OHP has introduced its first iPhone application, designed for Apple iPhone, iTouch or iPad users. The PGR Calculator Application is available immediately at no charge through the iTunes Application Store.
“We wanted to develop a tool that takes the guesswork out of the equation when it comes to calculating and applying PGRs (plant growth regulants) in the field,” says Dave Barcel, OHP senior technical manager and PGR expert. “It’s as easy as making a phone call on the iPhone.”
The PGR Calculator will allow the user to look up current PGR rates in ppm for spray or drench applications. The grower then enters the desired dose and the size of the application area, or the number of pots for a drench and the app calculates the amounts of solution and product needed.
“A simple tool like this takes the guess work out of PGR applications and calibration. It’s easy and accurate,” Barcel says.
