The paddock planning service
Identifies and manages all operational scenarios that arise in the field allowing full repeat-ability year to year. The process simplifies operation for drivers and managers alike.
Covers everything from custom working-to-fence distances for firebreaks and internal fence lines, to separate AB lines against tracks through paddocks
You will be provided with –
Optimised guidance lines, whether or not you practice Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF).
The ability to auto-steer all straight segments of headland laps and most curved segments.
Consistent customised distance from fence line to crop, along ALL straight segments of boundary.
Virtually no risk of machines contacting fence lines, especially beneficial for seasonal workers, dusty operation, night operation and higher speed operations. Also, neat and tidy boundaries.
Operator NEVER needs to create new guidance lines or nudge existing lines.
Operator manuals for all machines and managers with a farm map and map of each paddock, showing location and name of each guidance line in use.
The ability to conduct in-field trials and VRA related work in a much simpler and more easily managed fashion, due to lines never moving and good boundaries for prescription making.
