The successful introduction of precision agronomy technologies is more of a long run than a sprint. It is not limited to a one-off purchase of appropriate products, but is a journey, a path, a process that requires continuous investment in upgrading and renewing tractors and equipment, but also in agronomic information gathering over a longer period of time!!!
In the age of data, the data of an agricultural enterprise is gaining in value. But how do I organise the data flow from the web service, the terminal, the logger, etc. into the field map and vice versa, the order, the field boundary, the tracks, the exclusion areas, the digital application maps back to the terminal in the colourful world of agricultural technology and software?
In addition to the technical requirements for variable rate technology (VRT), precision agronomy also requires an understanding of agronomic principles and interrelationships. Colourful maps are nice, but the implementation of agronomy must be well-founded in terms of arable and crop production in order to achieve the hoped-for positive effects in the end.
As an example, here are the technologies of precision agriculture and their dependencies.
- Documentation/data (data flow terminal/logger, synchronisation, data processing, documentation software/impact map, ISOBUS)
- VRT for fertilisation/crop protection/seeding (spreader/sprayer/drill, terminal, sensors, agronomic planning, spreading/spraying/seeding map creation, application software, field database, ISOBUS)
- Track guidance system (RTK, autopilot, terminal, synchronisation, track and field optimisation/planning)
As EXAgT, we help you with medium to long-term investment planning and provide technical and agronomic support for the introduction over several years. Of course, we take into account farm specifics such as your investment planning, long-standing relationships with dealers/suppliers and integrate existing technology and available data and information as far as possible.
