3Rive 3D Keeps up with Faster Planters

Cindy Zimmerman

Keeping up with high speed planters like John Deere’s ExactEmerge can be a challenge for in-furrow applications of products like FMC’s Capture insecticide, but 3RIVE 3D application technology makes it happen.

Bill Voorhees of central Illinois has used 3Rive 3D system on his operation for three years. “We’re planting at eight miles an hour and we were surprised to see that it left a continuous ribbon of foam across the field,” he said during an interview at Commodity Classic. That foam is key to covering more ground in less time with fewer refills. “The insecticide system holds almost 500 acres of product,” says Voorhees. “It’s a simple, clean system.”
