Proper Plant Coverage
Droplet Size Monitoring
With emerging weed resistance across the country, it is more crucial than ever to apply product correctly ensuring the best chemical efficacy and coverage. Droplet Size Monitoring is the best way to ensure proper plant coverage and is available right from the run screen. As an example, when using a contact herbicide, a fine droplet size and high volume of carrier per acre is necessary to ensure the product application is thorough and effective.
Do you know how flow meters handle low flow situations? Not effectively. The Pressure Fallback feature ensures proper coverage in these scenarios.
As an example, when the operator slows down at the edge of field with the majority of sections shutoff, effective weed control may not occur because the flow meter is recognizing an incorrect flow rate. With Pressure Fallback, the system automatically uses the pressure sensor to accurately calculate the desired rate and ensure consistent coverage - saving you from spotty weeds and re-application.
How to Avoid Spray Drift and killing neighboring fields.
Each agro-chemical has a droplet category which specifies how it is to be best applied. This information is readily found on the product label.
As an example, this herbicide requires a coarse droplet size to effectively saturate the plant.
By glancing at the gauge, the operator sees that a fine droplet size is being applied, which prevents this particular herbicide from working effectively and may also result in spray drift. Simply slowing down the speed to reduce the pressure and return to a course droplet size would correct these errors.
Easy Spray Tip Management
The DirectCommand ISOBUS Liquid Module takes drift control one step further with real-time monitoring of droplet size based on current system pressure and an easy to use interface and dynamic color-coded pressure gauge. Apply with accuracy, efficiency and safety. Here's how:
1.) Simply enter the characteristics of your tips in the wizard or chose yours from one of the several commonly found ISO tips already entered.
2.) Look for the indicator on the left side of the run screen and use vehicle speed to control droplet size to reduce drift and apply with the best coverage.
View two screens at once The all in one display
Ag Leader’s new InCommand™ display brings enhanced mapping including split screen, allowing the operator to view multiple real-time pieces of information including map screen and universal terminal at the same time. And when paired with AgFiniti® Mobile, growers can seamlessly take their maps with them.
Effortless Application Reports
Simplify application reporting with SmartReports™ to generate detailed reports for government recordkeeping. Automatically generate .pdf reports that provide location, product information, applied totals, as-applied maps and more right from the display.
With AgFiniti® Mobile, applicators can take their maps with them on their iPad®, allowing for quick and convenient decision-making and application documentation. For example, variable rate control data collected at application can easily be synced on the iPad® to take with you to the field for scouting, reporting and spot checks.
Powerful Desktop Software
Use SMS™ desktop software to create variable rate application prescriptions, view and analyze application coverage maps and much more.
