Press Release Feb 22, Guelph-based The Savvy Farmer Inc. has announced the launch of Savvy Farmer lite, a FREE version of its popular Savvy Farmer software.
First launched in 2011, Savvy Farmer is already trusted by many farmers, agricultural retailers, custom applicators, agronomists, and government across Canada as the #1 source of unbiased pest control information. This new service "was created in response to farmers who want quick and easy access to pest control information but do not feel they need the added features found within the full Savvy Farmer paid software," Savvy Farmer president Warren Libby said in a release. Savvy Farmer Lite can be accessed at www.savvyfarmerlite.com while information on all the Savvy Farmer softwares can be found at www.savvyfarmer.com
