Sulky fertiliser spreaders offer mobile app

Written by  Mark Daniel

For the past decade, European fertiliser spreader manufacturer Sulky has been offering Fertitest, a service designed to assist with the configuration and effective use of the brand’s spreaders.

Currently, the system offers more than 1500 listed fertilizers with the indicative settings for Sulky fertilizer spreaders.

A new “My Fertitest” platform makes the most of current interactive technologies to enable farmers to create and administer an on-line user account, to personalise and record his machine settings. 

Using the platform, a farmer can build a unique database, that can be re-used as a reference point for future fertiliser applications. As part of the package, a notepad makes it possible to add notes for each fertilizer and a preferred setting, while also creating a record to provide traceability of the operations.

My Fertitest avoids re-entries and makes it possible to simplify the procedure of searching for settings by ensuring individual or multiple machines are recorded in their real configurations. In practice, a user connects to My Fertitest using his account, to find previous settings used with an individual fertilizer, without the need to choose fertilizer and machine configuration.

From January 2020, Fertitest has evolved to offer a new mobile application version, available and usable in offline mode, either by downloading e-application via www.fertitest.sulky-burel.com or mobile app stores.
