Designed by EZ-Drops, Y-Logic’s precision application reduces input and costs, while increasing farmer efficiencies and crop yield.

The agreement provides AGCO’s RoGator dealers in North America exclusive parts access to Y-Logic, a new dealer-installed premium nutrient delivery system by EZ-Drops for the RoGator LiquidLogic and legacy liquid systems.

RoGator self-propelled sprayers are used by many North American farmers and custom applicators for highly accurate and efficient fertiliser application, as they implement innovative ways to stretch their fertiliser dollars to make every drop count. “Excess nitrogen negatively affects both the environment and farm profitability. One of the simplest ways to reduce nitrogen without sacrificing yield is to move nitrogen application closer to the time crops need it,” said Darren Goebel, director of Global Agronomy and Farm Solutions at AGCO.

The new nutrient application system with patent-pending quick-attach, pivot-mounts by EZ-Drops is now available at AGCO RoGator dealers for all factory boom sizes up to 120 feet, and all row widths regardless of how nozzle boom spacing is configured. “RoGator is a highly customisable platform for the farmer and custom applicator, and it’s innovative aftermarket solutions like Y-Logic by EZ-Drops that allow our customers to extract maximum value out of their machine to apply product to the field in the most efficient way possible,” said Nick Scates, parts marketing specialist for Application Equipment at AGCO Parts.

Y-Logic’s efficiencies extend beyond its agronomic benefits and also include easy installation and removal capabilities, which are designed to save operators valuable time. “Y-Logic’s ease of use and accuracy is the new industry standard. This premium system is lightweight, folds from the cab, is self-guided by the crop, and the heavy-duty stainless-steel breakaway spring and hydraulic fittings, along with high-wear tips make it durable,” said Andy Blackmer, EZ-Drops co-founder.
