City of Casper:  

Pen and Paper Free for Seven Months (and Counting)

 Casper

Before April of this year, Jim Gerhart and his weed and pest department at the City of Casper, Wyoming, were using paper forms to track their spray applications. “We were looking for a solution that would ease the amount of paperwork that the spray crews had to fill out and the end of the day,” he recalls.
The initial system setup and testing required Gerhart to work closely with our SprayLogger experts to make sure his equipment was ready for the season. “AgTerra has been great in terms of customer support and handling questions through phone or email,” he said.
Utilizing both SprayLogger E3 and SprayLogger Backpack units, Gerhart was able to improve efficiency and accuracy of spray jobs completed across the city in the 2017 spray season. In the peak of the spray season, Gerhart had five applicators using the SprayLogger system. He also shared a SprayLogger unit with an employee in the city’s athletic department for spray applications on the athletic fields. “It was a little bit of a learning curve for him to get used to the equipment,” said Gerhart, “but he caught on quick.”

The ability to report and export spray data made the system a valuable tool for sharing spray job information across departments. Not only was Gerhart able to replace pen and paper for spray job reports; the data he collected could also be exported to shapefile format for use in the city’s GIS system.
Looking to the future, Gerhart feels that the MapItFast and SprayLogger products would be beneficial in other departments, including the golf course, cemetery, wastewater and Casper Public Utilities divisions. “If budgets improve,” he says, “I would like to expand our system to allow automatic boom selection by adding more ports to our control boxes. I would also like to outfit more sprayers with the product.”
