Precision Agriculture
Application Equipment 
  • With a new season generally brings a few updates in our operation, a couple of which is updating some of our application equipment. One of our updates is a new Airmax Terra Gator TG8400B, it will have full VRT capability and a maximum accurate rate capacity of 1200 lbs/ac at 10 mph. Holmes Agro also partners some custom application acres with Andrew Gallaugher, a local grower and professional applicator.
  • Andrew will also have a new machine for the season with his RoGator R G1100C with the all new G5 spinner box. This new spinner has all the capabilities of the G4 we have gained a great amount of confidence in with the additional feature of Swath Control. Along with up to 120 feet spread patterns and VRT capabilities, this is the first spinner on the market to offer swath control and last pass capabilities with higher rate capacities. Simply put it is maximizing placement of the fertilizer with 16 section shutoff only spreading material where needed with minimizing overlap. See the image below.
  • Overall we strive to keep as up to date as possible in application technology to offer you the best services available to provide the best return on your inputs.
