FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 22, 2022 – Mesa, AZ –With inflation at a 40-year high, gas prices at historic levels, a limited supply of herbicides, and farm workers in short supply, growers continue to be hit with ongoing challenges to keep their businesses in operation.
By reducing expensive herbicide use, up to 90%, AgTechLogic is providing the next ‘big thing’ in weed detection and elimination. Their focus is on providing growers with significant savings on their herbicide costs while enabling better efficacy in herbicide application with their Intelligent Precision Spray systems (IPS).
Since launching its Intelligent Precision Spray technology, the Arizona-based company has continued to support the University of Arizona in its independent trials on various crops grown throughout the southwest, testing the technology for its level of efficiency and operational ease.
This IPS technology is completely customizable, which allows growers to integrate the system onto their existing sprayers and other equipment, providing flexible, affordable spraying options. In turn, growers are able to reap immediate savings and gain sustainable, cost-effective solutions to their weed management problems.
Whether it is saving money on inputs or using more effective products to help farmers achieve better weed control and manage herbicide-resistant weeds, AgTechLogic has brought to the table a ‘smart’ way of spraying weeds in the field. “What would have normally taken us 500 gallons to cover, we did it with about 200 gallons.”, stated AgTechLogic customer, Kevin Mittendorf of Armistead Farms, an orange orchard grower in Mesa, AZ.
