Launch of sulphur/micronutrient rate calculator app
H.J. Baker, a global agriculture firm, has launched a new app. The app will assist agronomists and farmers in determining the precise amount of micronutrient enhanced sulphur fertilizers required to optimize crop yields.
Successful growers know sulphur and micronutrient deficiencies prevent maximum crop response. The interaction between sulphur and most micronutrients make it the ideal partner for micronutrient delivery. Using a micronutrient enhanced sulphur prevents deficiencies and saves money on logistics, while providing the highest nutrient value per pound of fertilizer. The challenge is applying the right quantities precisely.
Using the micronutrient enhanced sulphur application rate guide developed by Tiger-Sul Products subsidiary helps determine the precise quantities to apply. The app version makes the rate guide accessible on mobile devices anywhere and gives users a powerful calculator at their fingertips. In addition to the calculator, the app has detailed information on micronutrients, crop deficiency symptoms, and connects quickly with fertilizer specialists by phone and email.
Wesley Haun, research agronomist at H.J. Baker’s Tiger-Sul Products said: “We are always looking to create and provide innovative tools to agronomists and farmers. Our calculator is a management decision aid to determine appropriate rates of sulphur and micronutrients application that will result in maximum crop yields. This calculator is another example of H.J. Baker leading the industry in providing superior products and outstanding customer service.”
The app is available at Apple’s App Store and Google Play for Android users. It calculates micronutrient enhanced sulphur fertilizer application rates for: magnesium, boron, iron, copper, manganese and zinc.
