AMES, IOWA, April 28, 2010 – Today, Ag Leader Technology,
Inc., a leader in the development of precision farming solutions,
added dual product control for application operations
to the popular EDGE display. Dual product control is the latest
piece of functionality added to an already feature-packed,
year-round precision farming display.
Dual product control in the EDGE display will support sprayer
control of a liquid carrier and a single injection pump. Like
other Ag Leader products, the EDGE display’s DirectCommand system now interfaces to the Raven
Sidekick chemical injection pump for complete control over chemical injection applications. The
EDGE display and CAN module will replace the Sidekick Console, directly connecting to the injection
pump. Automated prime and calibration routines as well as advanced sensor diagnostics are part of
the new functionality. This addition can be used for herbicide, fungicide, and insecticide as well as
nitrogen stabilizer injection application.
Granular Fertilizer Application
Dual product control also means two channels of granular product control in the EDGE display.
Operators have the ability to apply two products simultaneously at varying rates, either manually or
using a prescription. The most common applications of this feature will be in spinner spreader and
“We continually strive to provide practical solutions to enhance user-experience and productivity,”
says Howard. “The addition of dual product application control combined with existing EDGE
display functionality provides an economical solution with the tools to achieve this.”
Additional functionality of the EDGE display includes SeedCommand, DirectCommand, yield monitoring,
guidance and steering capabilities. In addition, the EDGE display is plug compatible with Ag
Leader’s INTEGRA and InSight displays; this gives users who wish to upgrade in the future a seamless
