With arable farming, dairy farming, a biogas plant and a contracting business, Isarnho Farms in Gettorf, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, have a wide range of operations. The portfolio of Topcon products used at Isarnho Farms – the Prall & Marxen GbR – is almost as broad. The farm currently uses two AGI-4 all-in-one integrated receivers and steering controllers, one an AGS-2 GNSS receiver and steering controller, a Topcon interface for yield recording and also TAP Feed, the Topcon digital platform for feed management on cattle farms.
Crop Specialist Stephan Nels-Westpfahl is very satisfied: about nine years ago, he took responsibility for the arable branch at Isarnho Farms. Here, Topcon technology has been in use for the last five years. What started with an AGS-2, Topnet Live and an XD+ display for simple track guidance on the tractor has now developed into a substantial Topcon portfolio.
“The user interface is very clear and easy to handle. Today, we use the technology for ISOBUS-controlled application of fertilizers and crop protection products," says Stephan Nels-Westphal.
