Amazone Fertiliser Service, now also as an App for Smartphones
With immediate effect Amazone offers its FertiliserService as an App for Smartphones. This new service commences with an App for iPhone from Apple; Smartphones from other manufacturers will follow. Smartphones are mobile phones with an additional internet access and computer functions. The additional functions for these Smartphones are calles App.
Owners of iPhones (including iPod Touch and iPad) can now access the correct settings for their fertiliser spreader and use those settings for that machine there and then in the field – it couldn't be more convenient and simpler! The App, which is available in all major languages can be downloaded to the iPhone free of charge via Apple’s App Store and so will then be available – without additional cost – around the clock. Its use is self-explanatory and every query is very quickly actioned.
The detailed setting charts, from which the optimum settings for numerous different fertilisers and application rates can be taken are well regarded and, since 1999, Amazone has offered, via its FertiliserService, the ability to be able to download these from the Internet. In this way, depending on machine model, working width, kind of fertiliser and application rate, the precise values for the shutter slide opening and spreading discs angle can be accessed, helping to save cost and to protect the environment. Also, with the aid of this tool, owners of Amazone fertiliser spreaders can find the settings for any new kinds of fertiliser and this has proven to be of special advantage when using Amazone’s FertiliserService.
