    USDA and FABE Develop Worlds First Intelligent Sprayer

    Jul 23, 2018

    It’s not often that a grower comes across a piece of new equipment that can give a full return on investment in one year and can reduce their farm’s impact on the environment. But a device developed by researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) is promising just that. Their “intelligent sprayer” is the first automatic spraying system of its kind in the world. “Using conventional sprayers, growers simply turn on the sprayer at one end of the row of trees and stop spraying at the other end,” said Erdal Ozkan, professor of agricultural engineering in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE).
