About

The Smart-Apply® Intelligent Spray Control System™ uses LIDAR to scan each plant or tree in front of the sprayer creating a density map of the target, then algorithms calculate the exact amount needed. As the sprayer passes, each spray nozzle becomes its own variable rate sprayer, applying just the right amount per nozzle spray zone. Published research concludes: -47-73% reduction of spray consumption -40-87% reduction in spray loss beyond tree canopies -Up to 87% less airborne drift -68-93% reduction in spray loss on the ground -Equal or better crop protection The system also offers: -Tree count -Tree size -Amount of chemicals applied per tree -Target spraying based on filters -Density heat maps -Comparison of density heat maps This add-on kit is available through dealers and OEM's worldwide.
