Headland Guidance with GPS

Many small to medium size farms still operate on pure guesswork whilst managing headlands. This inevitably leads to over/under application and product being wasted in the hedge, this impacts not only the bottom line of the business but the environment too. With an average field size of 10 hectares, 30-40% of field area forms part of the headland when applying products at a 24 metre width. The first pass around the field is very often done by eye and is pure guesswork. With GPS the guesswork can be eradicated and application can be incredibly accurate. In a climate where every saving is important, the use of GPS Headland Guidance is a must. The Patchwork BlackBox has this feature as standard

Benefits of Terrain Compensation

Why do I need Terrain Compensation? Terrain Compensation is a crucial feature on GPS systems for agriculture which is fundamental to accuracy, it will correct your position on any slope and undulating land to improve guidance accuracy. Why does Patchwork think Terrain Compensation is important?
