GPS Farming for Precise Irrigation Management
Global Positioning Systems (GPS) allow us to get driving directions, keep track of our kids and pets, and even figure out the best fishing spots. But one of the most important and profitable ways GPS has changed the world is through its impact on farming.
From tractors and combines to irrigation equipment, growers like you are using GPS to make your job easier and to make the most of your biggest asset: your land. We offer two GPS products to enhance your farm operation: GPS Position for center pivots and linears, and GPS Guidance for corners and linears.
Precision Agriculture - How Does GPS Work?
The basic idea behind global positioning is triangulation, using a group of
satellites to act as reference points in space. Calculations based on the known
distance of the satellites above the earth and the time it takes for the signal to
reach a receiver on or near the surface of the earth allow the system to accurately record the receiver’s location.
Throughout the years, we've listened to your needs, and we continue to offer two GPS products to help make your job easier:
- GPS Position
Use this technology to know
exactly where your center pivots
and linears are all the time.
- GPS Guidance
Use this technology in place of
buried wire or furrow guidance.
An option for linears and corners.
