Excited to see the real time data
I am pretty excited to see the real time data in my area. The usu extension has offered frost alerts and other pest management services in my area for a number of years, this app does a good job of tracking various fruit related pests and showing current management actions I can take.
I like that I can get the current conditions in the field at any time.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
