The Sunbelt Ag Expo featured a wide range of new equipment innovations on display in one location. If you went to the Expo, you may have seen the massive 120′ self-propelled sprayer on display at the John Deere exhibit. This machine came equipped with the See and Spray Select system installed. That got me curious, so I searched YouTube to find a video that demonstrated how this new technology works. This is an interesting new concept giving producers the option of broadcast spray applications or spot treatment of individual weeds on the fly. Watch the video to see how this new system operates.
According to John Deere, “Farmers can use See & Spray Select, installed on a John Deere Sprayer, to minimize input costs and only spray weeds when they are detected. This technology makes it possible for farmers to use more expensive and complex tank mixes more efficiently than what they can broadcast, reducing their costs, improving their ability to control herbicide-resistant weeds at a lower cost.“
