Fertilisers are continually rising in price and the need for inputs to be maximised along with balancing environmental concerns has lead to the launching of a Smartphone app which will deliver machine calibration information to mobile devices in the field.
Door opening and gear ratios for a range of fertiliser types and spread widths can be accessed by farmers and the information will be stored on the device for use in remote areas with no network coverage.
The user interface has simple navigation with extensive help menus which will help new users. Calibration settings for all current model Marshall Multispreads are stored in the database alongside a list of six common fertiliser types.
Also built in is a calculator tool which will output precise fertiliser rate based on material collected from the spreader hopper during a static calibration test.
Available for both iPhones and iPads through the iTunes store, the Multispread app is also available for Android devices through the Google Play Store.
