Caiman and ONE SMART SPRAY announce innovation in selective spraying during Agroactiva 2024

Following its innovative tradition, Caimán announced an alliance with ONE SMART SPRAY, a joint venture between Bosch and BASF, for the integration and commercialization of a selective and intelligent spraying solution in its SP Dual Spraying System self-propelled sprayer line. The system will be presented during Agroactiva 2024, held from June 5 to 8 in Armstrong, Santa Fe, Argentina.

The ONE SMART SPRAY technology, which will be factory-integrated into the new sprayer, uses a camera system and artificial intelligence to provide real-time weed detection and selective spraying, applying herbicides only where weeds are present instead of across the entire field. The technology also offers digital and agronomic intelligence tools from xarvio® Digital Farming Solutions, including digital maps of weed distribution and applied areas, application windows, sensitivity levels, automatic documentation, among other functions. Additionally, the system allows for day and night spraying in any lighting condition, thanks to an LED lighting system specially developed for it, providing exceptional performance in both pre-emergence (“green on brown”) and post-emergence (“green on green”) applications.

"Throughout its history, CAIMÁN has always committed to superior quality and technology, and this innovation is another step in that direction. Thanks to this technology, our new SP DSS is a DUAL SPRAYER capable of working in selective and conventional spraying independently or simultaneously, allowing Argentine agriculture to reach a new level of efficiency and competitiveness," says Alejandro Flotron, commercial manager of CAIMÁN. "We are excited to bring Argentine producers a solution that integrates all the technological and agronomic expertise of Bosch and BASF, offering them a simple and revolutionary proposal: clean fields every time, with maximum herbicide savings. The result is a more economical, profitable, and sustainable production where everyone wins," adds Rodrigo Lima, Director of ONE SMART SPRAY for Latin America.

Visitors to Agroactiva 2024 will be able to see the integration and functionalities of the solution up close at the Caimán stand, in lot 244 A. The new Caimán SP DSS self-propelled sprayer with the integrated ONE SMART SPRAY system will be available for sale starting in 2025.
