To compliment thegreat rangeof JohnDeereprecision farming solutions, we arepleased toannounce
a partnershipwith Sixty-5 Technologies for their innovative Grass-Guide entry-level guidance system.
Sixty-5; a Belfast based agri-software company have developed a
simple-to-use, Android tablet based guidance product that uses
both GPS and GLONASS for a pass-to-pass accuracy of +/-15cm.
The Grass-Guide was developed with the grass-land / livestock farmer
in mind; giving these users a simple to use tool for fertiliser spread-
ing, spraying and grassland management, that enables them to take
advantage of the core technology employed on larger arable farms
but at a an affordable price.
Simplicity of use; the product requires no training or
learning, simply enter in the machine dimensions press ‘Start Job’ and
then switch the guidance on by the press of one button in the centre
of the screen, Grass-Guide simply maps where you've been, shows
you the heading in which you are travelling and places a next pass
guideline on the screen enabling the user to drive as they wish with
the information displayed reduce overlapping and misses.
Tablet based system; Grass-Guide comes complete with the latest Samsung 7” tablet that is used as the op-
erational screen, the tablet is a fully functional Android based system with the Grass-Guide software taking the form
of an App. This has the benefit that the tablet can be used for other purposes such as emails and internet browsing.
With the software being in an App format means that it doesn't go out of date just as periodic updating of Apps on
your phone happens Grass-Guide will be periodically updated free of charge meaning an investment today will be
future proof in terms always having the latest operating software.
Recording and storage of treatment data; When a treatment has been completed, Grass-Guide produces an
two dimensional map that is date and time stamped as well as being accurate in terms of geo-location. Using the
tablet’s built in WiFi this 2D map is then synced to dedicated cloud based portal where the user can can view the
maps on Google Earth™ and add in notes about the operation. These maps are strictly private and belong to the user
to use as he sees fit for traceability and farm management purposes.
