Waukegan, Illinois- Precision Laboratories is proud to announce that their Mix Tank app received AgProfessional Readers’ Choice Top Product of the Year as the most innovative product to reach the market in 2011. The free Mix Tank app, available on iPhone and iPod touch, offers the first of its kind assistance in determining the accurate mixing sequence for crop protection products, adjuvants and foliar nutrition products – helping growers get the most out of every tank mix.
In its fifth annual contest, the Readers’ Choice Award highlights the top products over the past year with the most potential to impact the agricultural industry as chosen by AgProfessional readers. The Mix Tank app outranked nine other new products that were selected by the publication’s editors and opened to online reader voting.
“We are honored to receive this award from AgProfessional magazine,” said Jim Reiss, vice president of Agricultural Chemistries at Precision Laboratories. “To know that the readers have selected Mix Tank as the No. 1 new product for 2011 is an indication that our continuing dedication to providing customers with innovative and “Best of Class” products is right on track.”
The Mix Tank app helps agricultural retailers, crop specialists, university researchers and growers avoid tank mix problems before they happen. Improper mixing sequence of crop protection products can lead to compatibility problems and nozzle plugging. The app eliminates the guess work by ensuring effective use of all chemicals—saving them time and money.
Mix Tank has a database of more than 900 crop protection products from over 17 manufacturers that continues to increase in size. Users have the ability to share their recommended mixing orders through email, Facebook and Twitter and to request that additional crop protection products be added to the database.
