FarmBits hosts Jose Cesario and Jackson Stansell welcome Chase Schapansky, CTO of GUSS Automation, to this episode of the FarmBits podcast. GUSS Automation produces the Global Unmanned Spray System (GUSS), an autonomous sprayer for orchards and vineyards that is redefining spraying operations for those production systems. Labor and safety are critical issues for spray operations in these systems which often require 6 or more spray passes per year. Grueling overnight shifts with operating conditions that expose applicators to chemicals and require intensive PPE make autonomous spraying solutions very attractive for orchard and vineyard operations. In this episode, Chase discusses these challenges, the origin of GUSS, how GUSS navigates and operates in orchard and vineyard environments, and his vision for the future of GUSS. Tune in to this interesting episode to learn more about how GUSS Automation is redefining orchard spraying!
