How do you fertilize a piece of land more efficiently? Dutch family business Cerfontaine, which specializes in arable farming, is trying out a new approach.
Their aim is to improve output and save on time, fuel and fertilizer. But, as the team has found out, these are not the only benefits that come with adopting smarter processes.
A more insightful process
With a new guidance system on its Vervaet slurry injector, Cerfontaine is able to minimize overlap and therefore operate the machinery more efficiently.
How did they arrive at this decision?
“We were initially looking into the best way to measure onion yields. That’s how we became acquainted with Topcon. From there, we decided to introduce Topcon consoles onto our slurry injector as well,” says Daniël Cerfontaine, CEO.
The use of Topcon’s technology allows the company to provide more insights to its customers. “By working with this console and TAP (Topcon Agriculture Platform), it’s easier for us to inform our customers on how the work was done and how much manure ended up where. We can also provide exact measurements of the surface. All of this makes the process a lot easier.”
