The KUHN SpreadSet app enables users to select from a pre-set range of commonlyused fertilisers and automatically calculates the correct spreader settings according
to the type of fertiliser being used, desired application rate, spreading width and operating forward speed.
“Only by ensuring that their machines have been adjusted and set-up 100% accurately can farmers ensure that they are spreading fertiliser as efficiently and effectively as possible,” explains Brian Robertson, Kuhn Operations Manager.
“The new app has therefore been developed to make it quicker and easier for KUHN customers to adjust their machine’s spreading parameters in accordance with their specific spreading requirements. By providing step-by-step instructions regarding vane angles and drop-point positions, the app makes it simple for users to achieve the optimum spreader set-up.”
Other popular KUHN applications include a seed drill calibration assistant, sprayer nozzle configurator and precision seeding assistant – all of which are available for Android and iOS devices.
The SpreadSet application functions without telephone network coverage and is automatically updated with the latest spreading charts as and when new spreaders and fertiliser products become available.
The SpreadSet app is currently available to download for free on Android devices and will soon be available to download from the Apple Store.
