Spraying your crops is a tricky job. For starters, there is always a specific window to hit that has to match your crop stage and the weather conditions. It’s also a matter of proper application. Not only are pesticides and herbicides high value products, but they have to be applied properly to work. All of this has to take place on some rough terrain. It could be wet, bumpy, hilly or all of the above, so you need a machine that can handle all of the above. It wouldn’t be so bad either if those hours spent in the sprayer were comfortable.
Those are some of the thoughts that went into New Holland’s Guardian front boom sprayer. It’s the latest offering in the New Holland sprayer line. I spoke to Tyler Roberts about the sprayer at the 2012 Crop Production Week Show in Saskatoon.
