Hagie AirScout Edition PhotoHagie Mfg. is known for its innovative crop protection solutions, so it makes sense they’d be looking for a partnership in AirScout, a company that combines ground scouting with ariel photography.  Together the companies are please to provide customers state-of-the-art field prescription services with capability for timely applications management.

Disease pressure can create crop demise and result in significant financial impact. Through marrying advanced aerial technology with capability to perform full season applications as needed, growers and agricultural retailers are able to optimize soil and crop health for maximum yield potential. The perfect complement to traditional field-based scouting services, AirScout’s Application Program utilizes advanced thermal technology and ADVI imagery to build precise field prescription maps to be transmitted to a specially designed 2016 Hagie AirScout Edition STS unit.

The fully customized applicator will utilize technologies including Raven’s Slingshot® wireless tool, 360 Yield Center’s “Undercover“ and “Y-Drop” devices. The unit also features a modified tank that is divided into four sections and a plumbing manifold that allows various loading options. The machine’s dual pumps and manifolds allow for two entirely different application processes to occur at the same time.

For growers in Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois utilizing Air Scout’s services, the Hagie AirSout Edition unit will be available this summer.  See the tour schedule and find out more visit www.hagieairscout.com.
