Bayer had six patents in robotics during Q4 2023.The patent filed by Bayer AG in Q4 2023 relates to a method of spraying a field with a vehicle, using a liquid spray containing agrochemical active ingredients and adjuvants. The adjuvants include specific compounds such as sulfosuccinate metal salts and organosilicone ethoxylates. The spray is applied at a rate of less than 60 litres per hectare, with droplet sizes controlled by hydraulic nozzles or atomising discs to ensure effective coverage.

Application: Method for low volume spray application (Patent ID: US20230406502A1)

The patent filed by Bayer AG relates to a method of spraying a field with a vehicle, where the liquid spray contains agrochemical active ingredients and adjuvants selected from specific chemical groups. The spraying is done at a rate of less than 60 liters per hectare, with specific droplet sizes based on the spraying mechanism used. The method aims to optimize the application of the liquid spray on plants with textured leaf surfaces, potentially using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for the process.

The claims of the patent detail specific parameters for the spraying method, including the types of adjuvants allowed, droplet sizes, spray rates, and concentrations of adjuvants in the liquid spray. The claims also specify the use of hydraulic nozzles and atomizing discs for spraying, with variations in droplet sizes based on the spraying mechanism. Additionally, the patent covers the use of vehicles equipped with hydraulic nozzles and atomizing discs for efficient and controlled spraying, with a focus on optimizing the application process for better results.
