The SprayMate Plus is compact, yet still packed with all the powerful rate control and calculating features you’ve come to expect from Micro-Trak. It is built to fit farmers’ changing needs with flexible system options like PWM control and three-way section valves, and includes several special new features that ensure quick valve response to changes in vehicle motion and to minimize disappointing under-applications. Valuable console data is secured by using the “Supervisor Lock-Out” feature to prevent deletion of critical calibration figures and data.

Ag Leader's Hydraulic Down Force system ensures seeds are planted at the proper depth by instantly adjusting to changes in soil types. That means consistent emergence across the field. No "ramping" effect experienced with slower-responding air bag down force systems. The system's dual channel control allows down force to be set differently for planter wings and the center section of the planter where soil compaction is common.
