DuPont Crop Protection recently announced an innovative application to help customers — a “TankMix App,” created for iPhone and iTouch users. The DuPont Information Technology’s (IT) Innovation Office, under the leadership of John Puckett, director, IT innovation, sponsored the project.
The TankMix App provides basic math calculations for the amount of product and water needed per tank or area. The current TankMix App does not contain product specific information. However, a link to the DuPont CP Web site guides users to specific production information and usage guidance. This app calculates spray volumes.
According to John Chrosniak, regional business director, Crop Protection, North America, the team was able to develop the app through the collaboration of a cross-functional team. Team members included John Beitler, Kevin Ego, Bernardo Tiburcio, Chandra Manickam and Mike Hemman. Work on future versions and additional applications that support Crop Protection products is under way.
The TankMix App is available through http://www.apple.com/downloads, where it is free to download on any Apple iTouch or iPhone. A simple search for Crop Protection, DuPont or Agriculture will give growers access to the free calculator.
