MvMVAC Chemical Corporation Announces Collaboration with the J. R. Simplot Company
Jul 31 17
American Vanguard Corporation announced its wholly owned subsidiary AMVAC Chemical Corporation is announced a collaboration with the J. R. Simplot Company to field test AMVAC’s proprietary SIMPAS™ prescriptive application equipment. SIMPAS stands for Smart Integrated Multi-product Prescriptive Application System. This technology enables Simplot Grower Solutions (SGS), a division of the J. R. Simplot Company and leading full-service agronomic input supplier, to test-run the application equipment as part of SGS’s comprehensive services to their growers. SIMPAS allows growers to apply multiple differentiated products to only the portion of the fields needing specific inputs. This is possible by using SmartCartridge™ container technology that uses on-the-row RFID-tagged containers for application. The collaboration allows AMVAC to install hardware and software at select SGS retail locations in order for those retailers to handle and process the SmartCartridges used by SIMPAS equipment to prescriptively apply products. SGS will then be able to perform pre-commercially testing of AMVAC’s SIMPAS and SmartCartridge hardware and software at multiple SGS locations during the 2018 crop cycle in anticipation of AMVAC’s soft launch of the technology in 2019.
