Introduction

From hardware and software to receivers and antennas, Farming Ahead's December Research Report looks at the ins and outs of precision farming platforms.

Selecting a precision farming platform can be a major decision for a primary producer. As the overall cost of precision hardware and software has generally decreased, its uptake has increased, driven by the search for efficiency and using less inputs.

Whether it’s for guidance or the variable rate application of chemicals and nutrients, there’s a range of services and equipment available in the precision market.

Adding weight to the decision are localised suppliers and dealers having the necessary skill-set to drive precision farming platforms to a level of functionality for the farmer.

Help needs to be on hand, when, not if, something should go wrong. In the past, purchasing decisions were often based on legacy effects, with farmers sticking with precision equipment from one manufacturer because this was the only way they could ensure compatibility.

Now, with increasing compatibility between the latest generation of precision farming equipment, this Research Report looks at the range of available precision farming platforms from major manufacturers.

Third party precision farming consultants have also given us their opinion on the best and worst features of the various platforms from a practical application and functionality perspective.
