John Deere has introduced a new high capacity self-propelled sprayer, the 4930, to help growers and applicators get more done in less time. Horsepower on the 4930 sprayer has been increased to 325 horsepower and it is now outfitted with a 1200 gallon high flow solution system. The sprayer is designed to maintain spray speeds in soft or hilly terrain.

Swath Control Pro is a new solution available from John Deere Ag Management Solutions (AMS). With the GreenStar 2 (GS2) display, the boom sections automatically turn on and off at end rows, waterways and other obstacles, helping the 4930 sprayer save time and eliminate waste. The new system controls individual boom sections that automatically turn on or shut off nozzles, based on a global positioning system (GPS) coverage map that is created as the sprayer goes through the field.

Boom Trac Pro is a boom levelling system which maintains the boom at a constant height over the crop. Sensors constantly monitor the distance from the boom to the ground and adjust the boom automatically, eliminating the guesswork involved with manual control. This boom levelling system assists consistent chemical application and greatly reduces boom to soil interaction through constantly changing field conditions.
