The Toro Company agreed to settle all of its outstanding litigation with Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc. The parties’ patent infringement, trade secret, false advertising and other claims and counter-claims were resolved without any admission of liability or wrongdoing, nor any licensing arrangement, by either party.
Both companies will continue to compete in the field of soil sensing with their respective technologies, Toro’s Turf Guard product and AST’s UgMO product, and they’ve agreed not to disparage one another’s product. Both companies agree that customers will see substantial benefits from measuring soil moisture, salinity and temperature to create healthier turf and manage their water usage with greater precision.
