DGPS adds precision to Lely drills and spreaders

LELY now has a fully operational DGPS precision farming system for its Centerliner/Centermatic fertilisers and Poly drill equipment range.

Using an individual JOB computer for each machine, the system is designed to monitor/regulate fertiliser and seed rates through an interface compatible with most tractors.

Lely claims MFs Field Star system is particularly suitable for the DGPS – plugging straight into the computer.

The DGPS system, which is programmed by standard data cards, comprises an individual computer linked to an in-cab touch screen.

For non-DGPS requirements, Lely has also introduced the E-Link – a simpler electronic control system – using sequential programming for adjusting seed and fertiliser application rates. &#42
