Precision Spraying Pays Environmental Benefits

Farm Industry News will be holding a “Precision Technology for Sprayers” seminar at the National Farm Machinery show Friday afternoon – the last in their series of seminars at the show. Several companies, including John Deere, will be giving presentations on their technology at the seminar.

Kim Fletcher with Deere’s Ag Management Solutions gave me a preview of her presentation yesterday. “When it comes to precision applications with John Deere, we primarily focus on the operator, their operation and the environment,” Kim says.

When it comes to the environment, Kim says Deere’s Swath Control Pro is automatic section control for growers, “So they’re not putting as much chemical on the fields and they’re saving on the environment plus they’re saving in the pocketbook too because they’re not buying as much chemical.”
