Phone app helps farmers gauge weather

Florida farmers can now use their smartphones to coordinate their crops.

It's all part of a digital makeover for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

It will provide up to the minute information on key weather variables, including rainfall, temperature, humidity and wind speed. That will help farmers make decisions on water use, pesticide spraying and nutrient applications.

The app is available on Android smartphone platforms and an iPhone app will be available in coming months.
