John Deere just upped its nutrient application game again.
On Tuesday, the farm machinery manufacturer announced that Deere dealers would begin selling and supporting nutrient application products from 360 Yield Center, thanks to a distribution deal that covers Canada and the U.S.
The arrangement builds upon Deere’s new joint venture with Hagie Manufacturing to sell and service Hagie’s high-clearance sprayers, giving farmers access to a broader array of equipment and precision ag offerings.
“This innovative application technology from 360 Yield Center helps to improve timing and placement of nutrients with John Deere and Hagie application equipment, including self-propelled sprayers and toolbars,” said John May, president, agricultural solutions and chief information officer, John Deere, in a written statement. ”John Deere dealers will be able to provide sales and service support for these application products to help producers apply in-season nitrogen and plant health products where and when it’s needed.”
The distribution arrangement with 360 Yield Center covers the 360 Y-DROP product, which helps farmers precisely apply full-season nitrogen; and the 360 UNDERCOVER product, which growers use to apply fungicides, insecticides and crop nutrients late in the growing season to guard against disease and pests.
