ARDMORE, Okla. — With continuous technology advancements, production agriculture is more efficient and mobile than ever before.
As part of Noble Research Institute's focus on advancing agriculture, the organization has released a new app called "Ag Tools." The app will provide agricultural producers and land managers with calculators and utilities to help crunch numbers and gain information when making management decisions. Calculation topics include beef cattle, grazing, wildlife and fisheries, pecan trees, sprayer calibration and fertilization.
"We wanted to create an app that would provide more information for farmers and ranchers, giving them the ability to make better-informed management decisions out in the field," said Bryan Nichols, Noble Research Institute livestock consultant. "We chose the calculators that best fit the common situations producers encounter on a daily basis."
The app is available for free download through the Apple (App Store direct link) and Android (Google Play direct link) app stores. The calculators are also available in a desktop version online at noble.org/ag/tools.
Calculators currently available in the app are:
- Body Condition Score Change
- Breeding Season
- Calving Season
- Frame Score
- Lime Application
- Pond Fish Stocking
- Pearson Square Ration Balancing
- Value of Gain
More calculators will be added in the future.

Noble Research Institute, LLC (www.noble.org) is an independent nonprofit agricultural research organization dedicated to delivering solutions to great agricultural challenges. Headquartered in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Noble’s goal is to achieve regenerative land stewardship in grazing animal production with producer profitability. Achievement of this goal will be measured by farmers and ranchers profitably regenerating hundreds of millions of acres of U.S. grazing lands. Noble aims to remove, mitigate or help producers avoid the barriers that deter the lasting use of regenerative, profitable land management practices in grazing animal production.
Researchers, consultants, educators and ranch staff work together to give farmers and ranchers the skills and tools to regenerate the land in a profitable manner. Noble researchers and educators seek and deliver answers to producer questions concerning regenerative management of pasture and range environments, wildlife, pecan production, and livestock production. Regenerative management recognizes that each decision made on the ranch impacts the interactions of the soil, plants, water, animals and producers. Noble’s 14,000 acres of working ranch lands provide a living laboratory on which to demonstrate and practice regenerative principles and ideas to deliver value to farmers and ranchers across the U.S.
