Winnipeg, Man. - A new agriculture news, weather and market app from the trusted farm news source gives farmers a new tool to manage a wealth of information at their fingertips.

Informed by 2022 market research that concluded checking weather, agriculture news and commodity markets are among the top-rated daily online activities by farmers, the AGCanada App is the first mobile agricultural news tool to give farmers an easier way to get all that in one place.

"We work in an industry where up-to-date news is incredibly important," says Gord Gilmour, Senior Editor, Glacier FarmMedia News and National Affairs. "Our research also indicated that farmers feel the daily information coming at them is overwhelming. The AGCanada App solves this by letting farmers choose to personalize and streamline the information they see from the Glacier FarmMedia family of farm publications."

Gilmour explains that the app gives users the power to organize news around their unique farm situation and curate their feed by choosing from a wide variety of agriculturally relevant information, including:

*geographic weather information, forecasts and news

*news interests from a selection of crop, livestock and farm management categories

*updates from 15 crop, livestock and commodity market sectors

"We tested a demo of the AGCanada App with farmers at Ag in Motion and Canada's Outdoor Farm Show recently and heard that this would be a 'game changer' for them," notes Jacqueline Catellier, Media Innovation & Product Lead with Glacier FarmMedia. "This app answers the need for farmers to easily cut through the clutter and only get what is relevant for their farm operation or business." The AGCanada App makes it simple to create an information feed that is as wide or narrow as the user wants.
