Introducing full compatibility between tractors and implements

Home Agriculture Introducing full compatibility between tractors and implements

THE major advantage of Isobus technology in the agricultural industry is that it allows for full compatibility between tractors and implements, regardless of brands and models. The Isobus-compatible application combines modular field-IQ architecture with the new Trimble liquid control ECU. The field IQ Isobus controller is ideal for a range of equipment from sprayers to fertilisers and lime spreaders, manure spreaders, liquid toolbars, strip-till toolbars, effluent toolbars and planters.

Trimble Agriculture supplies solutions that solve complex technology challenges across the agricultural supply chain. In this regard, Trimble has created unique products to assist its customers to grow their businesses for over 30 years. Centurion-based Vantage SSA represents Trimble Agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa through an extensive dealer network.

“We pride ourselves on being experts in precision agriculture,” says GM at Vantage SSA, Jaco Viviers. The company serves as a centre of excellence for farmers, providing advice on the right combination of solutions and integrating the many complex processes across the farm.

“Our team has an extensive skillset in all areas of precision agriculture and is equipped to bring our industry-level technical expertise, customer service and support capabilities to your farm,” says Viviers. “We are committed to integrating and supporting a complete, end-to-end solution of hardware, software, positioning services and data for each farming operation’s unique requirements.”

Being the Africa partner of Trimble’s elite agriculture network allows Vantage SSA to offer a bouquet of benefits to its customers. These include a single source of expert, personalised precision agriculture consultation and local sales, maintenance and support services for all Trimble Agriculture products and solutions.

“We are skilled in combining agronomic recommendations with precision agriculture technology. We alleviate the stress and time constraints caused by trying to coordinate multiple vendors,” says Viviers. He adds that the combination of Vantage SSA’s expertise with precision agriculture hardware, software and service allows farmers to plant smarter, grow better and harvest more.

The unique advantage of the Trimble Field-IQ Isobus Liquid control system is that it can connect any ISO terminal to the implement after ECU configuration. Not only can existing Trimble Field-IQ install kits be used, but implement set-up is a cinch with standard configuration and calibration screens.
