GPS, Variable Rate Product Application and Managing Field Traffic.
GPS steering and Variable Rate Product Application are used extensively on the farm via high accuracy GPS subscription signals supplied by both John Deere and Case/Newholland (Trimble).
The farm operates a Controlled or Managed Traffic system when it comes to crop establishment. All operations use auto steer and run on the same wheelings and tramlines every year. This helps reduce compaction on our heavy soils as approximatly 60% of the cropped area is not run on after the primary cultivation.
Seed and fertiliser are applied variably using a combination of soil scanning and satellite imagery throughout the growing season, allowing us to target the placement of inputs to help maximise yields.
