Planting and Seeding

Utilize proven precision agriculture technologies from Trimble® to enhance your planting and seeding operations—and increase your profits by saving on wasted inputs and increasing your productivity.

Solution Overview

Planting and seeding solutions from Trimble include:

Prescription Maps
Start by creating a prescription map within Farm Works Mapping™ software to help you place the right amount of seed in the right spot. Wirelessly transfer the map into your display for planting with variable rate technology.

In-Field Guidance
Accurately guide your tractor with a hands-free Trimble steering system to increase your operational hours and reduce fatigue. Adding a Trimble implement control system helps ensure that your implement is on-line no matter the terrain type.

You can even wirelessly share guidance lines and coverage maps between vehicles operating in the same field to reduce overlap and speed up planting jobs.
Planter Control
Use Trimble's Field-IQ™ crop input control system to perform automatic section control, variable rate application, and seed monitoring—helping you prevent overlap, save on input costs, and ultimately increase your yield.
Row Crop
  • Simultaneously control the application rate of up to six different materials
  • Prevent seed overlap by automatically controlling up to 48 individual rows
  • Perform simple and advanced seed monitoring
  • Analyze your seeding performance with status items such as population, singulation, skips/multiples, and spacing
  • Add Rawson™ drives to vary seed population to match soil potential or Tru Count Clutches™ to instantly start and stop the flow of seed.
  • Simultaneously control the application rate of up to six different materials including granular and liquid products
  • Monitor up to 96 rows of blockage sensors
  • Minimize overlap detection with control drive or add sections for liquid/NH3
  • Control existing PWM, linear actuators, electric over hydraulic motors, or Servo systems
  • Read auxiliary sensors such as fan speed, low bin level, air pressure, and implement switch

While planting or airseeding, keep as-applied mapping records to automate your record keeping and use for post-harvest performance analysis.
