Just as the tractor did not simply replace the horse in one day, Precision Farming is being adopted over time. While it isn’t too late to start the process, the sooner you begin, the sooner you can benefit from the advantages of farming smarter.
Area-specific processing amortizes the investment
Every day the farm manager is exposed to a number of factors that affect business success. Fluctuating grain prices, land availability, fertilizer ordinances, external pressure, diesel prices, climate change and, last but not least, the need to increase the efficiency of the farm have a major impact on the development and security of the farm for future decades. But, where and how do you start? With ISOBUS, the industry has created a standard that ensures that data exchange and communication between tractor and implement, as well as various interfaces work smoothly. Prescriptive planting and fertilizer application is only possible when the attached implement is integrated into the controls in the cab and is precisely positioned. With the help of application maps, an individual observation of the areas takes place and a prescription adapted to the performance capacity via the yield mapping. As a result, more can be harvested and production costs can be reduced. The targeted allocation of the resources applied can quickly recoup the investment in digital systems.
Reichhardt accompanies your digitization
Digitization is not a gimmick, not a nice-to-have, instead, the goal is to increase income and increase comfort. Reichhardt has been accompanying this process in agriculture for over 35 years. With retrofitting in the existing fleet, be it in the ISOBUS sector, with automatic steering systems for vehicles and implements or with smart applications via apps on your own tablet, new investments in expensive vehicles and implements are avoided and the environment is protected. The entry and further development in smart farming happens sustainably and at exactly the pace that the business needs.
