A free Manure Valuator smartphone app helps calculate manure's value to value of inorganic inputs.
Manure is valuable, but how valuable? It's a question that many farmers and ranchers have considered – probably more than once or twice. But a new smartphone app is ready to take the guesswork out of the answer.
The Manure Valuator app, designed by the University of Arkansas (UA) Division of Agriculture, does just that: it calculates the dollar and nutritive value of manure applied to a specific field. Then, it shares the results via email.
The app was developed by Dharmendra Saraswat, UA associate professor and extension engineer, and Karl VanDevender, a professor and Extension engineer, both in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering.
