“Winner of Best Emerging Technology – Dowerin Field Days 2015”
Due to the rising costs of fertilisers and the need to maximise inputs whilst balancing environmental concerns, Roesner has developed a smartphone app that delivers up-to-date machine calibration and operating information to mobile devices in the field. When coupled with an electronics module and hardware on the spreader the app can be used to monitor and control fertiliser application rates. The app can be used in three modes : Calibration, MDC Monitoring and Control.
In calibration mode, farmers can access machine calibration settings such as door openings and gear ratios for a range of fertiliser types and spread widths. Calibration information is stored on the device so the app can be used in remote areas with no network access. Custom fertiliser densities can be added to the rate table tool to enable precise calibration of compound granulated fertilisers and organic materials such as manures and mulches. The spreader app stores the custom density values for future use.
