The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture is excited to announce the release of an app that will help producers calculate the dollar and nutritive value of manure and allow them to share results via email. Yesterday, I, along with Dr. Karl VanDevender, U of A Division of Agriculture Professor/Extension Engineer, released the “Manure Valuator” app for use on Android devices.
Users of the app have quick access to:
- A bulk cost calculator to determine cost per pound of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium from inorganic fertilizers
- A database consisting of nutritive value of 18 different sources of manure which allows users to enter custom values for dry and wet manures
The app is available for free at Google Play Store.
Users can also install the app on their mobile device by scanning the code below with QR reader application or visit the web addresses linked above.
An iOS version of the app is under development and will be released soon.
