A new mobile-phone App from Syngenta has given greenkeepers and turf managers the opportunity to improve the efficiency of all spray applications, as well as maintain their spray records simply and effectively.
The SyngentaTurf App has simplified spray recommendation information and eliminated the need for manual record keeping.
The free App, available now for Apple and android smart phones or tablets, has directly addressed the key concerns of greenkeepers and agronomists for spray record keeping and improving application techniques.
Using the Syngenta Turf App, Course Managers or agronomists can quickly and easily create any required recommendations, which can be sent direct to the sprayer operator - cutting out the risk of errors or misinterpretation of verbal or written instructions.
Furthermore, the information can be sent back to the office to compile a comprehensive and accurate report of precisely what has been applied, where and when.
With the App tank-mixes and recommendations can now be created and saved for later application - optimising use of time and ensuring operators are ready to go when conditions are right. This can also aid store management and help to ensure sufficient products has been ordered and available when required.
The easy to use auto-fill product database now includes the complete Syngenta product range, along with a detailed full resource of fertiliser and turf health products from Everris. Any additional products can be added into to a custom database, which will be available for instant reference with subsequent applications.
The Syngenta Turf App can be fully customised to an individuals' own golf course or facility, including details such as turf areas, sprayer details and operators, which can be quickly included during the spray recommendation process and for the course records.
Integrated with the Syngenta Turf website, it provides instant on-line application tools and calculators to enable quick and accurate sprayer set-up and calibration to get the best possible results from every application.
The Syngenta Turf App is available for free download from the iTunes Store or Google Play.
