Master Seeds app fine tunes seed rates
The new Seed Rate Calculator App from Agrii makes it easy and convenient to plan your seed requirements and calibrate your sowing equipment to establish the optimum plant populations for high performing crops.
Uniquely, the app enables growers and agronomists to compare the planned target population against the actual crop establishment. This knowledge provides the user with a sound evidence base for adjusting variable rate and whole-field seed rates as well as subsequent crop management protocols.
Ewan McFarlane, who led the app development project for Agrii, explained that “an accurate knowledge of how plant establishment varies over different soil types and seedbed conditions is essential if growers are to optimise their investment in variable seed rate and soil mapping technologies, this app helps our customers achieve this goal”.
The calculator web app is available to use on the Agrii website by visiting http:// www.agrii.co.uk/seed-rate-calculator/ with versions for all mainstream smartphone and tablet computers following later in the year.
