Are you dependent on the schedules of custom applicators and think you can’t afford your own spraying equipment? Think again.
When insect counts are high or disease is invading your field, it’s critical you act fast to protect your crop. And if responding to a pest threat is contingent on fitting into the often overbooked schedule of a custom applicator, costly delays are likely.
In farming, delays reduce productivity and potential yield. Owning your own application equipment can eliminate these costly delays and improve overall efficiency.
“I haven’t talked to any producer who regrets buying their own sprayer,” said Mark Burns, Case IH application equipment marketing manager. “Sprayers like the Case IH Patriot or the Trident applicator can be a money-saving investment for a producer whose acreage and number of applications justify the purchase.”
Making the move to ownership may be more affordable than you think. With the broadest line of application equipment in the company’s history, Case IH has a sprayer that will help you maximize application efficiency, productivity and comfort on your farming operation.
The industry’s fastest-converting combination applicator is the Trident™ 5550. It can go from liquid to dry, or vice versa, in as few as 42 minutes so you can cover acres at the right time.
High-efficiency sprayers include Patriot® series sprayers and Miller Nitro® series sprayers. Patriot sprayers offer a cab-forward, rear-engine configuration that optimizes weight distribution and provides for earlier field access. This gives you timely application, regardless of the terrain or season. With industry-leading ground clearance, large product tank options and long boom options, Miller Nitro series’ front boom sprayers are among the most precise on the market today. These sprayers also offer a four-wheel steering option and tight turn radius for maximum efficiency in the field.
Whichever sprayer you choose, integrated precision farming technology options further help increase productivity and efficiency year-round.
With the multitude of Case IH spray equipment options available, the real question may be: How can you afford to not own your own spray equipment?
