SIMPAS-applied Solutions™With patented SmartCartridge® Container Technology
SIMPAS-applied Solutions™ (SaS™) products are prescriptively applied with patented SmartCartridge® container technology to address unique agronomic needs. Multiple SaS products, such as insecticides, fungicides, nematicides and micronutrients, are delivered simultaneously in-furrow during planting.
This closed delivery system creates faster handling by eliminating opening, pouring and mixing while allowing containers to be quickly placed or switched when stopping for seed, fuel or other planned stops. It also reduces worker exposure.
Each SmartCartridge container is equipped with an RFID-enabled Smart Tag™ that increases planting efficiency by automatically tracking and displaying product levels with real-time in-cab monitoring. This as-applied monitoring and reporting also ensures you pay only for as-applied acres. Farmers can change containers while stopped to refill with fuel, seed or fertilizer without worrying about running each container to empty.
SIMPAS® application system technology applies an agronomic prescription to spatially distinct problem areas in each field. Issue-specific prescriptions are developed by your retailer, agronomist or trusted advisor using a variety of factors such as sampling, sensing, historical yield data, elevation, topography and imagery. SIMPAS-applied Solutions products are recommended to address your unique agronomic needs and yield-limiting factors. The prescription is then easily uploaded into the ISO-based display that controls the SIMPAS system.

The SIMPAS system is an open platform designed to accommodate in-furrow application of multiple product categories and brands across various crops simultaneously during planting.
Several product categories are in development for 2022 and beyond. Over time, the SIMPAS system will be expanded to deliver even more granular and liquid inputs to treat a variety of crops, including corn, soybean, cotton, peanut and more.
SIMPAS-applied Solutions will transform the way you treat management zones and pressure areas, letting you choose from a wide variety of broadly licensed products to maximize your crop’s yield potential:
The majority of nematode issues occur in hotspots rather than across the whole field. Prescriptive application enables efficient and precise treatment of these hotspots. Focus the nematicide where you get the most benefit.
Early-season outbreaks of pathogens can cause a reduction in yield potential, but in-furrow application of fungicides fights those stressors. It is difficult to predict when you will experience either cold, wet conditions or warm, wet conditions at or immediately after planting, but the areas that tend to develop disease pressures first are low lying areas where water can pond or heavy soils where water retention is higher. SIMPAS-applied Solutions can be applied prescriptively to low lying and/or high yielding areas to combat soilborne diseases.
Application of micronutrients at planting ensures the plant develops to its full potential. Micronutrient needs vary across a field; SIMPAS-applied Solutions can be applied at exactly the rate you need, where you need it.
Traits aren't performing as well they used to—ensure you have the protection you need by applying a soil-applied insecticide. Some pests are difficult to predict, and most at-plant insecticides are applied preventively. SIMPAS has the flexibility to enable you to make either whole field applications or to select specific zones to treat.
- Plant Growth Regulators
In-furrow application of PGRs at planting promotes vigorous root growth and early emergence to get the crop off to a good start.
Many biostimulants don’t fit seed treatment applications because of volume requirements, shelf-life stability or incompatibility with other components on the seed. SIMPAS-applied Solutions provide accurate placement of biostimulants in-furrow. In addition, the SIMPAS closed delivery system ensures better inventory management.
- Nitrogen Management
Increase the plant’s ability to fix and utilize nitrogen in multiple crops with an in-furrow application. In the future, the SIMPAS-applied Solutions portfolio will include N fixing solutions as well as macro- and micronutrient enhancers.
Apply inoculants in-furrow in the zones in the field where they provide the most benefit. Low lying areas or zones where water has ponded will likely benefit more from inoculants than areas where conditions are optimal.
