Incentives for precision sprayer options

LinkedIn +

KUHN is offering significant incentives to farmers looking to embrace more precision led spraying methods. Both the DELTIS and ALTIS mounted models and LEXIS and METRIS trailed sprayers will now be offered with GPS section control, boom assist, and five other options at a discount. “We want to incentivise precision farming methods that can reduce costs and increase yield. Therefore, KUHN now offers up to £5,000 of additional discounts on options for sprayers,” explains sprayer and non-inversion specialist Rupert Greest.

Further options available include the new AUTOSPRAY droplet control feature, which is unique to KUHN and enables adjustment of the droplet size from the cab. Also included in the scheme are automated filling and rinsing, BOOM ASSIST automatic boom height control, nozzle by nozzle shut-off, automated steering axles and working lights.

Easy to store

The options represent a move to compete with the functionality of self-propelled machines whilst offering the flexibility of having a tractor for the months when a sprayer is not needed. “The versatile, ISOBUS compatible, METRIS is compact with a hitch-to-axle length of 4.4 metres and the choice of 3,200 to 4,100 litre capacities. At just 3.35 metres high when specified with 36 metre booms it is easy to store, light to tow, and may represent a more cost-effective option to farms looking to move away from a self-propelled sprayer,” he says.

The scheme works on a sliding scale, with three precision features triggering a discount of £1,000. Thereafter, each additional precision feature adds a further £1,000 up to a maximum discount of £5,000 when all seven features are included. “The technology is available, and we want customers to take advantage of it to realise the full potential of the KUHN sprayer range,” concludes Mr Greest.
