Your John Deere sprayer has several features that can help with a wide range of tasks, but did you know it’s also efficient at controlling weeds after harvest season? Controlling weeds is a breeze with a sprayer, and there’s no better time to take on the task than when the weather starts to cool and the field has been fully harvested.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of controlling your weeds with a John Deere sprayer.

1. Cleaner Fields

Controlling your weeds with a sprayer in the fall means cleaner fields come spring. In the end, this can give you a head start when planting season comes around, with no need for pre-planting herbicide applications.

2. More Savings

When you don’t have to worry about herbicide applications and other prep methods, you can save both time and money. Getting right to planting can ultimately boost your efficiency.

3. Less Destructive Insects

Fewer weeds means less shelter for potentially destructive insects. In turn, this can result in lower pesticide costs and save you time. Once spring rolls around, you’ll be able to get right to planting without any of these concerns.

What types of sprayers are out there?

There are several John Deere sprayer models to choose from, meaning there is never a shortage of options whether you have a small field or you’re looking to take on a large swath of land.
