Got the sprayer boom blues?
Even when times are good, it’s still not easy being a farmer. Sure, we don’t have to hoe by hand or plow with horses. Modern farming has eliminated some of the actual sweat from the job. But being a farmer today means sweating the details. The success or failure of a modern farm depends on a multitude of factors that make up a complex, dynamic equation. There’s math, biology, finance, marketing, public relations, legal, human resources, ethics, chemistry, and more. The modern farmer must be a clever, detail-oriented “Jack of all trades.” And there’s no better example of this need than when examining crop protection.

We’ve got you covered with everything from eliminating skips and overlap to precise flow control and droplet size monitoring.

Controlling the various pests that threaten your crop is a complex task. It can be a real challenge when considering all you’re up against. Timing, chemistry, genetics, logistics, regulation, reputation. . . the list is endless. A misplaced decimal point or a small miscommunication could cost you big time. So, when it’s time to spray your fields, don’t rush or overlook the details. Prepare and execute your plan with discipline.
SmartReports provide critical details
You could do everything perfectly and have a clean, healthy crop at the end of the spraying season. But if you forget the final detail, you could still find yourself in hot water. If the USDA comes knocking, be prepared with detailed application records. Just like the other details, it doesn’t have to be difficult or intimidating. Here is what is required:
The industry-leading InCommand 1200 display generates a “Smart Report” that automatically documents all the required information for your applications. These reports can easily be sent to the electronic storage location of your choice via USB or AgFiniti, which connects everyone in your operation. And since they’re saved as a common .pdf file, you can print and save paper copies if that’s your preferred method. Worried you’re not up-to-date enough for this feature? Fear not, our legacy Integra and InSight displays also generate SmartReports.
Like every year, there’s a lot on the line during the spraying season. With the right tools for the job and an eye for detail, you can have your best year yet.
