Tyre manufacturer Continental has launched its all-new ‘Agriculture TireTech’ app, aimed specifically at the farming sector.

Available in the app stores and suitable for iOS and Android systems, a core element is the pressure-load calculator, where users can calculate the recommended pressure for their tyres depending on the load.

In doing so, operators can benefit from lower soil compaction, less tyre wear, higher efficiency and lower fuel consumption.

In addition to the pressure-load calculator, the app also offers broad technical information on the Continental agricultural tyre portfolio as well as a useful conversion table.

Additionally, the lead calculator compares the rolling circumferences of all Continental tyres and delivers a recommendation if the chosen tyres are applicable with the mechanical inter-axle ratio of the tractor.
