New Holland has significantly enriched the virtual farming environment with three key mobile apps: the New Holland Weather app, the iBrochures app and an engaging FarmGenius PLM-focussed game. All three apps have been a hit with users across the globe, with up to 80,000 downloads from over 100 countries.

As farmers are working increasingly long hours, they are ever more reliant on information which they can access whilst in the field to enhance their businesses’ productivity and profitability.
Over 50,000 downloads for New Holland’s ‘Farming weather forecast and services’ app
Farmers are obsessed by the weather. It is the fundamental element which affects their everyday work and one over which they have no control over; therefore accurate weather forecasting is a must for productive agriculture. The New Holland weather app has proved popular, with over 50,000 unique downloads in more than 100 countries across all five continents. The feedback from users is almost uniformly positive and it has been awarded 4.5 stars out of a possible five by users.
This targeted agricultural weather app provides farmers with all the key parameters which are required when deciding which tasks to carry out. From actual temperature to wind speed, from the evaporation rate to analysing long term weather trends, the app has proved an enormous hit with users.
One satisfied user commented: “Really useful app, clear and precise, well done New Holland.”
