This is the story from Alistair Hart, our official Australian dealer. The project was a four-hectare strawberry farm that needed machinery guidance on a budget for creating precise strawberry beds.
Agricultural robot powered with Reach RS+ aims to help smallholder farmers in the Pacific region to increase food production and maximize nutrition security.
Brazilian ArnsTronic designs and manufactures UAVs and provides a complete crop monitoring plan to customers. To get the precise maps they equip a fleet with the centimeter-accurate Reach RTK and use Reach RS as a base station. The method saves a lot of time and allows to survey large areas where the conventional approach is unfeasible.
Our user Andreas Ortner utilizes Reach and Reach RS with an auto-steering system on John Deere tractors on his farm in Austria. He equipped the tractor fleet with Reach RTK Kit and an auto-steering system made from standard components. Such a set up doesn’t require complicated integration and may be used on any machinery.
Our user Joseph paired Reach RS with one of the many Android smartphone/tablet GPS guidance applications that can deliver GPS precision to farming. The centimeter-accurate positioning reduces overlaps and missed zones and this helps to save time and increase yield potential.
