Manure Tracker app
for Android smartphones (iPhone version coming soon)
The Manure Tracker app allows you to record manure applications on a field by field basis. By creating a list of FIELD names specific to your farm, each manure application is saved to your smartphone and can be sent as a .csv file to an email address for further record management and safe keeping.
FIELD information includes the Field Name, the Field Size in acres and Spreader Capacity in tons or thousand gallons. You can also choose to set a map location for the FIELD using your phone’s GPS, internet connection and map application.
Application records can be BASIC or ADVANCED.
BASIC fields record spreader capacity, manure source (such as dairy or swine; you can also create custom source names) and application method (surface applied, incorporated or injected). When you have completed applications to the FIELD, you can tap the MARK COMPLETED button and your manure application rate for that field will be displayed. You can use this information to calculate manure nutrient credits for the field.
ADVANCED fields record spreader capacity, manure source, application method along with soil condition, temperature and precipitation (at the time of application) and driver’s name. This data may be useful in conjunction with other nutrient management record keeping software.
Use email reports to send the FIELD HISTORY list of manure application records to your main computer. A .csv file in inluded that can be opened in a spreadsheet and saved (for example, saved in Excel for import into SnapPlus software).
