iFertigate: A New Mobile App to Assist With Fertigation Calculations

Nutrition management in nurseries is critical for growing quality plant crops. Applying soluble fertilizer through the irrigation system (i.e., fertigation) requires careful calculations of concentrated fertilizer products to create nutrient mixtures that will deliver target nutrition levels. The iFertigate mobile application (app), available for both iOS and Android platforms, allows the user to create and store calculations for specific nutrient tank mixes. The app provides information on macronutrient and micronutrient concentrations of each mix and gives an alert if there is a risk of precipitates. The user can set the language to either English or Spanish. This article provides background information about the app and describes how to use it. This paper was presented at the Joint Annual Meeting of the Western Forest and Conservation Nursery Association and the Intermountain Container Seedling Growers Association (Coeur d’Alene, ID, October 25–26, 2018).
