When it comes to sprayers John Deere is bringing a lot of new things to the market. At the product introduction I spoke with Brent Madden who not only works for John Deere but also farms with his family in Iowa. I asked him to put his farmer hat on first and tell us about some of the new sprayer options from John Deere as well as those related to precision ag. He points out how the GreenStar 2 (GS2) rate controller has been updated to handle applying anhydrous ammonia or certain liquid fertilizers.
Then when I asked him to put his farmer hat on he says the new Swath Control Pro for planters has him really excited. He says they’re looking forward to using it in the coming spring.
