UX 5201 SmartSprayer trailed sprayer | AMAZONE
Amazone UX SmartSprayer - Spot Farming at the highest level now in field use Amazone started field usage of the UX 5201 SmartSprayer trailed sprayer with its 36 metre boom width during the spring season 2021. The pinpoint application of foliar herbicides is carried out "green in green" in real time during the day-to-day spraying activities of a large arable farm. The camera technology from Bosch detects weeds in row crops and the xarvio™ Agronomic Decision-making Engine (ADE) from BASF Digital Farming Solutions decides on the application. Full-area application of ground applied herbicides from an additional tank is also possible on the same pass with a twin line system. Field trials to date show that the use of this technology reduces herbicide use by up to 90 percent in individual measures, depending on the weed pressure and field conditions. Extensive field trials this year in sugar beet, maize and rape will further qualify the benefits of this technology.
