Precision Farming

Technology to maximise efficiency and operate sustainably.

Precision placement of sprays and fertilisers, as well as having significant cost advantages, helps reduce product waste to ensure only the required level of product is used so there are not excess amounts of spray or fertiliser being emitted into the environment.

Precision Placement

The technology adopted by AMAZONE seeks to minimise wastage and apply inputs as precisely as possible to reduce the effects of over application and leave the land in the best possible condition.

The technology adopted by AMAZONE seeks to minimise wastage and apply inputs as precisely as possible to reduce the effects of over application and leave the land in the best possible condition.

Application of chemicals faces challenges in terms of increased regulation and increased resistance and it has become apparent that farming practices will have to adjust to accommodate this with a higher proportion of mechanical tillage and less invasive hoeing systems combined with more targeted chemical sprays. In addition to mechanical weed control, the associated savings of plant protection agents and the option of successfully fighting even resistant weeds, hoeing offers even more benefits.

Hoeing can break the encrustations of the soil, which promotes ventilation of the soil and therefore root growth. Opening of the soil also significantly improves the ability to absorb water and it also breaks the capillary water draw and thus reduces the evaporation of water from the soil. The worked soil warms up faster and thus promotes early development of a spring crop.

Traditional chemical plant protection will also be of greater importance in future. The demand for precision down to single-plant treatment will increase. AMAZONE, for example, offers a system including the AmaSwitch or AmaSelect electrical single nozzle control in combination with the GPS-Switch automatic nozzle switch-off, which can save, on average, between 8 to 10 % of plant protection agent by targeted switching off at the headland and on wedge-shaped fields.

Additional increases in the level of sophistication for the AmaSelect single nozzle control, include the functions AmaSelect CurveControl, AmaSelect Row and AmaSelect Spot. These can help to improve accuracy and save on plant protection agents.

With the Argus Twin system, AMAZONE offers a system for spread pattern monitoring with automatic spread pattern adjustment for optimum lateral distribution. The registration of the lateral distribution is carried out via radar technology which is not affected by dust and pollution, and provides reliable results in practice.

ArgusTwin constantly monitors, via radar sensors mounted on both the sides of the spreader, the left and right hand spread fans simultaneously and re-adjusts the electric delivery system independently of each other if necessary.

AMAZONE offers WindControl as a supplement to the ArgusTwin system, to help compensate for the influence of wind on the spread pattern. Mounted on the machine, a high frequency measuring wind sensor registers both the wind speed the direction of wind and the system then calculates, any new settings for the delivery system which are then automatically acted upon.

Seed Hawk sectional control technology is an innovative way to eliminate overlaps and save on input costs. It works in conjunction with on-board GPS to lift openers when previously seeded ground is encountered, and shut down metering of seed and fertilizer, which reduces ground disturbance and doubling up of inputs.

Nitrogen Sensors

The impact of nitrogen on soils and the environment is well documented and understanding and controlling nitrogen levels is an important tool in managing the levels of Nitrogen in the environment. Online Sensors such as CLAAS Crop Sensor and ISARIA are integrated into AMAZONE on-board computers for use on ZA-TS Spreaders, so the calculated amount of fertiliser is applied. 

During fertiliser application, the sensors measure the supply available at the plant and within the restraints of the pre-determined values, the required amount of fertiliser for an optimum plant growth is then calculated.

Our other sustainability pillars

Engine Technology

We provide our customers with solutions that give equal consideration to the drive train and work system to ensure efficiency throughout the engine system.

Caring for the Land

Healthy and fertile soil is the basis of a good harvest and yield increases necessary for the growing world population have to be produced using the existing land resources.
