How it Works
Simple. Reliable. Our acoustic sensor technology provides reliable, real-time flow detection. The acoustic sensors detect material flow and send sound pulses through auditory tubes, similar to a stethoscope. The data is collected by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU), which displays the information on an iPad® in the cab. If there’s a blockage anywhere in the system, you’ll know.
Recon SpreadSense costs pennies per acre and can save farmers thousands per field. Fertilizer misapplication resulting from one plugged tube (2 deflectors) on a broadcast boom over a 160-acre field can cost the farmer a lost revenue of $4,000 in corn, $3,000 in soybean, and $1,650 in wheat.
*Based on a 70 ft boom and 50% yield reduction in areas of the field where fertilizer is misapplied.
