A drill coulter stacked with soil sensing technology to detect and map organic matter, soil moisture, temperature and furrow residue on a row by row basis, to vary seed and fertiliser application across a field to help even up emergence and optimise crop yields.
How it works
Fitted on each coulter, smart drills enable real-time collection of soil condition data via optical & thermal sensors. Information can then be used to vary seed rate, seeding depth, fertiliser rate or even crop variety in real time to suit specific field areas.
Farmer / Agronomist Benefits
Data captured by this technology allows growers and advisors to develop tailored seeding and fertiliser plans without outsourcing field mapping specialists. An ideal tool for growers renting new land, or for contractors.
