GPS will help Toro sprayer reduce treatments

A new product that Toro Co. helped develop will make golf courses more green — and save money in the process.

GeoLink, which Toro designed with California-based Topcon Positioning Systems, is a precision spraying system that uses GPS satellites, mapping software and computerized spray nozzles to reduce the amount of chemicals needed to treat greens and fairways.

Toro has not yet determined a price, but is finalizing beta testing at golf courses in Florida, New Jersey and England.
