OptRx Crop Sensor Rate Table Provides More Flexibility

Insights WeeklyDuring my recent visit to Ag Leader Technology I learned about the new Crop Sensor Rate Table that is now available from Chad Fick, Product Specialist. This new feature provides more application flexibility

This functionality offered through the DirectCommand™ system on the INTEGRA™ display allows producers to utilize the OptRx™ crop sensors to apply the agrochemicals they need on-the-go at the rates necessary for optimum performance.

OptRx crop sensors work by shining light on the crop canopy and reading the light reflected back to determine the crop health, also known as Vegetative Index. Working with agronomists or crop consultants, farmers can use OptRx to improve the application of any agrochemical to any crop that needs a variable rate. The new Crop Sensor Rate Table allows growers to choose a Vegetative Index range and assign the recommended rates based on those ranges.

Growers with the INTEGRA display can take advantage of the Crop Sensor Rate Table by updating their firmware to version 3.3.
