A new app lets you check whether a plant you have is an invasive plant, and you can even identify plants with photos, sounds or other cues.
The app, called Plants ID, lets you use the iPhone or Android device’s camera to capture photos of a plant and analyze its structure, color and other characteristics.
You can then check the plant’s status with the app, and it can then be assigned a green thumbs up or down.
It’s not the first time such a tool has appeared, but it is the first to allow users to check whether the plants they have are invasive or not.
It has the advantage that if you find the plants in question to be invasive, you can quickly identify them with a simple glance.
A company called CropID is another such app that offers similar functionality.
Both companies say the tools are intended to help weeders identify plants they can’t identify through traditional means, such as DNA or other techniques.
Both the new and older tools rely on similar software that works by looking at the plant you’re looking at.
This software then compares the plant to other plants, and if it has similarities, it’s identified as invasive.
The difference is that the newer tool will not ask you for a DNA test, instead using its own unique algorithm that determines whether the plant is an invading plant or not based on the characteristics of the photos or sound the user makes.
This is what Plants ID looks like:A Plant ID screenshotThe company says Plants ID is similar to a popular weed-spotting app called Plant Spot, which was launched in 2017 and is used by more than 20 million people worldwide.
Plants Spot requires users to be online to access, and Plants ID’s creators say it’s an important tool in weed-tracking because of the amount of information that it allows you to get.
“When you are looking for invasive plants, you need to know if they are invasive and if they look like they might be,” said Ryan Shaffer, Crop ID’s CEO.
“We need to be able to identify these plants, so we can track them, so they don’t just get lost.”
The new tool is not only a tool to help identify plants, but also to identify them in different areas of the world.
A recent study from the University of Minnesota shows that while the number of people who live in places with invasive species is growing, more than half of those who live there don’t know they live in an area that has an invasive species.
CropID says the tool will also help weed-control organizations in certain regions identify and track the invasive plants they encounter.
The new app is currently available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
