The second installment of our Agronomic Design Insights video series focuses on spraying and features Case IH sprayer expert Mark Burns and Greg Kruger, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Crop Specialist.
Have you completed your planned applications this season? Have Case IH Patriot® sprayers helped you be in fields at the optimal moment?
When spraying, producers should consider six drivers that impact application quality:
- Accurate spray rate
- Optimal chemical droplet size
- Consistent coverage
- No skips or overlaps
- Drift control
These Agronomic Design features are all incorporated into Patriot sprayer design. Patriot sprayers were designed based on these drivers. Case IH Agronomic Design combines agronomic principles, our expertise and input from producers to help producers maximize their yield potential.
High-quality and timely application is crucial to successful crop production. University research shows uncontrolled weeds can result in corn yield losses of more than one bushel per day, and up to 1 percent soybean yield loss per day.
