Intelligent Nozzle Control Introduced by John Deere

Gain greater accuracy with the John Deere ExactApply intelligent nozzle control system.

“The new ExactApply system was developed for producers and ag service providers who seek a higher level of control of product applications, especially improved application efficacy and accuracy in all field shapes and sizes,” says Doug Felter, product marketing manager, crop protection and nutrient solutions.   

“Another important feature with the ExactApply is John Deere’s Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) system that offers three times the pulsing frequency of traditional PWM systems on a wide variety of nozzles,” he adds. “This allows the sprayer to run at a consistent pressure and droplet size, regardless of the sprayer speed and application flow rate, for improved spray coverage across the entire field.”

Six key benefits:

  1. The ability to switch spraying between two preselected nozzles with the push of a button from inside the cab. This capability also increases the range of application to achieve consistent droplet size.
  2. The ability to automatically vary the rate across the entire boom, ensuring the correct amount of material is applied to the right area of the field, even while turning.
  3. The reduction of the number of nozzles needed because of range increases on each nozzle.
  4. An alert to the operator when a single nozzle becomes plugged.
  5. LED lighting on each individual nozzle for improved visibility of spray pattern in low-light conditions.
  6. Full variable-rate and shut-off functionality at the nozzle (every 15 to 20 inches), which is an improvement over sprayers equipped with John Deere Section Control. 

“ExactApply is fully integrated with the GreenStar 2630 Display and SprayStar, making it compatible with the entire suite of John Deere precision and data-management products our application customers need,” says Felter. “It offers significant improvements in spray performance, coverage, and accuracy, especially on point rows and irregular-shaped fields.”

The system is compatible with all boom sizes equipped with stainless steel plumbing. To learn more, contact your local John Deere dealer or visit
