SIMPAS® Application System

Take a virtual tour of SIMPAS® equipment to see how it applies only what's prescribed, precisely where it's needed.

example of multiple crop inputs


The game-changing technology of the SIMPAS® application system will transform the way you plant with the following:

  • Prescriptive, in-furrow application of multiple crop inputs

  • Delivers liquid and/or granular products simultaneously

  • Closed delivery system reduces worker exposure

  • Adaptable across multiple planter brands and models

  • Works with ISO-based displays

  • RFID-enabled Smart Tag™ technology provides automated record keeping

How It Works

SIMPAS is the next evolution in precision agriculture, allowing farmers to prescriptively apply multiple products in-furrow simultaneously at planting. With SIMPAS, you pay only for as-applied acres, so you can profitably and sustainably address pressure areas that would otherwise go untreated.

SIMPAS also supports environmental stewardship with precise product application, fewer inputs per field, reduced worker exposure and forensic-quality traceability.

Easy to Use

SIMPAS equipment is designed to fit a wide variety of planter makes and models with easy-to-install planter-specific brackets. The software is controlled by an ISO-based display with an intuitive user interface to maximize compatibility and convenience.

SmartCartridge® Container Technology

Our patented SmartCartridge® container technology delivers multiple SIMPAS-applied Solutions™ — liquid or granular — at the same time, with each container holding approximately 20 pounds of granular product or approximately 2.5 gallons of ready-to-use liquid product with no carrier. Each cartridge is equipped with an RFID-enabled Smart Tag™, which ensures each container is in the appropriate slot while automatically recording product levels. After planting, simply return all SmartCartridge containers to the retail point-of-purchase and pay only for as-applied acres, without worrying about running each container to empty.

Patented Closed Delivery System

SIMPAS equipment paired with SmartCartridge container technology creates a closed delivery system for faster handling and reduced exposure, with locking mechanisms that ensure containers cannot be removed while the valves are open. SmartCartridge containers are designed to ensure product flows only when they are secured and locked in place with the SIMPAS hardware. This closed system reduces worker exposure and allows for containers to be easily placed or switched when stopping for seed, fuel or other planned stops, thereby increasing planting efficiency.

Powered by Ultimus™

Ultimus™ technology works with onboard RFID hardware in the SIMPAS system to provide forensic quality chain-of-custody traceability for all SIMPAS-applied Solutions. Data is written onto an RFID-based Smart Tag at each key stage of the value chain, from SmartCartridge container filling, throughout the distribution channel, during application and then through the return process post-planting.

Carbon Credit Capabilities

The SIMPAS system can apply products such as nitrogen-fixing solutions that replace a portion of manufactured nitrogen to lower the high carbon footprint associated with manufactured nitrogen products. Ultimus auto-records precisely when and where the carbon credit eligible products are applied to enable carbon credit location verification for accurate tracking if you choose to enter the carbon credit market.
