As part of its annual Green Fever sales program, John Deere has launched its Open Air/Open Road Sweepstakes that runs through Feb. 29, 2012. The sweepstakes gives U.S. and Canadian customers and prospects a chance to win a grand prize of either a Belgard outdoor patio makeover with a new John Deere Z425 EZ-Trak zero-turn mower or a John Deere-themed 22-foot Airstream trailer. Both prizes have a retail value of more than $40,000 each.
 
In addition, John Deere will give away 50 Apple iPad 2 digital devices as first-place prizes. Customers can visit their local John Deere dealership to check out the latest equipment and register for the sweepstakes from now through Feb. 29, 2012. U.S. and Canadian residents can also enter by sending in a card with their contact information. For all the sweepstakes eligibility and entry rules, prize descriptions and other information, visit the Green Fever section on the John Deere website at www.JohnDeere.com/GreenFever.
 
The sweepstakes is part of the John Deere Green Fever sales event that offers cash-back incentives and special financing on John Deere utility tractors, hay and forage equipment, and turf products until the end of January 2012. According to Steve Geick, John Deere tactical marketing manager, the Open Air/Open Road Sweepstakes, as well as the Green Fever equipment financing and purchase incentives, give customers and prospects three more great reasons to visit their local John Deere dealer to check out the equipment and register to win one of the prizes.
 
Sweepstakes winners will be drawn from the submitted qualified entries on April 16, 2012, and winners will be notified shortly after.
