New app launched to make lives of cane growers easier

IN an industry-first, a smart phone app for Queensland cane growers has been launched by not-for-profit sugar marketer Queensland Sugar Limited.

The QSL app has been designed to make cane farmers' lives easier by giving them access to sugar pricing and global sugar market information all from the palm of their hand.

QSL chief executive Greg Beashel said growers were often time poor due to juggling the pressing priorities of running a farm and optimising their sugar returns.

"The QSL app provides a one-stop-shop where growers can easily monitor the market and their pricing while they're out in the field ... rather than waiting until they get home at the end of a long day to log on and tackle the pricing jobs,” he said.

The app is free and available for both Apple and Android phones by searching 'QSL App' in either the App Store or Google Play store.
