Citing EPA compliance and diminishing volumes resulting in an ever-changing industry landscape, AGCO announced it will discontinue production of its line of SpraCoupe compact, self-propelled sprayers for the North American market in 2013.

Mark Sharitz, AGCO's marketing director for application equipment, said production of all SpraCoupe 2013 models - including the 4460, 4660, 7460 and 7660 models - will continue through May. 

 For the past 50 years, the SpraCoupe brand has served farmers who want smaller professional-grade self-propelled application equipment for applying fertilizer and crop protection products on their own. However, the North American customer base for this segment has been shrinking, reflecting fewer, smaller farms and a growing number of larger farming operations, fueling demand for larger, more productive machines. Sharitz said these market shifts combined with the cost for Tier 4 compliance have made it impractical to continue the SpraCoupe brand after the 2013 model year.
