Precision agriculture

Serg increased his row spacing to match the harvesting machinery and plants dual rows.  Serg has installed GPS on his tractors to control machinery movement and to minimise compaction. He now provides contract marking out operations for his neighbours that do not have GPS systems.

With the fallow paddocks in 2009 Serg has had over 90% of his farms mapped and soil tested with this information Serg is ?nally able to to variably apply nutrient over his whole farm, with the aid of catylst this is happening currently and in the future and will be monitored over time.
