OHP Inc. recently announced the introduction of 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 in the field,” said 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 application calculates the amounts of solution and product needed.
As new generations of growers begin to adopt technology into their work practices, applications like the PGR calculator will become useful tools, according to Dan Stahl, OHP vice president of marketing and business development. The application allows growers to perform rate calculations for the OHP stable of PGRs, including Augeo, B-Nine, Cycocel and Paczol.
