AGWEEK has added a new way to keep up on the latest news in agriculture.

The new AGWEEK app brings together AGWEEK news, episodes of AGWEEK TV, weather, local cash bid information and futures market information. The app will provide a new way for AGWEEK to connect with its audiences and to deliver the latest news and information in a new format.

"We're excited to bring our readers and viewers a unique offering in our new AGWEEK app," says Katie Pinke, AGWEEK Publisher. "We know this app can improve farmers' efficiency and share important real-time information."

Similar to other news apps, the AGWEEK app provides an up-to-the-minute feed of news. But the app also provides real-world tools to help its primary audience — farmers and ranchers — have necessary information at their fingertips.

Real-time actionable information from local elevators participating with BUSHEL from Myriad Mobile is available on the app. Users can find cash-bid information as well as contact information and directions for local elevators. Futures market data for common commodities in the region also are on the app.

The app is available for download in Google Play or the Apple App Store.
