Syngenta launches GreenCast® Turf App to support tank-mixing calculations and record-keeping

  • App delivers time-saving tool for course superintendents
  • Records spray application details and generates reports
  • Improves efficiency of record-keeping and reporting
  • Supports responsible stewardship and best practices for pesticide applications

Syngenta is launching the GreenCast® Turf App, for use with both Apple® and Android™ smartphones and tablets. The GreenCastTurf App is a record-keeping application designed to streamline the tank-mixing calculation and record-keeping process. When recording spray applications, the app provides both efficiencies and accuracy through software calculations.

“Precision tank-mixing and product dosage are important for appropriate pest control and environmental stewardship," says David Kuypers, CGCS, Syngenta Canada Turf Specialist. “This new tool simplifies product application through calculations, and reduces the potential for error while improving communication between operators."

The GreenCast Turf App allows users to input sprayer details including tank size, spraying volume, driving speed and acreage specific to their location. With this information, the app generates a specific tank filling plan that includes both product and water volume. For easy reference, calculations may be saved for future use.

To support sharing, reports may be emailed in multiple file formats including PDF and CSV, and they are also saved within the application for convenient record-keeping. The reports also include information required by various agencies including date and time of applications, driving speed, weather conditions during applications, nozzle details, active ingredients used, quantity, and more.

“At Syngenta, we partner with Canadian superintendents to support golf through science and education," explains Kuypers. “This app is another tool available to them to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of golf course operations."

The GreenCast Turf App is available on iTunes and Google Play.
