How much fertilizer to use?

The optimal nitrogen supply of the field crop is, was and will be the most critical decision in agriculture and it was never as hard as it is today. The need for high yields due to economic pressures often clashes with concerns about ecological, political, and social responsibility, casting doubt on your farm management practices.

N-Pilot® 2.0 helps solve this dilemma.

N-Pilot® 2.0 is a handheld, portable sensor that supports decisions about fertilizer applications.

How does it work? Simply put, it measures the nitrogen nutritional status of crops by assessing the plants chlorophyll content and the amount of biomass.

N-Pilot®  2.0 provides a nitrogen fertilization recommendation that includes all top-dressings for cereals and the total N-requirement for rape seed after winter.
