Tech, machine and input providers team up

A group of 3 companies are teaming up to integrate 2 key activities for pest and disease management – treatment recommendation based on in-field observations and variable rate spray application.

The solution that currently is developed by Farm Dog, John Deere and ADAMA was recently previewed to 750 agriculture professionals at the 2019 Develop with Deere Conference in Chicago.

Platforms unite

The solution enables growers and agronomists to create treatment recommendations within the Farm Dog mobile application and send them directly from the field to variable rate spray equipment via John Deere Operations Center, without risk of miscommunication of key information. Artificial intelligence will provide users with insights into treatment history, local regulations, crop specifics, and other key agronomic inputs.
