Deere – GUSS Joint Venture

On the heels of announcing a joint venture with SureFire Ag Systems, Deere has announced a joint venture with GUSS Automation.

GUSS is based in Kingsburg, CA and has engineered a semi-autonomous orchard and vineyard sprayer. With its system, multiple GUSS sprayers can be supervised by a single operator. The software developed by GUSS provides for application rate control, sprayer speed, and terrain compensation. 

Through the joint venture, Deere will provide sales and distribution through its channel and GUSS will lead product development. 

According to the companies, the key benefits to the GUSS system is quicker spraying operations, consistent application, and lower labor requirements. 

GUSS was founded four years ago in 2018 and has 35 full-time employees. s
