Though this event isn’t in Philly, we thought some of you might be interested nonetheless.

Tonight, April 6, in Canandaigua, NY, the use of smartphone applications to maximize profitability and efficiency on farms will be discussed. Horticulturist and landscape designer Michelle Podolec introduce and explore a variety of smartphone applications and technologies that pertain to farm life. Learn how to use applications to improve your customer relations skills, or to manage pests. She’ll also discuss the various plans and technologies available, and which will best suit you.

This is sure to be a valuable lesson for the tech-savvy farmer, and those who’d like to become more innovative. Better yet, you don’t even have to have a smartphone to attend—you can still come to hear about the options. Smartphones are becoming more prevalent, and while they seem complicated and excessive at times, it’s hard to deny the record-keeping and specialized benefits they offer.
