Turn waste into a valuable commodity. Spreading nutrients allows you to grow more crops while reducing the cost of your fertilizer bill and protecting the environment.
Trimble’s livestock manure management solutions include:
Guidance and Steering
Trimble assisted or automated steering systems enable hands-free guidance allowing you to operate efficiently and extend your operating hours. No matter the size of farm, Trimble offers a steering system that fits your needs.
Reduce driver fatigue by taking the hassle out of steering the tractor
Eliminate skips and overlaps ensuring even coverage without doubling up in any areas
Create uniform rows that will allow the crop to wilt evenly for the best quality
Liquid and Dry Spreading
Trimble’s CFX-750™ display helps you accurately map and apply dry manure when spreading. Ensure that the application of manure is within an acceptable zone or not dispersing where regulations prohibit. Record the location of dispersals into the farm environment and keep track of nutrients applied.
Compatible with Krohne flowmeters and Field-IQ™ crop input control system for variable rate application of liquid manure spreading
Connects to a Digi-Star scale for dry manure spreading to ensure a uniform application
Share guidance lines and coverage maps between multiple manure spreaders in the same field using Vehicle Sync
Trimble’s GreenSeeker® crop sensing system allows precise management of crop input application on-the-go. Fields that have been applied with manure have access to various levels of nitrogen based on soil types and weather conditions. GreenSeeker eliminates the guesswork by feeding the plant with the exact amount of nitrogen it needs at the right time, regardless of field conditions. This provides a higher yielding environment for crops used for feed.
Trimble’s RainWave® precipitation monitoring solution provides you with vital rainfall data, allowing you to make better management decisions for irrigation planning, vehicle deployment, and timing of material application for nutrient and pest management.
Check rainfall totals accumulated over a 24-hour period from a virtual rain gauge
View a graph of actual rainfall activity in 10-minute increments to gain a better understanding of the rainfall intensity
Use rainfall data to make informed decisions for dry and liquid manure spreading or other farming operations
Trimble’s Connected Farm™ solution allows you automate your manure record keeping by transferring your as-applied maps wirelessly to the office. Detailed maps and reports can be printed for each field so that you comply with environmental regulations.
Save time by avoiding USB drives for data transfer
Transfer data wirelessly between the field and office such as variable rate prescription maps and as-applied maps
Easily fulfill EPA and DNA manure handling record-keeping requirements
As you continue to grow your farming business and cover more acres, fleet management is vital during the busiest times of the year such as forage harvesting. Trimble’s Connected Farm solution can help manage your fleet and provide information to improve efficiency and productivity.
