A FENLAND agrochemical firm is the first in the country to take delivery of a futuristic sprayer.

The new model has removable joystick controls that allow the operator to ensure everything is working correctly whilst outside the machine.
It also has in-field GPS, is air-conditioned and has a 180-degree swivel chair to ensure operator comfort.
John Hildred, of Boston Crop Sprayers, Wisbech, said: “This model has been demonstrated in 12 counties and was very well received.
