Exactly. Demand-driven. Resource-conserving.

Optimize the output of your machines.

In addition to Parallel Tracking and Section Control software packages, with LC:NAVGUIDE-VariableRate we offer you a smart solution for the targeted use of variable application rates according to application maps. The application maps visualize different demand zones in the field, such as yield potential zones or infested zones and thus form a reliable basis for improved fertiliser, crop protection and sowing management. Equipped with this technology, your machines will further optimize the individual work processes of agricultural businesses and service providers. Resources can thus be used more sustainably and efficiently.

  • Determination and analysis of the current status of cultivated crops and subsequent preparation of an application map as a precondition
  • Targeted resource management based on precise demand zone classification
  • Accurate documentation of as-applied maps with GPS-referenced polygons with time stamps and application rates
  • System integration of our solution independent of manufacturer and machine type
  • Adapted service package according to client-specific requirements analysis
