The Power of Your SmartPhone...for Nitrogen Management!
• Collect In-Season Data From Your Crop Via Image Analysis
• Make Site-Specific Fertilization Decisions
*Download the FieldScout GreenIndex+ application from the Apple iTunes Store ($99.00), the link will be provided here. In order for the Application to be used properly, you must purchase the FieldScout GreenIndex+ Board (Item 2910B) here.
Now there is a better, more affordable way to monitor the health of your crops. Taking advantage of the latest advancements in technology, the FieldScout® GreenIndex+™ app conveniently captures and processes images from an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad and instantly computes the Dark Green Color Index (DGCI) of plant leaves, which is a measurement of the plant’s greenness. Because nitrogen is a part of the chlorophyll pigment, measuring the greenness of plants allows growers to indirectly measure the amount of nitrogen in the plant and make decisions for more efficient scheduling of fertilizer applications.
Make corrective measurements based on early diagnosis of severe nitrogen deficiencies to prevent significant yield reduction
Lower nitrogen costs and increase profits through more efficient application of fertilizers
Compute SPAD equivalent based on research correlating DGCI to SPAD readings in corn at the V6 growth stage
Compare crop health via relative greenness for any crop under different fertility, fungicide, or foliar treatments
All data is logged and geo-referenced, and can be emailed to a personal computer for further analysis
