Raven is known for their ground-breaking ideas and products that improve the position of growers around the world. From field computers to boom controls, GPS guidance to steering systems, Raven is leading the way for precision ag technology that delivers in the field.
WHY SHOULD YOU FARM WITH GPS?
GPS reduces expenses by calculating the right amount of chemicals needed for your fields. Not only can GPS instruct your planter to shut off individual rows when it is traveling over an area that has already been planted, but GPS can also control sprayers and will turn off certain nozzles when a sprayer is covering plants that have already been sprayed. Harvest crops faster and more precisely with GPS-equipped machines. For example, if you planted seeds using RTK corrections, GPS can tell exactly where your crop is located when you return to harvest. GPS increases productivity by reducing operator fatigue. Assisted steering systems can reduce fatigue because you don’t have to concentrate on constantly driving a vehicle at all times.

Leaving your boom too high can lose your application in the wind, while having the boom too low can result in damage to your crops or the boom itself. Leverage industry-leading radar sensory technology to pair simultaneous ground and canopy detection together for optimal an optimal height for spraying, maximizing product performance. XRT pressure-based controls enable smoother movements and quicker reaction time while center rack stability technology with dampers grant the operator complete control, maximizing the life of your boom.
Spray with 2.5 times more nozzle accuracy than comparable systems, with the Hawkeye® 2 nozzle control system. Equipped to provide consistency across the length of the boom, Hawkeye® 2 ensures precise droplet coverage to optimize your application and input costs. Hawkeye® 2 builds on the previous generation with individual nozzle control, reducing skips/overlaps and increasing application quality. Controlled, consistent droplet rate and size also reduces drift, ultimately contributing to the ideal application rate for your sprayer.
Paired with Viper® 4, VSN Visual Guidance utilizes a non-contact stereo vision camera to traverse crop rows, freeing the operator to focus on the more variable aspects of application control. VSN maximizes acre coverage while minimizing crop damage, providing a simplified machine operation for your application. Reducing driver fatigue adds usable time to the workday, allowing up to 20% more acres of application per day.
