operation to determine if spring replanting is a viable option.
