Driverless equipment – once a pipe dream – is here. The agriculture industry has been moving along the path to precision technology and automation for years. All along, innovators at the leading edge were thinking into the future, with the goal of truly driverless equipment, which would free growers from the cab and allow them to increase productivity and efficiency. Well, that future is now, with the launch of Raven’s OMNiPOWER™ system. This article originally appeared in the November 2021 issue of CropLife magazine.

Consistent boom height is important to combating weed resistance for three reasons: to reduce uneven spray dispersion if the boom is too low, to reduce spray droplet drift if the boom is too high and to reduce damage to the boom or crop if the boom is on uneven terrain. A recent study found that Raven AutoBoom® XRT holds the boom closer to the target height with less variability, ensuring consistency.
