Trimble Field IQ: Flow and Application Control System.
Trimble's Field-IQ™ crop input control system provides you with a complete field application solution, enabling a more productive and efficient farming operation.
The Field-IQ system helps you::
Increase profits by avoiding double coverage and eliminating wasted inputs using automatic or manual section control.
Save on input costs by monitoring and simultaneously varying up to 6 different materials using Variable Rate Application (VRA) technology to precisely plant seeds, apply chemicals and broadcast fertilizers.
Monitor real-time seeding information or fertilizer delivery lines and prevent costly planter problems by catching them early before they cause yield reduction
Utilize crop-sensing technology to reduce costs and environmental impact by controlling the application of nitrogen, herbicide and other crop inputs for optimum plant growth.
Reduce the number of boxes in the cab which allows you to manage all of your guidance and application tasks via one easy-to-use display.
Create maps of non-productive areas in the field and eliminate the application of expensive fertilizer in non-crop growing areas, such as waterways and headlands
Products and Solutions:
Tru Count Clutch Features
No down time: Clutches are instantly activated and deactivated which eliminates any stop or startup lag time of clutches.
Flexible: Tru Count Air Clutches work equally well on vacuum, air, or mechanical units, and air flow is not affected on vacuum or air planters.
Expandable: You may expand the Air Clutch System at any time by adding valves to change the size and number of sections controlled.
Adaptable: No planter modification is required for most planters.
Rawson Variable Rate Drives
Vary the rate of application to match the needs of specific areas of your field:
Use a Rawson™ PAR 2 variable rate drive to handle high performance air delivery systems
Replaces ground drive mechanism, eliminating chains, clutches and wheel slippage
Very fast response, going from stand-still to applying material at the correct rate within a fraction of a second
GreenSeeker® RT200 nitrogen application system
Now there's an easier way to apply the correct amount of fertilizer and chemicals to your field. You'll save on liquid fertilizer and chemicals with automatic boom section control. Reduce overlaps and improve productivity by maintaining speed and automatically turning off application at end of rows. Plus, with the addition of industry-leading GreenSeeker® and WeedSeeker® products, Trimble now offers on-the-go, crop-sensing technologies. Whether you choose to map crop vigor (NDVI), vary rates of application, or just spot spray where undesired plants exist, Trimble has a product for every situation, helping to optimize placement of crop inputs, increase yield and reduce environmental impact.
WeedSeeker® automatic spot spray system
The WeedSeeker system helps you cut overall weed-control costs by up to 80% by saving on chemical costs, cutting down on time and labor, and reducing the environmental impact of your field activities.
Uses advanced optics and computer circuitry to sense if a weed is present
When a weed enters the sensor's field of view, it signals a spray nozzle to deliver a precise amount of herbicide
The WeedSeeker system will spray only weeds, not bare ground, and is effective wherever weeds occur intermittently
