Crop diagnostic App, MyCrop, has been updated to include wheat, barley and canola. DAFWA Development officer Kelly Ryan outlines what the free App has to offer growers.



A new mobile app, designed to help farmers and growers value the nutrients found in manures, has been nominated for an award with the Soil Association. The Farm Manure Management Application, informally called the “FarmCrapApp” has been developed by the SWARM Knowledge Hub, a project run by the Rural Business School at Duchy College.

The app, which has been created in collaboration with Rothamsted Research North Wyke, allows the farming community to appreciate the nutritive and economic value of livestock manures. The app provides farmers with an opportunity to visually assess manure and slurry application rates and to calculate what is being provided in terms of available nutrients, as well as giving an estimate of potential savings in purchased artificial fertilisers.

 The new 2178 with multi-sensor technology takes readings on the left and right side, as well as through the bale, for greater accuracy. The 2178 mounts in the cab of the tractor and provides a direct readout for % moisture while baling hay. Having multiple moisture content readings during each step of the haymaking process is critical to finishing with a high quality product.


  • Bale type: Small square bales and round bales
  • Large LCD display for easy viewing during day or night
  • Average of readings updated and displayed every 2-3 seconds
  • Illuminated keypad and text display
  • ± Moisture offset adjustments
  • User can set the high and low limit of the moisture reading and will be alerted by a buzzer if exceeded
  • Software upgrade via standard USB cable

Due to the many variables associated with hay moisture measurements an occasional "spot check" using a handheld probe on finished bales is recommended.

Operating Range (Moisture): 8% to 40% depending on baler type used Accurate throughout the normal range of stored hay Display Resolution: 0.1% moisture  Check it out here
