John Deere teams with Precision Makers on autonomous solutions for golf

John Deere has announced an exclusive agreement to develop autonomous mowing solutions for the golf and sports turf industry with Precision Makers, a Netherlands based company that specialises in autonomous technology for various types of equipment.

“The turf industry is looking for more sustainable operating models to maintain precision turf, and expanding the use of technology will be critical to the future success of turf managers,” says John Deere’s global golf director Manny Gan.

“With labour costs and availability becoming an increasing concern in many parts of the world, customers are eager to introduce autonomous equipment into their operation to ensure tasks can be completed with consistently excellent results and precision.”

Precision Makers is an affiliate of Dutch Power Company (DPC), which already has an ongoing supplier relationship with John Deere.

“John Deere looks forward to working with Precision Makers to bring the best autonomous technology to the precision turf industry to ease labour cost concerns while providing high quality solutions for precision turf applications,” says Gan.
