John Deere Buying Italian Sprayer Manufacturer 

(Moline, IL)  —  John Deere is adding another European firm to its fold. The big green tractor maker yesterday announced it’s buying Italian sprayer manufacturer Mazzotti. Deere leaders said the move will allow them to access new markets in Europe. There don’t appear to be any plans to move sprayer manufacturing from Italy to Moline or other Deere hubs in the United States.
