Purdue Research Park-based Spensa Technologies Inc. is expanding its footprint. The precision agriculture company has reached an agreement with Linden-based non-GMO seed company Spectrum Seed involving pest population data collection throughout the Corn Belt.

Growers in territories from the Dakotas to Ohio will be able to access Spensa Technologies’ Z-Trap system and Trapping Insights data. Spectrum Seed Chief Executive Officer Josh Richey says “we are thoroughly impressed with Spensa’s commitment to excellence and their novel approach to an innovative combination of crop protection insight and solutions. The Z-Trap is a step change in active pest monitoring.”

The companies say the partnership will help growers use insecticides more efficiently.
