Chemicals can be a substantial investment and the more land you farm, the more you need to spend to maximise productivity.
Applying chemicals with precision and accuracy is vital for protecting profits, as well as crops. Using electronics and GPS technology can help save time and money.
The key to linking your farm sprayer with your tractor and a network of positioning satellites floating 20,000 kilometres above is an ISOBUS connection.
ISOBUS is either standard or optional on a range of HARDI sprayers. One of the most popular is the NAVIGATOR family of trailed sprayers which are very user friendly.
ISOBUS gives NAVIGATOR automatic compatibility with your existing tractor and its on-board systems. There is no need to invest in any special terminal, displays or controls.
More importantly, it means you do not have to learn the functions and layout of another operating system. You can simply use NAVIGATOR via the tractor platform you are already familiar with.
If the farm tractor does not have a guidance system, HARDI has ISOBUS controllers to suit the NAVIGATOR. The system integrates with NAVIGATOR's spray functions and provide access to a full range of ISOBUS and spraying functions including guidance mapping, Auto Steer and Auto Section Control, plus information on application rate, tank contents, boom height, spraying speed and more.
