Trimble Conducts Live Demonstrations Of NextSwath End Of Row Turns With Automatic Implement Compensation For Agriculture

BOONE, Iowa, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it is conducting live demonstrations of its cutting-edge NextSwath™ end of row turn technology at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa. Trimble's NextSwath with implement compensation technology enables any farm machine—regardless of machine type, implement type or manufacturer—to calculate the best possible path to turn around and approach the next crop row or swath. By optimizing the turn for the implement, NextSwath technology can eliminate towed implement undershooting or overshooting, and minimize skips and overlaps when lining up for the next row. This improved turning efficiency and repeatability can increase yield while also saving time and fuel costs. NextSwath demonstrates Trimble's continued leadership in next generation machine and implement guidance.

"The implement is actually doing the work in the soil, so we've made it the focal point for the turn. With NextSwath technology, we're turning the tractor in a path that is more precise for the implement to begin working—which is what operators really care most about," said Erik Ehn, Smart Machines business area director of Trimble's Agriculture Division. "We're able to avoid unnecessary driving, overshooting and compensating the tractor to get the implement on line for the next row."

NextSwath Makes Every Operator a Great Operator

When approaching the end of a crop row, the system will determine the NextSwath end of row sequence. Once engaged, NextSwath will automatically enable the vehicle to make the most efficient turn in order to align it and the implement to the beginning of the next row or swath. This saves time in the field, increases machine efficiency and improves productivity since the operator does not need to manually re-align to the next row. The ability to make tighter end of row turns with pull-type implements can also reduce the headland space needed at the end of the field for turning machines. In addition to the onboard automation, farm managers can use the equipment utilization functionality in Connected Farm to observe and measure the efficiencies gained by automating the end of row turns.
