John Deere has introduced a new See & Spray™ Premium performance upgrade kit for John Deere self-propelled sprayers, the next addition in the See & Spray lineup. The kit uses a vision system powered by artificial intelligence that can help farmers gain cost efficiency and combat herbicide resistance with precise application by only spraying the weeds and not the entire field.
- Save on non-residual herbicide use
- Reduce water usage and tender stops
- Reduce crop stress and improve yields
- Select targeted or broadcast applications
Less herbicide cost. More profitability.
See & Spray Premium is a Performance Upgrade Kit that can revolutionize how you use your current qualified sprayer (MY2018 or newer 400, 600 and R-Series sprayers with a 120-foot boom). It can help you precisely manage weeds to:
- Increase yields
- Improve cost efficiencies
- Create more profitability
See & Spray Premium sees, targets, and kills in-season weeds using advanced cameras and machine learning that distinguishes crops from weeds and selectively target sprays only the weeds. Shown to reduce non-residual herbicide use similar to other See & Spray technologies, See & Spray premium also delivers a hit-rate comparable to traditional broadcast spraying … all at operating speeds up to 12 mph. That means less herbicide, less costs, and less impact to your crops and your land.
See & Spray Premium is a single tank system that simplifies tendering for the operator. While See & Spray Premium is not dual-product capable it offers many of the same benefits of sprayers equipped with dual-tank capable See & Spray Ultimate technology.
As the sprayer moves through the field, See & Spray Premium utilizes advanced stability provided by John Deere BoomTrac Pro™ 2.0. This technology stabilizes the sprayer boom as cameras mounted to the boom capture clear images of the field.
Within milliseconds, a machine learning model uses multiple images captured by the cameras to differentiate weed from crop. Once a weed is detected, a command is sent to the John Deere ExactApply™ nozzle to spray it. In addition, See & Spray Premium can be used to generate a weed pressure map for the field that was sprayed in the John Deere Operations Center™.
Currently, See & Spray Premium is offered for MY18 and newer 400 and 600 Series Sprayers, as well as R-Series models. The upgrade kit requires the machine to have a factory-installed ExactApply system or ExactApply Performance Upgrade Kit with 15- or 20-inch spacing and a 120-foot steel boom.
