First NAVIGATOR 5000 deliveredNAVIGATOR 5000 l – DELTA FORCE 28 m
“Important with the right dosage of chemicals from the very beginning …”
Henrik Larsen is breeding 9,000 pigs annually. He is growing crops such as barley, wheat and rye and his soil is a mixture of sand and clay, placing great demands on both the sprayer & the operator.
Previously, Henrik Lassen had a sprayer of another brand. The major reason for changing to the NAVIGATOR 5000 was the new liquid system, DynamicFluid4, and its quick and precise reaction time. The new 28 m boom is equipped with both BoomPrime and AutoSectionControl, and Henrik has high expectations to quickly achieve the right dosage of chemicals where the speed of the tractor/sprayer has to be changed – such as at the beginning of the field, in wedges and areas with obstacles.
The sprayer will spray over 160 ha of cereals 4-5 times every season, and Henrik Lassen feels it makes good sense to do the job himself instead of making use of a contractor. The right time of spraying is of vital importance, and besides, nitrogen management is easier to manage with liquid fertilizer, dependent on the amount of manure each field has been assigned. In this way you keep control of both chemicals and fertilizer.
The tank capacity of 5,000 l was optimal for liquid fertilizer so all in all this solution is estimated to give the best ROI.

Support from dealer
It is most important that you feel confident with your dealer and the sprayer start-up and service he is offering. Henrik Larsen emphasizes these qualifications with his dealer, A. Flensborg in Herning, who has a lot of experience and has status as “HARDI Service Partner,” with focus on spraying technique. On a professional farm it is vital to have support to get everything working in a busy season.
