SmartSprayer in use on sugar beet

The AMAZONE UX 5201 SmartSprayer trailed sprayer integrates camera technology and AI image processing from Bosch and crop establishment know-how from xarvio™ in a unique crop protection system. With field-specific threshold values and simultaneous full-width and spot application in a single pass, herbicide costs can be reduced by up to 70%.

Successful field use

The UX 5201 SmartSprayer integrates three main components for the spot application: scanning, decision-making and application. The camera and image processing technology, developed by Bosch, scans the entire field, regardless of environmental influences, by day and by night, thanks to the integrated light module. The sensor systems distinguish between growing crops and weeds at working speeds of up to 12 km/h. xarvio™ selects an application in real time, based on the weed density. The xarvio™ agronomic decision-making engine takes into account the crop, the timing of application and the customer and field-specific weed treatment strategy. Pulse-wide frequency modulation valves (PWFM) with SpotFan nozzles spaced 25 cm apart enable maximum savings.

SmartSprayer dual tank system

The UX 5201 SmartSprayer is a spot spraying system that can be used pre- and post-emergence, thereby enabling greater savings. In addition, farmers can save on the number of passes and costs using the innovative dual tank system in combination with the FT-P 1502 front tank. A second spray line enables the simultaneous full-area application of ground-applied herbicides, insecticides or fungicides. As well as improved cost-efficiency and multifunctional utilisation, a major advantage of the system is its environmental friendliness.

Spot application via the spot nozzle bodies

Extremely small application zones

The following practical advantages are provided:

  • Instructions for action are based on the enormous volume of data held by the xarvio decision-making engine
  • Real-time system with extremely small application zones
  • Maximum precision even at large working widths in conjunction with active boom guidance and active swing damping
  • Technology ready for practical use
  • Enormous potential for savings on plant protection agents
