Spray Assist app to aid application on target
Syngenta demonstrated its new Spray Assist app at LAMMA.
The simple to use app links to live local weather data, to analyse the factors that influence accurate application and potential risk of spray drift, including wind, rain or frost. The app suggests techniques to enable sprayer operators to mitigate risks or alter practices.
Demonstrating a new beta-test update of Spray Assist at LAMMA 2020, Syngenta Application Specialist, Scott Cockburn, highlighted the potential for digital technology to provide up to date decision support solutions.
“Syngenta application trials research has shown the potential for even small tweaks in sprayer set-up and operation to make significant differences in results achieved, including grass weed control and fungicide treatments," he said.
“Sprayer operators also play a huge role in managing the potential risk of spray drift - to ensure sprays hit the intended target and give the best performance.
“Spray Assist will further help them make better informed decisions and tailor their application techniques to optimise results.”
Users can enter plans for cropping, locations, and product use and application timings. Further personalising the data with the farm’s application equipment enables advanced algorithms to provide guidance on the most appropriate available sprayer setup in any selected situation, for the forecasted weather conditions.
