Precision farming comes with Trimble
A seminar dedicated to Trimble precision farming systems for agricultural producers has been held in the service centre of the Tyumen Branch of AgroCentreZakharovo.
Heads and specialists of farming enterprises from Tyumen and Kurgan oblasts attended the event. One of the key topics was the centralisation of production processes management on a farm with the help of Trimble solutions.
'Fitting machinery with Trimble equipment makes it possible to collect an array of information about every square metre of the field online, estimate the crop yield, the structural composition of soil and a number of other parameters’, says Ivan Potanin, Manager of the Tyumen Branch of AgroCentreZakharovo. ‘All the data is packed in one interface, so the farm head can control the workflow from a tab or a PC. Moreover, the information which is gathered automatically allows specialists to analyse the effectiveness of operations, make adjustments to the approaches utilised for a chosen area. Besides, the software is designed to integrate data from 1С.’
Recently, Tyumen farmers have been taking an active interest in precision farming tools submitting requests for the integration of the numerous innovations from Trimble, including mapping systems, parallel driving, automated steering and end-of-row turns into their machinery. Apart from the conventional ones, the manufacturer also offers solutions for land levelling and preserving soil water balance.
The guests learned the basic principles of Trimble system operation and saw it in action on the demonstration site of the service centre: in the mode simulating its field operation, the equipment provided data on the machinery running hours, amount and crop properties etc. on the basis of various power signals.
