Raven Showcases New Products At #ARA2016

Lizzy Schultz

Raven Industries was at this year’s Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) Conference & Expo to showcase three main products during this year’s event.

“We have a long history with ARA, they’re a great customer of ours and we’ve been providing a lot of technology to make their businesses more efficient for many years, and this year we’re just bringing them the next evolution of tools to help them better serve the farmer,” said Tim Heins, Director of Product Management, during an interview with Chuck at the 2016 conference.

Raven’s Hawkeye Nozzle Control System has been on the market for two years, providing a pressure based product control system that allows for precise sprayer application and a reduction in spray drift, allowing farmers to get the most out of every nozzle. Individual pulsing valves control each nozzle, giving a consistent spray pattern as speed and conditions change.

Also on display was the AgEagle RX60 UAV, the drone distributed through Raven that offers growers the ability to greatly improve field insights.

“You can fly your field, get an NDVI image and start to see crop stresses before you would normally,” said Heins. “It’s a great tool that provides information that may help you make some timely decisions on your operation.”

An exciting new product on display was the Raven Rate Control Module (RCM), which offers the next generation in precision application rate control. It uses Raven’s innovative control algorithms, making it the most precise application controller on the market today.
