Raven is once again expanding its class-leading product line to help ag retailers and growers boost their efficiency and profits. The new VSN™ visual guidance system uses state-of-the-art image sensor and processing technologies to deliver quick response and better control. VSN maintains row guidance at industry-required spraying speeds — from the time when crops are just a few inches post-emerge up to a nearly full canopy — without the use of mechanical feelers.

Raven has expanded its logistics and control offering to help ag retailers find more efficiency, and profitability, in their custom application operations. Featuring the integrated suite of AgSync™, Slingshot® and the Viper® 4+ software and hardware; Raven’s Connected Workflow™ allows users to seamlessly and wirelessly connect their office to the field and back again.

Seamless communication — from office to field and back again — gives agriculture professionals the capability to control variables, manage information and make real-time decisions that ultimately save time and money. Technology is power, especially when it’s completely integrated. ​Raven’s Viper 4 + AgSync integration connects operators and the office in a real-time, simple way.
