Kuhn Farm Machinery has launched a new mobile application to help grassland farmers select the most appropriate hay and silage making equipment.
The new ‘ForageXpert’ application has been developed by Kuhn to help farmers find the right mower, mower conditioner, tedder or rake to suit their farm’s specific needs. The tool enables farmers to select the right Kuhn kit according to the farm’s current machinery list, thereby ensuring any future machinery purchases are compatible with existing kit.
In a few clicks, the ForageXpert application provides a diagrammatic representation of the swath pattern and dimensions produced by the selected mower/mower conditioner, and provides a list of compatible tedders and/or rake combinations along with a full description of each tool.
“Smartphones and mobile applications are becoming an increasingly important tool for farmers in all sectors of agriculture,” explains Duncan McLeish, UK Sales Manager for Kuhn Farm Machinery.
“This latest Kuhn application provides a quick reference guide for grassland farmers in the market for new hay or silage making equipment and can simplify the machinery selection process. The ForageXpert app allows users to select and save the most appropriate machinery combinations for their farming system, and easily links back to the Kuhn.co.uk website where a full breakdown of each machine’s specification and technical information can be found.”
The ForageXpert application is available free of charge for Android and iOS users, and can be used on smartphones and tablets.
Other Kuhn mobile applications include Kuhn’s sprayer nozzle configurator, seeder calibration assistant and precision seeding set-up guide.
