Eliminating the stresses of farming through year-over-year accuracy

Dave Gillen is a corn and soybean grower in Western Illinois, farming 1,500 acres south of the Quad Cities with his brother Ray. After starting with WAAS and upgrading to OmniSTAR correction services through a trade-in program, Dave was excited to see the added benefits, but realized he still wasn’t getting the accuracy he desired.

Using Precision Technology to Teach the Next Generation of Farmers

Part of Western Australian College, Esperance Farm Training Centre, teaches best practices for new generation farmers, preparing them for farms of the future in Western Australia. Recognizing that technology is the future of farming, the school began integrating precision ag technology into their curriculum, teaching students the importance of auto steering and guidance while spraying, seeding and super spreading. To do this, they incorporated Trimble CenterPoint® RTX correction services to provide high accuracy in each of these tasks.

Taking the wait time out of precision farming

Row crop farmer Brandon Hunt farms 10,000 acres of corn, wheat and soybean in Southwestern Kentucky. He had years of use out of his RTK system (or base station), but recently, he’s noticed the service would go out at certain points during his operations, especially under trees or in bad weather conditions. When RTK base station issues cropped up, they could be stuck for hours or even days without the ability to do their work.

Receiving a reliable corrections signal across the farm

Fred and Leroy Hofmann grow corn throughout the South Central region of Nebraska. Fred and Leroy originally chose an RTK base station to power their precision agriculture equipment, but often had issues receiving corrections due to foliage around the property. In order to obtain the RTK signal needed to reach every vehicle on every part …

Accurate application delivers precision fertilization

Spending the days spreading various waste products up and down the rows of crop fields, the team at Assiniboine Injections relies on the accuracy delivered by Trimble’s CenterPoint® RTX correction service to obtain precise coverage. This wasn’t the case four years ago. When it came time to invest in a new Xerion tractor in 2016, Assiniboine made the decision to install a Trimble TMX-2050TM display combined with a subscription to Trimble’s satellite-delivered CenterPoint RTX correction service. The CenterPoint RTX service automatically delivers corrections via satellite and within minutes provides repeatable passes to within 1 inch (2.5 cm) year over year.

Controlling Snow Pack Through Controlled Traffic

Managing more than 20 fields varying in size from 12 to 320 acres, Montana wheat farmer Pete Verploegen was looking for a more field‑friendly approach to spraying his fields. He began using a Trimble CFX-750™ GNSS receiver and display with Trimble CenterPoint® RTX correction service.
