Lasdop 93621 104 First GPS equiped structural potato planter either
First GPS equiped structural potato planter
In the north of Holland runs a project called: The
SPINOF-project. In the project farmers, contractors and
other agricultural suppliers are involved in the current
precision farming technologies. Together they want to
upgrade there yields by doing GPS farming.

Yesterday was the first day of planting with a GPS equiped
Netagco Structural.
In cooperation with Agriware (www.agriware.nl) Netagco made
a planter wich will plant more potatoes at the sandy parts
and at the clayey parts of the field less potatoes, to get
an equal potato size. Potatoes intent to grow less and
larger at the sandy parts and at the clayey parts they
intent to grow more and smaller potatoes.
The new planter did a great job and now we will have to wait
untill harvesting season to see the final results.

Hi Lasdop,

very informative series. The "in-cab" picture made me smile.
I see a greenstar system, several commercial controller
boxes, several custom boxes, AND an IPAQ! After all the
years precision agriculture has been around we still are
struggling to find multi-purpose generic controllers that
play well together...

The "in-cab" picture "screams" for ISOBUS.

When everything continues according to the plannings, the
ISOBUS-standardization will be complete by the end of 2005.

One Virtual Terminal in the cab, and data-exchange by
XML-files. ISOBUS is the future !!! (more info:
www.isobus.net)

(in the picture the new ISOBUS-terminal from John Deere.
