The Simple Solutions™ Sprayer Rebate from Monsanto and Redball, LLC, offers15 percent rebates on select Redball® high-clearance sprayers. The rebate is available on Redball Model 680, 670 and 665 high-clearance trailer sprayers, as well as the Redball Model 655 high-clearance three-point sprayer. The maximum rebate is $4,000 on Model 680 and 670 sprayers, and $3,000 on Model 665 and 655 sprayers. Sprayers purchased under the rebate program, which will be available until March 31, 2004, will display a special Roundup® Family of Herbicides logo.

“With the increase in the acreage of Roundup Ready® crops across the South, many growers are struggling to make over-the-top applications in a timely manner,” says Steve Claussen, president of Redball, LLC. “By adding a new sprayer that can cover more acres per hour, growers can improve weed control and possibly increase yields by reducing competition for moisture and nutrients.”

Qualifying sprayers are available in a variety of boom, tank and axle configurations. Front-fold and/or X-Series fully-suspended booms are available in widths from 45 to 100 feet. High-clearance trailer sprayers are available in tank sizes ranging from 750 to 1,600 gallons, and with single, dual or walking-tandem axles, depending on the model. All models feature control panels designed to simplify sprayer operation, with TeeJet or Raven controllers.

To qualify for the Simple Solutions Sprayer Rebate, growers must hold a current Monsanto Technology License and purchase qualifying amounts of seed with Monsanto-branded traits. The rebate is available in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and select counties in Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Virginia. The rebate amount is based on the price negotiated by the grower and participating Redball dealer, excluding freight, assembly and taxes.
