Able: Designing apps for the modern farmer

I grew up on a farm, with a pitchfork in hand and hours of chores. Besides GPS, there was little computer technology integrated in our daily tasks. It's amazing to see how critical technology has become to sustainable farm culture, not just to make the old farming tasks easier, but to introduce it to a new generation.

I've been working with Bright Agrotech (leaders of indoor farming hardware like Zipgrow) on a series of app prototypes for both farm education and management. Below is a look into some of our progress.

 

We are working on 3 prototypes: Set-up, Task Collaboration, and "Ask a farmer". The Farm Set-up tool is currently being used and improved as users give feedback via Intercom.
