The NL5000 utilizes New Leader’s G5 technology, including 16-section swath width control, ½ width spreading, last pass control, boundary spreading and two-product variable rate precision application technology.
“From an agronomic standpoint, the NL5000 G5 opens up opportunities for farmers to precisely apply top dressed nitrogen in-crop or augment their fertility program with a 100% autonomous spreading solution,” says Robert Saik, CEO of DOT Farm Solutions. “To our knowledge, this is the first large-scale fully robotic fertilizer spreader in the world.”
This spring saw the Dot robotic system seed and spray thousands of acres on several Saskatchewan farms. Now DOT will have variable-rate precision fertilizer capabilities as well.
