Step up your game in herbicide application

What’s New: These sprayers and accessories let you do more and do it right.

No two people have the same needs when applying pesticides, especially herbicides. Maybe your idea of upgrading your approach to weed control in 2021 is an improved pull-behind sprayer. Or maybe you want a self-propelled sprayer with a more dependable engine.

Perhaps what you’re looking for is a more precise nozzle. Companies that design and build this equipment have you covered in new products they’re releasing for 2021.

Easy chemical loading and thorough mixing are hallmarks of Bestway sprayers. The tradition continues in the FieldPro IV series. The pull-behind sprayer can be outfitted with several features, including AutoGlide automatic boom height adjustment and the V-ride boom suspension system. If you’re not ready for a self-propelled sprayer, here is a model worth checking out.

Maybe you’re looking for a self-propelled sprayer with plenty of power and dependable engines. Equipment Technologies believes it has what you’re looking for. Their new lineup of Apache models includes sprayers equipped with new Cummins diesel engines.

The engine builder touts them as extremely dependable and well-suited for use in self-propelled sprayers. Apache also is discontinuing the Bruin name, but offering a new model, the Apache HS 1100, which includes features from Bruin sprayers, including a hydrostatic transmission.

Technology is what Raven, the South Dakota-based precision ag company, is all about. It reaches new heights with its Automatic Row Turnaround feature, which allows high-clearance sprayers operating in tall corn to turn automatically and accurately, damaging less corn while making the turn for the next round.
