IntelligentAg’s Recon SpraySense looks at individual nozzle performance to ensure optimal spraying


Efficiency performs an vital function in nearly each space of farming and IntelligentAg is trying to maximize sprayer effectivity with their new product, the Recon SpraySense. As the saying goes, you don’t know what you don’t know and Recon SpraySense is trying to uncover that information by offering a feed of data on the performance of every sprayer nozzle.

Up till now farmers had been, for essentially the most half, solely ready to get performance info on the increase’s common, whereas though helpful, it doesn’t inform the entire story of what’s taking place.

The new product was showcased at Canada’s Farm Show and Alan MacDonald was on-site and talks concerning the significance of monitoring every individual nozzle.

“What we’re doing is we’re measuring each the stress and the movement at each tip. There may be some variability there, after all, based mostly on whether or not there’s a blockage or not, however we’re utilizing that to establish and what’s the precise, precise high quality of that spray sample that’s coming off of there. And then that impacts droplet measurement as properly,” says MacDonald.

Before Recon SpraySense, MacDonald says many farmers would do a cup check at the start of the season to establish if there are any points, however that solely tells farmers what is occurring at that second, blockages that occur throughout the season wouldn’t be in any other case detected, making different nozzles make up for performance.

He says, presently the system is operational for Hypro-nozzle our bodies, however it’s their intention to have it accessible for functions on each Wilger and TeeJet as properly.
