Ag Leader Adds Dual Product Application Control to EDGE™ Display

by Apr 28, 2010News & Announcements

AMES, IOWA, April 28, 2010 – Today, Ag Leader Technology, Inc., a leader in the development of precision farming solutions, added dual product control for application operations to the popular EDGE display. Dual product control is the latest piece of functionality added to an already feature-packed, year-round precision farming display. Chemical Injection Dual product control in the EDGE display will support sprayer control of a liquid carrier and a single injection pump. Like other Ag Leader products, the EDGE display’s DirectCommand system now interfaces to the Raven Sidekick chemical injection pump for complete control over chemical injection applications. The EDGE display and CAN module will replace the Sidekick Console, directly connecting to the injection pump. Automated prime and calibration routines as well as advanced sensor diagnostics are part of the new functionality. This addition can be used for herbicide, fungicide, and insecticide as well as nitrogen stabilizer injection application. Granular Fertilizer Application Dual product control also means two channels of granular product control in the EDGE display. Operators have the ability to apply two products simultaneously at varying rates, either manually or using a prescription. “We continually strive to provide practical solutions to enhance user-experience and productivity,” says John Howard, Product Manager. “The addition of dual product application control combined with existing EDGE display functionality provides an economical solution with the tools to achieve this.” Additional functionality of the EDGE display includes SeedCommand, DirectCommand, yield monitoring, guidance and steering capabilities. In addition, the EDGE display is plug compatible with Ag Leader’s Integra and InSight displays; this gives users who wish to upgrade in the future a seamless transition.
