Deere to acquire sprayer and planter manufacturer PLA

Deere has signed a definitive agreement to acquire PLA, a privately-held manufacturer of sprayers, planters, and specialty products for agriculture.

PLA is based in Argentina, with manufacturing facilities in Las Rosas, Argentina, and Canoas, Brazil.

John May, president, agricultural solutions and chief information officer at Deere, says: “The PLA acquisition enhances John Deere’s commitment to customers as we continue to provide innovative, cost-effective equipment, technology, and services to improve their productivity.” 

Founded in 1975, PLA was the first company to manufacture self-propelled sprayers in Latin America and has brought innovative solutions to its customers ever since.

The company has approximately 450 employees and currently markets products on four continents.

Deere & Company is one of the world’s leading producers of machinery for agriculture and forestry sectors.
