Sound Investment - Calculate Your Savings

Eliminate misapplication claims and customer complaints with Recon SpreadSense. Our system costs pennies per acre and can save farmers thousands per field. Fertilizer misapplication resulting from one plugged tube (2 deflectors) on a broadcast boom over a 160-acre field can cost the farmer a lost revenue of $4,000 in corn, $3,000 in soybean, and $1,650 in wheat. Now that’s a sound investment. 

*Based on a 70 ft boom and 50% yield reduction in areas of the field where fertilizer is misapplied.

Benefits

REDUCE OPERATOR STRESS

Ensure accurate distribution of products across your floater and increase your efficiency by not having to visually detect flow issues so you can improve the effectiveness of the applicator.

ELIMINATE MISAPPLICATION CLAIMS

A blocked run can cost thousands of dollars in insurance claims. Reduce the risk of misapplied product and customer complaints with reliable blockage monitoring.

TRUSTED TECHNOLOGY WITH PROVEN PERFORMANCE

Monitor machine performance to ensure optimal application. Identify other issues affecting your floater. With Recon SpreadSense you can measure individual deflector flow status and relative flow across the entire boom.

EASY TO INSTALL

The acoustic sensors are easy to install on the back of each deflector which doesn’t cause any disruption to product flow.

Along with our other Recon flow monitoring and Engage section control solutions, Intelligent Ag is a proud advocate of 4R Nutrient Stewardship management practices. In particular, Recon SpreadSense enhances the ability of an applicator to apply at the Right Rate in the Right Place by enabling an operator to view the real time status of flow throughout the entire machine. This prevents skips and streaks in the field that may occur for a variety of reasons. You can learn more about 4R Nutrient Stewardship at https://nutrientstewardship.org/

   
How It Works

Our acoustic sensor technology provides reliable, real-time flow detection. The acoustic sensors are easy to install on the back of each deflector to listen for material flow and send sound pulses through auditory tubes, similar to a stethoscope. The data is collected by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU), which displays the information on an iPad® in the cab. If there’s a blockage anywhere in the system, you’ll know.
