Topcon Agriculture has introduced a new solution, Transplanting Control, designed specifically for specialty farmers. This innovative technology provides growers with GNSS-based guidance, autosteering, and control, which can significantly reduce labor requirements, boost efficiency, and increase production. With this new solution, farmers can expect to increase crop production by up to 15 percent or more, thanks to the enhanced precision and accuracy of the technology.
The Transplanting Control system is designed to eliminate the manual labor required to outline fields physically. Instead, the system uses GNSS-based guidance to locate crop rows and optimize crop placement accurately and precisely. This enables farmers to maximize available resources such as soil nutrients, water, and sunlight, resulting in more uniform transplanting and a healthier crop with increased production and quality. “Manual measurement is still common practice in areas where specialty and permanent crops are grown,” said Michael Stone, vice president of product development at Topcon Agriculture. “Our precision GNSS-based guidance and control allows for more elaborate planting patterns and has been proven through countless industries and applications. This now-affordable transplanting technology can help growers increase crop production by up to 15 percent, if not more.”
The task planning interface provided by Transplanting Control is easy to use and streamlines the setup process. This allows farmers to quickly and efficiently plan and execute their planting operations, saving time and reducing potential errors. In addition, the reliability of GNSS ensures that farmers can expect reductions in fuel and other inputs, resulting in lower operational costs and improved profitability.
Transplanting Control technology offers additional benefits beyond simply planting crops. It can also improve efficiencies with tasks like soil sampling and post-hole digging, allowing farmers to optimize their operations and improve productivity. In addition, this technology offers significant benefits to specialty farmers, who face unique challenges in maximizing crop yield and profitability.
