The CropSaver automatic applicator is fully integrated into the New Holland square baler ISOBUS system. The applicator takes sensor readings from the bale an its own system to apply product at a fixed rate or variable rate per tonne of crop. The balers performance is continually monitored and the applicator reacts to any changes in output. The information is displayed directly onto the balers terminal weather this is via the tractors ISOBUS terminal of a standalone baler terminal.
The automatic applicator comes as a complete package, and includes twin star wheel moisture sensors, a 435 litre tank, high output spray bar with up to 9 nozzles infra red crop detection at the baler pick-up, digital flow meter, single high output pump with twin solenoid rate control
Based on the parameters of bale weight, length, time per bale and accurate on the move moisture sensing the applicator will automatically stop, start and adjust application rate without any operator interaction
The system is variable rate and will run in combination as required to apply liquid based on the balers performance and moisture readings. As crops flow or moisture changes the application will adjust automatically by changing the solenoid rate to apply liquids at the desired amount
The automatic applicator can be upgraded with bale management systems or Alfalfa (Lucern) feed analysis
