Authors: Yunovidov D.V., Nadezhin M.N.

Rights holder: Research Institute for Fertilizers and Insect Fungicides named after Professor Y.V.Samoilov (JSC NIUIF).

Program: “Salt Index Calculator”.


The software is designed to calculate the salt index of various mineral fertilizers. The calculations are based on the information on the phase composition of fertilizers (by main phases) and tabular data on the conductivity (salt indices) of the initial components of fertilizers (phases).

The software works with Russian and English languages and allows:

  1. Set the type and brand of fertilizer: * to specify the content of basic nutrients and sulphur; * to specify the main components of fertilizers (main phases).
  2. To clarify and supplement the database of conductivity of diluted solutions of initial fertilizer components (salt indexes).
  3. Supplement basic fertilizer components.
  4. Export the obtained information as .txt, .csv, *.xls files.
  5. Build the report.
