DirectCommand® has revolutionized the application management process, giving you reliable application rate control that will help you minimize waste.
Complete control over liquid and granular application
Your resources are valuable and important. Whether you have an NH3 toolbar, Liquid N sidedress unit, sprayer, spreader or electric starter fertilizer pump on your planter, DirectCommand will transform the application process, allowing for maximum control.
- Eliminate overapplication, overlap, spray drift and application gaps.
- Increase productivity during tight application windows.
- Reduce fuel costs and field compaction by applying multiple products at one time.
- Target product application through crop sensing and prescription application strategies.
- Document all field application data and provide simple reporting.
AutoSwath for Liquid and Granular
DirectCommand’s AutoSwath feature reduces over application and product waste by automatically turning the applicator (liquid or granular) on/off based on field boundaries and already-applied areas as it passes over the field. The system reduces input costs and increases application accuracy by minimizing skips and overlaps at end rows, fence rows and along waterways.
DirectCommand offers total liquid control with variable rate application, chemical injection, AutoSwath™ and more.
Spinner Spreader Control
DirectCommand simplifies spreader control by providing automated calibration and storage of critical settings. The system features include variable rate control, automatic section control and closed loop spinner speed control of up to five products. DirectCommand reads ground speed and automatically adjusts product flow to match target application rate.
Recording and Reporting Application Data
DirectCommand automatically records application activities, including applied areas, product volume and more. This data can easily be downloaded into SMS™ Software for analysis and can help accurately calculate input needs for the following year.
Smart Report simplifies application reporting (both liquid and granular), providing an easy way to generate detailed application reports for government record keeping. Reports provide location, product information, applied totals, field areas, as-applied maps and field boundaries.
Manure Application and Reporting
DirectCommand records applied application rates, offers Rx mapping and simplified reporting using Smart Report.
