The South Dakota Wheat Growers Insights & Markets app for iPhone, Android, and iPad brings in data from many different sources to help producers make smart & educated decisions about their crops. The app centers around the cash bid prices for each of SDWG’s 30+ locations and features a first of its kind tool that allows producers to set a price threshold for any crop at any location and then receive alert notifications when a price has been reached. This tool gives producers a valuable way to keep up with the markets, without having to constantly check for updated prices. It also gives the Cooperatives a new insight into the market prices producers are looking for.
The app also features futures prices for all grain types, current and forecasted weather, and SDWG’s exclusive Morning Market Insights which is a short editorial written every morning by SDWG staff.
The app is the first built on Move Creative’s new Silo platform (gosilo.com) that brings Cooperatives throughout the nation the ability to create customized and rich app experiences for their members.
Move Creative has previously built for the Central Valley Ag Cooperative in Nebraska and will be rolling out additional apps for cooperatives throughout the Midwest in 2014 and 2015.
