Mapping moves data

DATA from RDS yield mapping systems can now be moved into four different software pack-ages and also runs under Windows.

Compatibility with Optimix Select Mapping, Farmade, Surfer and the new RDS Plot/Plan package is complemented by a significant increase in the systems capabilities, says RDS.

In addition to being able to view yield, weed, soil test and other data overlays, the farmer or agronomist can prepare variable treatment plans for uploading to the RDS Hermes Variable Rate Controller. The move aims to overcome hardware/software incompatibilities, which could make farmers reluctant to invest in systems, says RDS marketing director Nigel Brown.
