Manure Calculator Debuts at Husker Harvest

September 12, 2012

After a couple months of development and user-testing, UNL is taking the wraps off the Manure Calculator iPhone/Android app at the 2012 Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island.

The app allows farmers and producers to calculate three unique attributes associated with manure spreading.  The first will calculate how much manure was spread through various spreading methods (commercial spreaders, pivots, etc.).  The second will calculate the nutrient breakdown of the manure based on the manure source and how much was spread.  The third will calculate the value of the manure based on both how much was spread and what nutrients were available.  The farmer or producer is then presented with an amount saved if they would have purchased the nutrients as standalone items.

The app will officially be released through the respective app stores within the next month.
