Did you know there’s a mobile app you can download for your phone and tablet that lets you view information from TheProfiler in your field?
Servi-Tech Expanded Premium Services (STEPS) has been hard at work to put the latest technology into your hands.
This mobile app provides real-time access to soil moisture information that enables agronomists, producers and soil moisture managers to make better use of water through timely irrigation decisions.
The latest version of the app, version 2.5.3, displays the Plant Available Water (PAW) as part of the device overview. The PAW is the water content difference between field capacity and permanent wilting point of your soil at any given depth.
For more information about STEPS or TheProfiler, go to stepspro.com or contact our office at 1-800-557-7509.
Servi-Tech has a couple of mentions in the current issue of Ag Professional magazine.

Here’s a great story from The Hutchinson News (in Hutchinson, Kan):
The 25th billionth bushel of wheat in a century of Kansas wheat production was harvested earlier this month.
Farmer Mike Brown ceremoniously caught grain in a bushel basket on his farm near Colby to mark the achievement, as his son Tanner unloaded the combine into a grain cart.
Kansas Wheat reported the 25th billionth bushel cut last week. According to the association, 25 billion bushels equals more than 1 trillion commercial loaves of bread.
While an amazing feat, it’s not surprising considering Kansas’ rich history as the nation’s breadbasket, producing nearly one-fifth of all the wheat grown in the United States.
