With sowing just around the corner, it’s time to prepare & get your equipment ready to hit the ground running. We’ve listed below 5 proven ways to enhance you sowing operations for the season ahead & beyond.
1. Trimble TMX-2050 Display
The Trimble TMX-2050 Display continues to dominate season after season with its large high-definition touch screen, sharp visuals and versatility to suit any farming operation through the choice of FmX® Plus or Precision-IQ™ display applications.
View different mapping layers, such as coverage, speed, and applied rate. Manage your field directly from the display with the Field Manager view—showing fields, AB lines, and boundary information all in one easy-to access screen.
Gain instant access to the Trimble Connected Farm™ dashboard—a central location to view the information that impacts you, such as weather forecasts and rainfall, commodity prices, and fleet management information.
Connected Farm eliminates the need for USB storage, with faster access to your information from anywhere. Transfer guidance lines and maps from the office to the field seamlessly. Even diagnose problems in real time remotely, so the operator never has to leave the cab. Move beyond precision farming to decision farming.
2. Trimble NextSwath Autoturn
When approaching the end of a crop row, Trimble NextSwath automatically calculates and executes the best possible path to turn the farm vehicle around and approach the next crop row or swath with the implement precisely aligned to begin working.
By automating the end-of-row turn process, NextSwath technology can dramatically improve sowing performance, eliminate air-seeder undershooting or overshooting, and minimize skips and overlaps when lining up for the next row.
Reduce operating & fuel costs, compaction zones on field edges, crop damage & improve sowing operation productivity.
3. Trimble Vehicle Sync
Trimble Vehicle sync is an unlock feature that enables you to quickly & efficiently wirelessly transfer guidance lines between machines & receive real-time information on your fleets location, seed & coverage logging.
In addition to sharing guidance lines wirelessly, you’ll have access to machinery coverage mapping, tank levels, yield & moisture data, point/area/line features, as well as the vehicle icons of other machines working in the field.
4. Trimble Field IQ Rate Control
The Trimble Field-IQ system controls planter clutches and a variety of air seeder systems by automatically turning sections on/ off based on non-farm zones and previously planted areas.
Prevents seed and fertiliser overlap, controls the rate of material applications, monitors seed delivery and fertiliser blockage.
Monitoring your seed population, eliminate skips and multiples, and maintain correct seed spacing.
5. RTK Accuracy
RTK stands for (real time kinematic) and it is the highest accuracy correction service available for precision agriculture, delivering accuracy better than 2.5cm.
RTK uses a local, ground-based reference station that transmits the high-accuracy corrections benefits of this accuracy include reduced overlap, meaning fewer inputs are used, driving down your overall costs.
