G&J Ag: Reintroducing Apache Sprayers to Southeast Missouri

Longtime dealers; maintenance technicians see Apache Sprayers as a good fit for variety of farm operations

A lot of farmers around Oak Ridge, Missouri, know Tim Johnson and Duane Green. And now, the business partners are bringing a familiar name back to the area’s machinery sector.

Johnson and Green operate and manageG&J Agin Oak Ridge. The dealership and maintenance shop also sells and services equipment from MacDon, Demco, Unverferth, McFarlane, Bush Hog and McCormick and will be providing maintenance and repair for Apache Sprayers. Sales and parts inventory from Equipment Technologies dealership Southern Application Management in Batesville, Mississippi will also provide additional benefits to owners.

“We used to have an Apache Sprayers dealer here, and they sold well over the years. People here know the Apache Sprayers name,” Johnson said. “Duane and I have both built up quite a customer base here, so bringing Apache back to this area seemed like a good fit for everyone.”

Meeting growing producer needs

现在是G&J将Apache Sprayers加入销售和服务阵容的好时机。机械行业的整合使生产商重新燃起了与经销商合作的兴趣。对于像G&J这样的公司来说尤其如此,约翰逊和格林都有几十年的销售和服务经验,包括以前为大型制造商服务的经验。

“这些年来,我们卖出了很多喷雾器,”约翰逊说。“我们基本上是在处理零部件和服务。我们将引进一名敬业的技术人员,我们的最终目标是让他一年到头都在使用阿帕奇喷雾器。We hope to bring a lot of Apache Sprayers to this part of the country.”

Why Apache Sprayers align with G&J customers

A few components and qualities of Apache Sprayers will be key to that kind of expansion among the wide range of farm size and crop mixes that characterizes the G&J customer base. Their customers, Green said, range from 500-20,000 acres, with many around 1,500-2,000 acres. Despite that size variability, the high spraying demand and common ground conditions make the light weight of Apache Sprayers a popular feature in row crop and cotton acres.

“Other sprayers are getting so heavy and you have 15 different controllers for the boom and other components,” Johnson said. “Apache Sprayers are straightforward, simple to maintain and farmers I talk to love their light weight and simplicity. We have a lot of ‘gumbo’ bottom ground where weight becomes a major concern. These machines work well in conditions like those.”

Adding Apache Sprayers will help Green and Johnson complete their lineup of key machinery for their customers.

“The Apache lineup is a really good fit for us,” Green said. “We have offered harvest and tillage equipment, so adding these sprayers is something we needed. We’re excited to bring them on.”
