Team FIN test: Pioneer Appli-Pro Applicator system
The Pioneer Appli-Pro Super Low Volume (SLV) Applicator System is a new way to apply inoculant to silage using low volumes of inoculant. We put the SLV applicator on our self-propelled forage harvester and our round baler to see how it worked.
We hadn’t used any silage inoculants in our operation for several years, but we were willing to try the SLV system once I saw how easy it was to put on the machine and what a low volume of product would be used. The standard application rate is only 10 ml/ton of silage.
The applicator itself comes with two 2.5-liter bottles for storing the liquid. Each bottle has concentrated inoculant that will treat 250 tons of silage. All you need to do is add water, shake the bottle and screw it into position on the applicator. Once the solution is mixed, it can be stored in a refrigerator for up to five days, or frozen for up to 28 days, with no loss of efficacy. Pioneer also makes smaller bottles of inoculant (the Completion-Pac) capable of treating 50 tons of silage for finishing fields or doing smaller batches.
Several different mounting brackets are available to attach the applicator to the harvester. We put one on our John Deere 5440 by drilling six holes in front of the steps to the operator station and attaching the mounting bracket to the machine. Plastic tubing runs from the applicator to a small pressure gauge visible from the cab. Another plastic tube goes to a nozzle to apply the inoculant. We placed the nozzle to direct the liquid in front of the feed rolls.
Depending on the technology level of the forage harvester, the applicator can be connected with wiring harnesses to automatically turn it on and off at the end of the row or by using GPS field border coordinates. In our case with an older machine, we chose the standard setting for manual control of on and off.
A control box is mounted in the cab. It allows the operator to turn the applicator on and to start and stop the application during harvest, as well as to vary the amount of inoculant applied, based on the harvesting rate. The control box in the cab tells the operator the total tons of silage treated and the application rate.
The Appli-Pro SLV was easy to operate once we got it hooked up and calibrated. The low volume of water needed to apply the inoculant was a big plus. Being able to unscrew the bottles at the end of the day and put them in a refrigerator was convenient.
Since we only have beef cows and feedlot cattle in our operation, it wasn’t possible to do a side-by-side test of treated and untreated silage to compare the performance of each.
However, it wouldn’t take many tons of feed saved or improved to cover the price of about $1,600 for an applicator and $1.25/ ton to $3.50/ ton for inoculant.

on the App Store: About moles
WHY YOU NEED THE APP “ABOUT MOLES”
The number of malignant skin diseases is constantly growing.
Many skin cancers respond better to treatment the earlier they are detected.
The person himself cannot always recognize the danger threatening him in time.
There are not enough qualified doctors, specialists in malignant skin diseases, access to them may be difficult due to remoteness, as well as for financial or other reasons.
Complex “About moles” offers a tool that will help a person determine the need for a visit to the doctor and help in choosing the right doctor’s specialty.
WHAT THE APP “ABOUT MOLES” DOES:
Offers to select a photo of a suspicious “mole” from the gallery or take a photo of a suspicious “mole” with a smartphone camera and indicate additional data about its localization on the body and skin type.
Sends a generated request to analyze the received data.
A specially built and trained neural network evaluates the need to visit a doctor based on the available training material.
Based on the results of the analysis, formulates a recommendation to the user about the need and urgency of a visit to the doctor.
Indicates the specialization of the doctor to contact.
For one user, it allows you to save, analyze and observe an unlimited number of “moles” of both your own and your friends and relatives.
WHAT THE MOLE APP DOES NOT DO
Does not diagnose.
PLATFORM “PRO MOLES”
The methodology for obtaining recommendations from the “Pro Moles” platform was proposed by expert dermatologists and oncologists of the “Privolzhsky Research Medical University” of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. The development was carried out in close cooperation with medical experts. During operation, doctors continuously monitor the operation of the platform.
The basis of the platform is a neural network specially built and trained to recognize the risks of malignant skin diseases from photographs of suspicious “moles” taken by a smartphone.
The neural network was trained on more than 4000 cases with confirmed diagnoses.
The areas of study were the recognition of melanoma and basal cell carcinoma in the early stages.
The operation of the Moles platform was tested in 1000 real cases.
As a result of the tests, the following performance characteristics of the “About Moles” platform were obtained:
Sensitivity – the probability of the correct conclusion of the neural network upon presentation of a malignant disease (basal cell carcinoma or melanoma) was 88%. Accordingly, the probability of a false negative error is 12%
Specificity – the probability of a correct conclusion of the neural network in the absence of a malignant disease (basal cell carcinoma or melanoma) was 78%. Accordingly, the probability of a false positive error is 22%.
The test result is confirmed by a special Report of the Federal State Budgetary Educational Institution of Higher Education “Privolzhsky Research Medical University” of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
According to the conclusion of the Roszdravnadzor of the Russian Federation No. KP-20-006 dated April 14, 2020. The software complex “About moles” is a non-medical software for an unlimited range of users for educational, popular science, reference and information purposes, including for choosing a medical specialist.
