Outback S-Lite(TM) GPS Now Available at UFA Farm and Ranch Supply Stores

CALGARY, March 17 /CNW/ - (TSX: HEM) Hemisphere GPS and UFA Co-operative Limited have partnered to sell the Outback Guidance(R) S-Lite GPS system in UFA's 35 Farm and Ranch Supply stores across Alberta.

Outback S-Lite increases farming efficiency and yield by providing visual guidance that improves the operator's ability to drive consistently-spaced straight or curved passes. The compact size, expandable features and sub-meter accuracy of Outback S-Lite make it an ideal, entry-level GPS guidance solution for farmers.

"Outback S-Lite is the answer for farmers who need simple guidance during spraying, spreading, broad-acre tillage and seeding applications. It is the right product for someone buying their first precision GPS system for their farm," says Jeff Farrar, Director of Marketing, Agriculture, for Hemisphere GPS. "It's great to partner with an organization that has such a strong reputation in Alberta communities and we are thrilled that UFA chose our guidance system as their recommended solution."

In addition to selling Outback S-Lite through all Farm and Ranch Supply stores, UFA is promoting the product with its One Source Production Advantage brochure, which gives Alberta's top crop producers a convenient, one-stop source for all their farming needs.

"UFA is excited to offer the Outback S-Lite GPS guidance system to our members and customers. It is truly a system that can save farmers time and money," says Bob Schreiner, Director of Operations, UFA. "Our team evaluated other products but Outback S-Lite was clearly the price-for-performance leader for what our customers need."
