A web-based crop protection selection tool, AgChemExpert, launched this week. AgChemExpert is a custom designed software program that helps farmers and agronomists alike understand what chemicals do what, how and when to use them and even what they are made up of, according to the company’s release. Developed by agronomist Chris Hawkins, A-C-E is an interactive tool to help Western Canadian farmers explore their pre-seed and in-crop crop protection options, and includes several insider tips to get the most out of each product.
The database includes more than 500 crop/chemical combinations, nearly 200 weeds, close to 50 diseases, more than 75 insects and more than 90 alternative products to choose from.
