Trimble Connected Farm to Boost Livestock Wireless Connectivity

Posted by Rory Carvalho

    Trimble has designed a solution to deliver wireless connectivity to their systems by connecting agriculture with a data platform, resulting in the "connected farm". Trimble connected farm is a cloud-based solution that enables customers to manage a mixed fleet of vehicles and implement a variety of applications.

    With the connected farm, customers have one central point to monitor farm operations. Customizable widgets including information about weather, commodity prices, and scouting maps, are available to monitor future decision making from the office to the field. Trimble designed this technology to deliver a streamline approach to farm management while simplifying the cultivator's ability to operate live machine data on a single user interface. 

 

    Why a Connected Farm? It offers an efficient approach to visiting the field. The dashboard connects the field to the office and allows you to collect, share and manage data real-time. Its platform has features for the farmer, adviser and the fleet manger so they can collaborate together through the cloud. 

 

Some features of the Connected Farm:

  1. Precipitation Monitor: Check accumulated rainfall and view a graph of rainfall activity. 

  2. Field tasks: View yield data and variety maps instantly.

  3. Soil Information System (SIS): Soil mapping technology that uses sensors, intelligent targeting and geo-processing algorithms to produce high resolution, accurate soil and topographic information.

  4. Irrigation Monitor and Control: Use the Irrigate-IQ irrigation solution to track water, fertigation, or drainage applications.

  5. PurePixel Vegetation Health: Utilize calibrated PurePixel maps to compare crop health from different time periods. 

  6. Fleet Positions and Alerts: View real-time positions and alert mixed fleets using the Trimble Fleet Management solution.

 

 Specialized Trimble parts are not produced in high volume, and it can be challenging to find reliable sources for them.  Earthtron is proud to be an independent distributor of Trimble parts.
