HERE'S HOW TO INCORPORATE CROP SENSING INTO YOUR PRECISION AG OPERATION
PERFORM PRECISION NUTRIENT SENSING WITH EVERY PASS
The use of crop sensing technology in cereal and grain crops to measure nutrition needs is one of the fastest growing segments in precision farming. Topcon CropSpec Crop Canopy Sensors work with either the X35 or X25 Consoles and AGI-4 Receiver/Steering Controller to monitor in-field variability, treat on-the-go, or save data for future analysis and creation of prescription maps.
NO MORE GUESSING OR ESTIMATING
Pairing your spraying or spreading solution with industry-leading CropSpec sensors gives you the assurance that you are applying inputs based on your crop's need in real-time. Perform on-the-go averaging with user-determined target rates, create prescription maps, or even prescribe and apply in a single pass. With GNSS autosteering, CropSpec sensing, and variable rate control, you get 24/7, precision operation.
THE INDUSTRY'S LARGEST SENSOR FOOTPRINT
CropSpec units mount on the cabin roof out of harm’s way, with less potential for damage while the high roof top mounting provides the largest sensor footprint in the industry. By scanning a larger percentage of area to be applied, more accuracy in application is attained. You can treat on-the-go, or save data for future analysis and creation of prescription maps.
Grain producers find crop sensors make dollars and sense
These Montana grain producers use Topcon CropSpec Crop Canopy Sensors for "on the go" N applications as well as prescription data. The use of crop sensing technology in cereal and grain crops to measure nutrition needs is one of the fasted growing segments in precision farming and these growers are using it to dramatically increase profitability.
NUTRIENT SENSING FOR PRESCRIPTION MAPPING
CropSpec nutrient sensors scan the crop for crop health and nutrition needs and record data on either the X25 or X35 in-cab console. From the cab, the georeferenced nutrient map can be sent back to the office via MAGNET Mobile AG Network. In the office, you, or your agronomist can retrieve the data in a secure internet location, then process it in SGIS software to generate a variable rate prescription map. The Topcon X35 can do variable rate application of up to 8 products; the X25 up to 4 products.
APPLY NUTRIENTS BASED ON REAL-TIME CROP NEEDS
The beauty of CropSpec nutrient sensing is that it can provide real-time crop health management that allows applcation of variable rate fertilizer on-the-go. Or, it can also be used to supply data for prescription applications at another time.
CropSpec sensors, developed in partnership with Yara International, a leading worldwide supplier of nutrients, offera non-destructive, non-contact measurement method that provides accurate, stable readings with repeatable values.
SGIS SOFTWARE BUILDS YOUR PRESCRIPTION MAPS
SGIS software suites provide farmers, agronomists or multi-user operations with the tools to intake both crop sensing data, as well as with other measurements, to generate variable-rate prescription maps. SGISfarm, for the farm owner/operator, provides standardized templates for common operations which makes the software tool both effective and easy to use.
