The Mobile App takes SKYFLD® to a new level of on-farm connectivity. The interaction between the existing SKYFLD® web version and the App makes SKYFLD® a highly beneficial system in the ag world. It improves on-farm digital information flows, increases transparency, and supports decision making before, during and between seasons. With the introduction of the Mobile App, SKYFLD® targets not only farmers, but also agricultural advisors with several features revolving around field observation and scouting.

"Our Mobile App turns SKYFLD® into a collaborative data center that connects all important agronomic information. Turn observations into tasks and assign them to employees in a few seconds from anywhere on your farm - agronomic decision-making and crop management has never been easier," says Stephan Poppe-Kirchmann, Director of Digital Agriculture at HELM. Collaboration among farm stakeholders through the creation and sharing of scouting notes, tasks to be completed and assigned, organize the structured exchange of information among teams. This simplifies communication, channels, bundles, and stores all relevant information in one place on field basis.

SKYFLD®, initially developed in 2020 as a Crop Health Management System, helps optimize crop efficiency and field productivity. It supports the reduction of environmental impact, lowers treatment costs, and improves yield potential by connecting all the relevant stakeholders on a farm. SKYFLD® is HELM’s contribution to a more resilient and climate-smart agriculture.

SKYFLD® 2.0 (launched in early 2021) was a user-friendly intuitive web version and has been continuously developed since. As of today, the SKYFLD® Mobile App marks the start of SKYFLD® 3.0 - with a focus on field-centric connectivity, data exchange and farm productivity. The app is available for users across Europe and South America and runs on Android and iOS system. The download is free of charge, maximum productivity is reached by coupling it with SKYFLD® Web.
