Slurry Spreading Calibration Tool

Slurry Calibration Tool imageIn order to make the best use of the available nutrients in slurry it is important to ensure that you are applying:

  • the right rate
  • in the right field
  • at the right time.

Getting the right application rate has always been a bit of a guessing game. Teagasc have created a simple online calibration calculator to eliminate the guess work out of this. The tool can be used with any type of slurry tanker no matter what applicator is being used on the back. It works on your smart phone so it can be accessed from the tractor seat.

It is simple to use, sliders allow you to input the size of tanker, spread width and the time taken to empty the load. Then select your desired application rate and it will give you the correct forward speed needed. This will ensure you are making the most of the valuable fertiliser source.
