News article: USDA and FABE Develop Worlds First Intelligent Sprayer

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.

Their “intelligent sprayer” is the first automatic spraying system of its kind in the world.
