NORAC Hybrid Mode™ Receives US and European Patent Approval

10 Sep 2023


imageHybrid Mode™, NORAC’s newly patented in-crop spraying feature eliminates the need for the operator to take manual control of the boom while spraying in adverse situations such as lodged, thin, and uneven crops. “The development of Hybrid Mode™ for our automatic spray height control systems has resulted in a higher level of operator convenience than was previously available in the market,” said Danea Armstrong, Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Service for NORAC Systems International Inc.

Hybrid Mode™ tracks both the crop canopy and the soil surface simultaneously to calculate a “virtual top of crop” for more accurate control. This reduces boom height error and increases boom stability; therefore increasing the amount of time the boom is at the target spray height. NORAC’s Hybrid Mode™ is available on NORAC’s UC5™ and UC4.5™ Spray Height Control systems.
