Nutrient Tracker replaces the need for optional scales and indicators.

Digi-Star LLC introduces Nutrient Tracker, a new application management and documentation system for manure-spreading operations. It is the first system specifically developed as an interface with manure spreaders, offering recordkeeping and documenting in the field, plus report generation and management features in the office. Now operators can see the application rate while spreading and automatically collecting application information. Software combines the data with downloaded satellite images of producers' fields to show exactly where, when and how much of the nutrients were applied. The NT460 can be cab-mounted and records farm and field name, load numbers and weights, application rates and accumulated totals. A start-stop feature allows the operator to simply push “start” when he begins to unload and push “stop” when completed. The system does the rest. A flash drive can be used to transfer data from the NT460 to the office computer. For more information, visit or call (800) 225-7695.
