Smartphones just keep getting smarter. The latest app is designed to help mix crop protection products. Here’s the best news yet—it’s free.
Mix Tank app from Precision Laboratories is a smartphone application to help ag retailers, crop specialists and growers get the most out of every tank mix, reduce mixing errors, and eliminate plugged sprayer equipment and cross contamination errors.
The user can select from more than 700 crop protection products from 15 manufacturers to have the app generate the recommended mixing sequence. In a custom mix, users can include up to a total of 19 products from the following categories: up to 6 herbicides; up to 4 fungicides; up to 4 insecticides; up to adjuvants; and up to 2 foliar nutrition.
If the product you intend to use is not available, Precision Laboratories will add it to the database within 72 hours of being notified. Users can save their custom tank mixes and also share them via e-mail, Twitter and Facebook.
In addition to the tank mix generator, the app features a series of instructional videos about water quality, mixing sequences and spray solution pH.
To download the app, visit the iTunes store
