Everris has launched an online app covering plant nutrient deficiency for use on smartphones, tablets and PCs.
Fertilisers technical manager Andrew Wilson said: "This useful tool is designed to help growers correct nutrient deficiencies in container nursery stock and in pot and bedding plants."
The process involves four steps. The first is to select a crop type, before indicating the main deficiency symptom such as discoloration, growth disorder or necrosis.
Step three requires being more specific about the deficiency symptom(s), with a choice of options and pictures to help. Step four provides information on the deficiency and a proposed solution.
Wilson added: "The app allows the user to quickly access additional information on any specific Everris water soluble or controlled release product by clicking on the relevant product image. This links direct to the main Everris website. For those looking for additional technical support, the app helps the user locate contact details for the relevant Everris advisor."
The printed deficiency posters, for pot and bedding and a separate poster for container nursery stock, have also been updated and reprinted. These now include QR codes and are long lasting, as have been printed using UV proof ink and then laminated.
The posters are available from Everris area sales managers and can be collected from the Everris stand at the Four Oaks Trade Show.
