When margins are tight and application windows are narrow, every dollar and every droplet need to work as hard as they can. John Deere See & Spray products bring resource-saving precision to the field:

  • See & Spray Select: Covers fallow fields using advanced camera and nozzle-control technology to spray only emerged weeds. It can also apply traditional broadcast application.
  • See & Spray Ultimate: For in-season application on corn, cotton, or soybeans in 76.2-cm (30-in.) or greater rows or fallow ground using machine learning to identify weed from crop. Also includes a dual product solution system that allows two separate tank mixes to be utilized, better combating herbicide resistance and time inefficiency with two passes in one. It can also apply traditional broadcast application.

Technology evolution

John Deere has focused on taking farmers’ application from field level to plant level over the years. From field to broadcast, section control to ExactApply™ individual nozzle control, and now the next step – to artificial intelligence and machine learning. Both See & Spray offerings work in conjunction with ExactApply nozzle control. They use a combination of cameras and processors to detect weeds before activating only the nozzles necessary to apply a burst of herbicide to the weed, achieving a hit rate comparable to traditional broadcast spray.

Data insights

How do you know See & Spray is doing its job? With the monitoring capabilities of John Deere Operations Center™ application and the Generation 4 4600 CommandCenter™ Display, you can track job quality and savings during and after application. These technology tools also offer weed pressure mapping, providing insights to make even better field management decisions. Weed pressure mapping only occurs when See & Spray Ultimate is active during an operation.


Using less herbicide means using less water and creating less opportunity for drift, and that’s good for the land, water, and air that sustain us.

Additionally, See & Spray provides even more benefits for growers looking to make the best possible decisions about weed control.

See & Spray Ultimate benefits
  • Improve weed control – Combat herbicide resistance with a dual-product solution system that uses two independent tank mixes in one pass, avoiding antagonism in more aggressive tank mixes.
  • Reduce solution use – Reduce the applied volume of herbicide by more than two-thirds by avoiding inefficient traditional broadcast application in corn, cotton, and soybeans.*
  • Gain cost efficiency – More than two-thirds spray volume reduction means significantly lower herbicide costs, fewer tendering stops, and more acres covered in a day.

NOTE: Results based on internal John Deere strip trials in corn, soybeans, and cotton in Iowa, Mississippi, Texas, and Illinois in typical growing conditions with carrying weed size, crop canopy, and field conditions using targeted spray of non-residual herbicide only and using current software/algorithm at time of trials. Results will vary based on crop and weed pressure. 

See & Spray Select benefits
  • Reduce solution use – By avoiding inefficient traditional broadcast applications and spraying only when weeds are detected, you can reduce the applied volume of herbicide by 77 percent.**
  • Gain cost efficiency – Significantly reduce herbicide costs, make fewer tendering stops, and cover more acres in a day.
  • Improve weed control – You may save enough to justify applying a different chemistry while improving your ability to manage herbicide-resistant weeds. Research has shown that weeds sprayed with complex tank mixes and more than two modes of action are 83 times less likely to develop herbicide resistance.

**NOTE: In tests over 75,000 acres of fallow ground, typical weed pressure of 3,000 weeds per acre, and with spray length settings of small medium, customers experienced an average herbicide savings of 77 percent compared to a traditional broadcast sprayer.

Fertilizers and crop protection products are too expensive to waste, and seed is too valuable to risk over- or under-treating. To help make sure your solution is getting to the crop at exactly the right rate and droplet size across a wider range of speeds, look to ExactApply nozzle control system.

The heart of the ExactApply system is a six-nozzle turret with multiple modes of operation to help maintain target rate and pressure. From the cab, operators can choose:

  • 15-Hz pulse-width modulation (PWM) pulses one solenoid for more consistent pressure and droplet size over a wider range of ground speeds and application rates.
  • 30-Hz PWM pulses both solenoids at 15 Hz for more thorough coverage during high-volume applications, like liquid fertilizer.
  • AutoSelect A/B mode automatically switches between two nozzles to maintain a constant spray pressure while you’re spraying conventionally.
  • Turn compensation mode decreases the spray rate on the inside of a turn while increasing the rate on the outside, ensuring consistent application across the entire width of the boom.
  • Individual nozzle control minimizes overlap by controlling spray application at the individual nozzle level, not in 2.4- to 3.35-m (8- to 11-ft) section widths.

By maintaining a target rate and pressure over a wider range of speeds, ExactApply lets you cover up to 20 more acres per hour (based on a 3.2-km/h [2-mph] increase in operating speed) with more consistent spray deposition, saving you input costs and preserving more of your crop’s yield potential.

ExactApply is available as a factory-installed option, as well as through Performance Upgrades and aftermarket attachments. Performance Upgrade Kits (PUK) for ExactApply are available for 400, 600, and 4 Series Sprayer models. ExactApply aftermarket attachment kits are available for 4 Series Sprayer models.

Quality of application is critical. Avoid settling in the plumbing by keeping solution in motion with pressure recirculation, coupled with product reclaim and boom air purge. These features save precious time, product, and expense when rinsing and priming the boom while switching solutions.

Cost savings

  • Pressure recirculation primes the boom versus traditional boom prime where liquid tends to be sprayed out, saving 113.6 L (30 gal.) each time. If an operator does this process 10 times a day, coupled with approximately 85.2 L (22.5 gal.) of solution savings with product reclaim one to two times per day, these two features together could save up to $600* a day.
    • *NOTE: Assumes 113.6 L (30 gal.) of residual product in the system at 93.5 L/ha (10 gpa) and $20 per acre 10 times per day. Adjust the calculation to suite your operation.
  • Reclaim expensive crop protection solutions between applications or required service in the field with product reclaim.
  • Potentially reduce crop damage from residual chemical buildup.


  • Experience uniform distribution of product across the boom.
  • Reduce nozzle clogging with increased agitation of product in solution system.

Keep solution in suspension in the boom and system while the machine is on and not spraying with pressure recirculation. Recirculation during rinsing removes any chemical that settled out of the suspension while spraying, resulting in higher rinse water velocity in the spray pipe. Rinse water can be recirculated multiple times to further clean spray pipes and reduce cleanout times. Boom pressure recirculation mixes the solution and primes the boom before spraying to obtain a homogenous chemical mixture throughout the solution system and up to the nozzle tip. This recirculation improves spray quality and reduces time at the start of spraying.

Product reclaim transfers chemical out of the boom plumbing into solution tanks to improve boom rinse functions, also reducing exposure when servicing nozzle bodies. Additionally, save on chemical cost and enable easier rinse water collection between rinses when operators are not spraying out of the boom in the field.

NOTE: Pressure recirculation and product reclaim kits are also available to order as aftermarket upgrade kits through Parts and as Complete Goods through Performance Upgrades (PUK). Performance Upgrades offers kits for 400, 600, and 4 Series Sprayer while Parts offers kits for R4030-R4060 Sprayers.

With the CommandDrive powertrain, save fuel, reduce cab noise, get improved traction in challenging conditions, and cover more acres per day. CommandDrive offers the operator an Auto Mode that automatically directs the engine to run at the lowest rpm necessary to maintain ground speed and hydraulic functions and to meet the demands of the solution system.

CommandDrive also allows operators to adjust the aggressiveness of acceleration and deceleration and features an Auto Idle system that reduces engine speed to 900 rpm when the machine is in park. It all adds up to:

  • 20 percent or greater fuel savings
  • More acres sprayed per day, thanks to fewer fuel stops and improved traction in rough conditions
  • Reduced in-cab noise levels by 3to 5 decibels
  • Fewer demands on the operator

CommandDrive is base equipment on all 408R, 410R, 412R, 612R, and 616R Sprayers, as well as 400R and 600R Dry Spinner Spreaders.


For the highest level of spray accuracy with less drift and reduced risk of boom damage, look to the BoomTrac Pro 2 automatic boom-height control system.

Thanks to the addition of an inertia-monitoring sensor that helps correct for chassis roll, BoomTrac Pro 2 offers up to 22 percent greater spray accuracy (composite score over a variety of terrains) compared to the previous BoomTrac Pro system, and a five time increase in the amount of time the boom maintains its target height, which is a real plus in rough or hilly conditions. Along with the improved accuracy and reduced drift, operators will appreciate having one less function to perform and one less thing to worry about.

NOTE: BoomTrac Pro 2 is required on all carbon fiber booms.

The StarFire 7000 Receiver is the latest addition to the suite of Precision Ag Technology from John Deere. The StarFire 7000 Receiver offers greater accuracy, faster pull-in times, and season-to-season repeatability. This means less hardware, faster times recovering from a shading event, and the confidence that your guidance lines and boundaries do not shift from year to year. The integrated design further enhances the value that you have come to expect from StarFire products.

Similar to the StarFire 6000 Integrated Receiver, the StarFire 7000 eliminates all setup, installation, and calibrations. There is no need to verify machine and receiver measurements, as this has been done precisely for you at the factory. You will spend 60 minutes less per receiver move each season, which gives you more time to focus on other parts of your operation.

With updated Ethernet connectivity, software updates are easier and faster. StarFire 7000 Integrated Receiver maintains the speed to update software in under 4 minutes while remaining in the cab. Over-the-air updates are 85 percent faster with the StarFire 7000 Integrated Receiver because of Ethernet connectivity.

Benefits to the StarFire 7000 with SF-RTK
  • 5-year repeatability
  • 10-minute pull-in time
  • 2.5-cm (1-in.) pass-to-pass accuracy
  • Drop-in replacement for StarFire 6000 Integrated Receivers

As solution tank mixes become more complex, operators need a better way to manage the products they are mixing in helping to reduce the risk of chemical residue. The integrated direct-injection system provides an additional carrying capacity for raw chemicals and allows injection of single, dual, or triple products directly into the boom depending on installed configuration.

Machine Direct injection
carrying capacity
Injection capability
model year 2015 and older
(serial number 10,999 and lower)
511 L (135 gal.) Inject up to two chemicals
(one high volume, one low volume)

(serial number 11,000 and higher)
889 L (235 gal.) Inject up to three chemicals
(two high volume, one low volume)
all model years
889 L (235 gal.) Inject up to three chemicals
(two high volume, one low volume)

NOTE: Low-volume tanks and pumps must be configured with at least one high-volume tank and pump. High-volume tank and pump can be configured by itself.

Direct injection helps provide quicker changeovers and faster cleanouts while also helping to minimize the risk of using multiple chemicals. This is accomplished by allowing operators the ability to isolate higher-residual-risk chemicals in the injection system while mixing lower-risk chemicals in the solution tank.

The minimum and maximum application rates for each pump are as follows:

Direct injection pump system High-rate pump Low-rate pump
Application rate range
(minimum to maximum)
148-5900 mL/min (5-200 oz/min) 29.6-1183 mL/min (1-40 oz/min)
Agitation capability Not available – suspension products not recommended Not available – suspension products not recommended

NOTE: See Operator’s Manual for additional details based on boom size and speed range, and refer to Tools/Direct Inject Calculator within the EquipmentPlus mobile app (download via Apple® App Store® or Google Play store).
