AMES, IOWA, July 8, 2010 – Today, Ag Leader Technology, Inc., a leader in the development of precision farming solutions, released SmartPath™ – a new “drive and guide” guidance pattern. This pattern is available with any of Ag Leader’s manual guidance, assisted steering or automated steering products, including the Ag Leader® Integra and EDGE™ displays, as well as the OnTrac2™ and ParaDyme® steering systems. “No setup is required; drive the first pass and SmartPath will guide you from there.
