Krone has launched a new app for iPad and iPhone users that allows BiG X forage harvester and BiG Pack square baler operators to log customers’ records and field operation data, such as date, time and location, and to produce a simple, accurate report for more efficient invoicing and record keeping.
The CCI Control Mobile app connects via wifi in the cab to the Krone machine. In the case of the BiG X, fuel usage, area covered, crop yield and moisture, forward speed and tonnes per hour are recorded. For the Big Pack, bale weight, moisture and count is recorded along with total tonnage baled and average bale weight.
This data can be simply emailed from the iPhone/iPad as a PDF document or imported into a farm data management tool, such as the Krone BiG Data Tool, to provide a full in depth report including maps to eliminate any doubt over the completed task.
