New Holland Adds NutraBoss To Self-Propelled Sprayers

New Holland has added some nutrient delivery innovation to its self-propelled sprayer line-up.

Earlier this year, the company reached an agreement to give its sprayer customers access to the NutraBoss dual fertilizer placement tool. In this video interview from the 2016 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, New Holland’s Jarrod Angstadt explains how the lightweight NutraBoss applicators can be used to evenly distribute nutrients near the root zone of any row crop.

Iowa-based NutraBoss touts its tool as an effective alternative to heavier and more cumbersome Y-Drops, as well as a key contributor to effective 4R nutrient stewardship. Each units weighs only nine pounds and offers a single point hook-up on existing booms. It can also be used for split applications.

Angstadt says the lightweight applicators “enable New Holland to go out to 120 feet on a boom and still have excellent boom stability and reliability.” He adds: “It’s a huge benefit for producers from an efficiency standpoint. They are able to cover more acres in less time and make less passes in the field.”
