Precision agriculture and repeatable, pass-to-pass accuracy go hand in hand, and there’s no better technology to support both than Trimble RTX® correction services. Utilizing more data for better accuracy, it makes use of not just GPS, but a global network of satellite constellations. Let’s look at precisely what Trimble RTX is, and how its superior […]
: Correction Services
While the weather outside might be frightful, it makes no difference for jolly old St. Nick. Snow or sleet, rain or shine, in the wild jungles or the wild urban canyons, he has a magic trick up his sleeve to ensure every present is delivered to its rightful recipient in every corner of the globe. […]
Precision agriculture (PA) can be an intimidating topic. High-tech terms like drones, robots, sensors, geo-mapping and big data come up when discussing precision ag. Not only are those concepts misunderstood and complex, but they all come with price tags— and often large ones. All of this complexity and expense have led to the relatively slow […]
By Michael Bruno and Vivek Nadkarni Many farmers rely on positioning services to make accurate passes across their fields. Doing so ensures their passes are consistent, preventing overlaps and skips so they can be efficient with their time, land, and inputs. But with options for correction services varying from the sub-meter accuracy level down to […]
There comes a time in every machine’s life when, as reliable as it may be, it is not meeting all of the needs of a farm. Perhaps responsibilities need to change hands or profit margins need to be improved due to market pressure—whatever the reason, a farmer is faced with a decision. Should they retire […]
With the end of the season fast approaching, you’re probably monitoring your crops and the weather for the ideal time to get into the field and begin harvesting. While you likely know the importance of conducting a thorough inspection of your equipment before you get the combine rolling, you should also ensure your precision technology […]
For years, the inherent risk of running land-forming operations with GPS has been that drift is a possibility. However, the wasted time that happens with drift is far less likely than the more common delays that happen with laser technology due to factors like wind and dust. Still, downtime is still a big concern when using GPS-based systems, which have long been unable to overcome the increasing magnitude and repeated occurrence of drift.
