St. Joseph, Michigan. – The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) recently announced that K-BAgritechLLC has won an AE50 award.

K-BAgritechLLC developed the Pattern Master, deemed one of the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agriculture industries. The Pattern Master will be featured in the January/February 2015 special AE50 issue of ASABE’s magazine Resource: Engineering & Technology for a Sustainable World.

The Pattern Master is a simple, common-sense approach to reducing spray drift. Made of laser-cut aluminum and a polyethylene brush and designed so that the brush hangs below the boom. The Pattern Master prevents wind shear from destroying a developing spray pattern. The results are more usable product on target, less spray drift, and a better job of spraying. Installing the Pattern Master in front of any nozzle tip will enhance the spray job because it controls ambient wind as well as the wind created by the sprayer ground speed.

Companies from around the world submit entries to the annual AE50 competition and up to 50 of the best products are chosen by a panel of international engineering experts. The judges select products that will best advance engineering for the food and agriculture industries.

The AE50 awards program is sponsored by Resource to emphasize the role of new products and systems in bringing advanced technology to the marketplace. These engineering developments help farmers, food processors and equipment manufacturers cut costs, enhance quality and increase profits.

Resource, a magazine geared to agricultural, biological and food system engineers worldwide, is produced at ASABE headquarters in St. Joseph, Michigan. The publication is read by thousands involved in the agricultural, food and biological industries.
The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to the advancement of engineering applicable to agricultural, food, and biological systems. Its members, from more than 100 countries, are consultants, managers, researchers, and others who have the training and experience to understand the interrelationships between technology and living systems.

This is a link to the drone video work done to show efficacy. Not only does it eliminate the majority of drift but it also then puts that product back to work where it belongs

There were 9 Pattern Masters on the right side and none on the left all other nozzles were shut off running 50 psi.
