Agro chemicals are a commodity that can be variably applied in order to kill weeds more effectively and control fungal diseases or lodging.
Agro chemical maps can be created either in the office or in the field. In the office, chemical maps can be made using the FarmWorks Site software with a Google Earth background to create zones yourself. Or the FarmWorks Mobile software can be used in the field, to physically drive round the field and create zones according to soil type. The other option is to create a variable seed rate map based on a scan of the field using active crop sensors. The active plant sensors can be used in real time to create maps as the field is scanned, or they can be used post process to create maps back in the office after the data for the whole field has been logged.
To variably apply agro chemicals, FarmWorks Mobile can be used to directly control your sprayer. The Trimble FmX and the Trimble CFX-750 can also be used to control your sprayer for variable rate applications and auto section control.
