John Deere will bolster its precision agriculture offering with See & Spray Select technology.

 

Five new John Deere sprayers equipped with the company's See & Spray Select advanced spraying technology will be joining the company lineup this year.

The three new 400 (408R, 410R and 412R) and two new 600 (612R and 616R) Series Sprayers, as well as three new Hagie Self-Propelled Sprayers (STS12, STS16 and STS20), will be available for order by mid-2021. 

In an announcement, John Deere Australia managing director Luke Chandler says the new models will help Australian farmers do more with less. 

"We partner with industry to meet the unique needs of our customers and are delighted to come to market with this suite of new products we know will make a real difference for Australian farmers," he says.

In its announcement, Deere says the 400 and 600 Series sprayers will have a new boom reciruclation feature that keeps liquid solution in suspension, meaning it will always be primed and ready to spray - while an air purge system enables improved cleanout, to save time and reduce waste. 

They will also come with the company's AutoTrac and ExactApply technologies, which respectively help keep the sprayer in precise alignment for product placement and helps control droplet size, spray pressure and individual nozzles. 

The new See & Spray integrated camera technology helps to minimise input costs by treating weeds only when they are detected. 

Developed in partnership with the University of Southern Queensland, See & Spray is built on the foundation of the ExactApply technology, enabling farmers to apply more expensive and complex tank mixes more efficiently, and easily switch from targeted to broadcast spraying without leaving the cab.

See & Spray rapidly detects only green plants within fallow ground and triggers an application to those plants, Deere says, adding that it achieves a similar hitrate to broadcast spraying but uses an average of 77 per cent less herbicide. 

Deere says a 400 or 600 Series Sprayer factory equipped with See & Spray is the only Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) solution which delivers this capability.
