RACINE, Wisconsin (August 21, 2019) 

Case IH is expanding its portfolio of high-efficiency spraying options with the new AutoBoom XRT automatic boom height control — now available on Patriot and Trident series sprayers. The technology automatically adjusts the booms by using a combination of chassis monitoring and sensors to function as a “look ahead” and detect changes in terrain. The radar sensors can be configured to detect the location of the ground or crop canopy, maintain a level spray platform and maximize boom life.

AutoBoom XRT automatic boom height control is designed to help operators cover more acres effectively per pass and provide consistent, accurate application across every inch of ground. This option is ideal for producers with longer spray booms, as the longer the boom, the more challenging it is for operators to maintain level and consistent application. AutoBoom XRT automatic boom height control comes with three radar sensors strategically placed along the boom, with the option to add more for a total of up to seven, for maximum points of monitoring.
