Using multiple chemicals in one application is a common occurrence; producers use mixtures to overcome weed resistance issues, as well as save time when multiple products need to be applied to a field in the same time period. An incorrect mix could lead to over- or under-application of active ingredient, resulting in crop injury or non-performance issues. Using the correct mixing sequence is also key for compatibility purposes; a non-compatible mix can lead to clogging problems resulting in difficulty pushing the mixture through the tank’s spray lines and nozzles.
Using the Mix Tank app, producers can find the correct sequence for crop protection tank mixes to ensure effective use of all chemicals. In addition, they will save time and money with the ability to easily mix multiple products and eliminate application problems.
The Mix Tank application eliminates guesswork for producers and provides consistent results. Over 900 crop protection products from over 17 manufacturers are included in the application and users can select up to 19 products from the following categories: herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, foliar nutrition and adjuvants. Jim Reiss, vice president of agricultural chemistries at Precision Laboratories says, “An improper mix can cause lost time and money. By using the Mix Tank app, users can get the most out of every tank mix.”
According to Telvent's Chairman and CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, “Telvent is committed to innovation in the agriculture industry and helping producers make the best decisions for their businesses. The partnership between DTN/The Progressive Farmer and Precision Laboratories reflects our commitment to providing expert knowledge to our customers.”
The application is available as part of a subscription to DTN Grains Professional. To subscribe, visit www.dtntheprogressivefarmer.com.
