GPS-Switch with individual row shut-off


Accurate placement of the seed After the success of the GPS-Switch system on fertiliser spreaders and sprayers, sowing is now the focus for the use of this technology. The switching on and off of the individual units is controlled via GPS.

In this way, the stress on the driver is reduced and an improvement in the operational performance is achieved especially in small fields with many headland turns. The future is already here Sowing maps, in which the seed rates can be adjusted to the individual conditions in the field, such as hills and hollows or changes in soil type, are also becoming increasingly popular. As an option for the AMATRON 3 terminal, the Task Controller (via ISO-XML) or GPS-Maps enables easy conversion of application maps. A graphic display of the map in the background offers a good overview. Automatic on and off GPS-Switch controls switching on and off depending on the position of the machine and the settings made by the driver. Tramlines and irrigation tracks can be created very easily and conveniently via the individual row shut-off. Narrower row spacings require tramlines, in order to enable the application of phosphate or other fertilisers in the growing crop without damaging the plants. In this way, during practical operation, the often found over or under-sown areas in critical spots, such as on the headland or in wedges can be minimised. Sowing ‘gaps’ are now things of the past! The driver can concentrate fully on driving.
