Steering systems are as essential as the tractor for today’s agricultural operations. They have moved from being a competitive advantage to an industry standard. The guidance provided by a steering system increases efficiency while decreasing costs, which adds up to significant savings multiplied across fields worked and hours spent. The question remains, what should you […]
: Guidance and Steering
Precision agriculture has offered real farmers real solutions since the 1980s. Each generation of precision agriculture offers new innovations, improved technology, and an enhanced user experience. The TMX-2050 display simplifies guidance and steering while accurately monitoring and mapping fields in real-time. You are still in the cab and in control, but you are operating the […]
Everything You Need to Know About the Trimble Agriculture GFX-350 When you’re ready to go in the field and get work done, the last thing you want to do is spend time hassling with your equipment. There’s something to be said for just being able to plug things in and knowing that they’re going to […]
The Best Display for Your Farming Operation Farmers know their fields – they catch the curve of every hill, anticipate where water collects after a heavy rain, and remember just the right spot to catch sunsets at the end of a long day. Precision agriculture takes that unwritten familiarity and knowledge – the kind only […]
One of the most frequently asked questions farmers have about precision ag is: Will it pay off? Most farmers find the answer to be yes. Whether it’s by streamlining workflows, reducing over-application of farm inputs or leveraging quality farm data to make better decisions, precision ag increases both productivity and profitability. Here are four common […]
There are seemingly endless benefits to adopting precision ag equipment and technology on your farm. Precision agriculture can help save you valuable time and product while increasing your ROI in overall efficiency and profit. A 2016 USDA Economic Research Service report found that the average farm operating profit of precision ag adopters was $66 per […]
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 […]
Since the tractor replaced the horse and buggy over a century ago, farming has continued moving towards full autonomy. With more and more machines replacing typical farming roles, it leads to the question: How will autonomy change farming?
Ben Clappison farms over 4000 acres of potatoes on a contract basis in the United Kingdom. With the cost of planting, growing and harvesting speed potatoes averaging about £2000/acre, it is vital for his beds to be planted as accurately as possible. After a successful trial, he was happy with the results and ultimately chose the GFX-750 display system to achieve the level of accuracy he needed in his operation.
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 […]
