Smart-Apply Intelligent Spray Control System to be sold through John Deere dealerships
Through an allied distribution agreement with Smart Guided Systems, John Deere dealers will sell and support the Smart-Apply Intelligent Control System in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. The system reduces the potential for chemical drift and helps decrease the amount of product being applied.
Smart-Apply, which uses LiDAR, is compatible with John Deere tractors used in high value crop applications. It is an add-on kit for air-blast sprayers towed behind a John Deere tractor.
“We are excited to offer this innovative precision spraying solution to our customers for use with their John Deere tractors in high value crop applications such as fruit and tree nut orchards, nurseries, and vineyards,” says Greg Christensen, Go-To-Market Manager for John Deere. “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.”
Steve Booher, CEO, Smart Guided Systems, says “The agreement gives our customers access to an innovative, field-proven precision-spraying control system for use in high value specialty crops through a proven distribution channel.”
