Precision farming from Deutz-Fahr
p Deutz-Fahr’s Tractor Implement System creates self-propelled working machines when tractor and implement ‘merge into one’ . t Agrosky is operated using a single monitor – the iMonitor2.
Deutz-Fahr’s precision guidance system Agrosky has been fully integrated into its new 6, 7 and 9 series tractors which range from 150-340hp. Agrosky is operated using a single monitor – iMonitor2 – and employs satellite receivers to steer the tractor, allowing drivers to focus on finetuning and adjusting implements for optimum performance.
With modern touchscreen and external MMI operation – which is integrated into the armrest – iMonitor2 is an extremely userfriendly interface between the tractor, implement and driver. All Agrosky’s reception and control technology is integrated into a single central unit (SRC 40). It is a feature which adds flexibility to nearly all farming disciplines that
potentially involve moving from one tractor to another or when switching implements onto the same tractor. However, maximum efficiency is achieved when the tractor and implement merge into one, says Deutz-Fahr. Its Tractor Implement Management (TIM) system creates a self-propelled working machine. As an Isobus expansion level, DeutzFahr has implemented TIM with compatible machines – when used in conjunction with Isobus – Aux Control the implement operation is integrated within the tractor armrest
control which enables routine functions to be managed from one lever. Section Control, variable rate control and recording of yields optimises efficiencies by avoiding any overlaps and voids in all manner of applications. Deutz-Fahr Section Control can automatically control up to 32 individual partial sections. Even with non Isobus devices it is possible to virtually represent the partial sections enabling the operator to turn them on or off at precisely the right moment. ■
