The range of technologies available to farmers to increase efficiency and profitability while also improving sustainability is growing all the time.
To bring together the best-in-class, easy-to-use technologies, New Holland has launched its new aftermarket precision farming brand, AgXtend. Initially, five innovative solutions will be available through AgXtend, all of which can be fully integrated into New Holland Agriculture’s existing PLM precision farming platforms.
CropXplorer is a highly advanced biomass sensor which uses exclusive features and algorithms to determine fertilization rate based on crop needs. It’s simple to use, requires no calibration and can be mounted on a standard 3 points hitch or front weight.
SoilXplorer allows users to discover the full potential of their soils using a contactless sensor to measure soil conductivity at four different depths. This results in accurate soil mapping, identifying areas of compaction allowing tillage implements to work at full depth only where needed.
The new crop NIR sensor can be mounted on all types of equipment: forage harvesters, combines, balers and tankers. It allows farmers to determine yield moisture as well as crop constituents.
Xpower is the electro-herbicide that allows farmers to replace chemicals with electricity for weeding and pre-harvest desiccation of crops, and the package is completed by the new FarmXtend App, a smart weather application working with a complete set of connected sensors.
Full details of the AgXtend offering are available from our specialist Andrew Collier on 07769 931553, or at agxtend.com where there are also downloadable brochures on each of the components.
