Deere makes deal with sprayer company

John Deere has struck a deal with Smart Guided Systems to sell and support its spraying technology.

It will sell the Smart Apply Intelligent Control System through its dealerships in Canada, the United States and Australia.

The system can be added to orchard, vineyard and nursery sprayer equipment to ensure that only the needed amount of pesticide is sprayed where it’s needed.

“The Smart-Apply system will help ensure that only the canopy gets sprayed and automatically adjusts spray volume based on plant density per nozzle zone. This results in less wasted product while positively contributing to environmental sustainability, maximizing potential profit, and maintaining agronomic efficacy for our growers,” Deere said.
