Ag Leader adds nozzle-by-nozzle control – RightSpot™ – to Its full-farm lineup
Ag Leader is growing its full-farm solution lineup with a new addition to its DirectCommand application product line, trusted by farmers for nearly two decades. RightSpot offers nozzle-by-nozzle sprayer control for consistent and effective coverage plus added flexibility for a wider speed range, greater productivity, and increased accuracy.
“With input costs and regulations rising, farmers will need to take a closer look at their sprayer and application technology,” states John Howard, Crop Care Product Manager. “Adding nozzle-by-nozzle control to their existing sprayer provides immediate financial and agronomic benefits.
“RightSpot is very precise at applying the right rate and pressure desired across varying speeds and field terrain. It means maximizing the effectiveness of their inputs with the right droplet size and coverage to give the crop what it needs while minimizing wasted product and time.”
Traditional versus RightSpot
A traditional sprayer regulates application rate by increasing or decreasing boom pressure as the travel speed of the sprayer changes. This means reducing speed in rough soil conditions or around obstacles like terraces and waterways, which results in a larger than desired droplet size and reduced chemical efficacy. In addition, increasing speed in good field conditions results in a smaller than desired droplet size increasing the risk of chemical drift on to adjacent crops.
With RightSpot, flow rate and pressure are controlled independently. Individual pulsing nozzles maintain a consistent, user-defined boom pressure across a wide range of speed. The operator can speed up or slow down without sacrificing the droplet size or coverage applied. Automatic shut-off at a nozzle level allows the operator to complete the application on the most efficient path versus taking extra time tracing obstacles. Headlands, terraces, and curves are also accounted for with turn compensation maintaining consistent rate applied on the inner and outer portions of the boom.
The InCommand display gives you instant visibility in the cab to your sprayer’s performance.
“Spraying crops is one of the most demanding jobs on the farm. It’s extremely time-sensitive and often requires more passes through the field than any other machine in the operation,” John adds. “In developing RightSpot, we set out to do what Ag Leader does best: make the grower’s job easier with a simple, year-round interface that enables them to achieve precise application control while increasing productivity.”
RightSpot is controlled through the year-round InCommand 1200 display for complete visibility inside and outside the cab.
Come to Ag Leader’s booth at the 2022 National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky to see RightSpot, the latest in Ag Leader’s full farm solution. RightSpot will be available for sale through Ag Leader’s dealer network in late summer 2022. For more information, visit agleader.com/rightspot/.
