Smart Apply Adds Noah Sanders as District Sales Manager, Expands Presence in California and Southwestern U.S.

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (April 24, 2024)  – – Smart Apply, Inc., creator of the Smart Apply Intelligent Spray Control System for high-value crops, today announced Noah Sanders has joined the company as district sales manager. Based in Bakersfield, California, Sanders will provide technical sales support to equipment dealers and growers in Central and Southern California, and the Southwest with a primary focus on Arizona and New Mexico. 

Smart Apply CEO Jerry Johnson welcomed Sanders, a California native with 15 years of experience in agriculture and equipment sales. “California is a growth market for Smart Apply’s precision spray and data system based on the volume of tree fruits, almonds, pistachios, and grapes produced, but also because of the state’s emphasis on sustainability and managing water resources. The Southwest is home to major pecan orchards. Noah’s addition is critical to converting more growers to Smart Apply and the significant impact it will have on operations, profitability and sustainability.”

Prior to joining Smart Apply, Sanders was a key accounts sales representative for Kern Machinery in Bakersfield, California, for nearly five years. In this role, he worked directly with growers across the San Joaquin Valley, focusing on equipment and precision ag solutions. He earned a bachelor’s in business administration from California State University at Bakersfield.

“I’m really excited to join Smart Apply. I’ve seen firsthand the challenges growers face, and believe Smart Apply can be a game changer with immediate ROI of lower input costs from precision spraying and automation, but also the long-term benefits of data analytics,” Sanders says. “The company is committed to continuing to enhance the system’s functionality that will help high-value crop growers optimize yields in the most efficient ways possible.”
