Lemken announced today the development of a self-propelled Lemken field sprayer. This product is now being launched under the name of Nova. With a chassis with versatile adjustment options and a new automatic boom control, this self-propelled sprayer with tank volumes of 4,800 or 7,200 liters (1,268 or 1,902 gallons) and working widths from 24 to 39 meters (78 to 127 feet) will be available starting in mid-2020.

The application technology is controlled via the Lemken MegaSpray on the CCI 800 or CCI 1200 terminal. Functions include width section and application rate controls, GPS track guidance and job management. The agrirouter, the new cross-vendor data exchange platform, handles communications with the farm management system back in the office.

The chassis of the Nova self-propelled sprayer features telescopic axles for flexible track widths from 1.8 to 2.3 meters (5.9 to 7.5 feet). High ground clearance provides protection for crops, with a maximum of height of 1.6 (5.2 feet) meters.

Lemken’s AdaptiveBalancingControl (ABC) with automatic, proactive guidance keeps the boom in an optimum position and maintains the correct distance to the target surface. Up to five sensors ensure that the individual boom arms adapt directly to uneven terrain or changes in the crop. A circulation line with individual nozzle control within the boom provides for precise application and absolutely minimal residue.
