Precision application equipment is moving into new territory. AMVAC Marketing Manager Todd Landman says the SIMPAS system can be added to any planter, giving the farmer flexibility to prescriptively apply multiple products in one pass. “Let’s say I have a management zone with a nematode problem or low lying areas in the field that need a supplemental fungicide, I’m going to choose products with the SIMPAS system that will turn on and off like an inkjet printer to apply the product exactly where you need it applied.” Trimble dealers will sell this after-market system in 2020 for the 2021 growing season. AMVAC will sell the products that go into the SIMPAS system. In addition, the technology will be licensed to other product manufacturers.
