In addition to the data collected by the Trimble GNSS navigator, other data from connected devices are increasingly available. Thanks to the ISOBUS technology, Trimble navigators act as universal terminals for controlling all the connected ISOBUS-compatible machines, including seed drills, spreaders, sprinklers and other machines.Most popular Trimble Ag products in Serbia
It is quite clear that Serbia is keeping up with the most developed countries. This can be seen from what the farmers in Serbia choose the most frequently – the Trimble Autopilot system – which enables automatic machine guiding and management. As a universal system, it can be installed in the most modern agricultural machines (tractors, combines, self-moving sprinklers), which are fully ready for this technology, as well as in technologically simpler and older machines, where automatic management is achieved through the installation of additional components. The autopilot accuracy is 2.5 cm, making the device applicable in the most demanding farming operations (sowing, inter-row cultivation, ridging in vegetable farming etc.).
The obvious benefits of using the Trimble systems have been recognized by a wide range of users in Serbia, from family farms with properties of 50 ha, to large agricultural companies with tens of thousands of hectares of arable surfaces.
Direct labor savings are achieved through the elimination of overlaps and spans between the passages, along with the reduction of fuel costs and input by as much as 20%. The costs of mechanization are also reduced and its life cycle extended, and operations in the field are carried out more quickly and efficiently, whereas those who control the machines get far less tired.
Equally as important are indirect savings, achieved through easier compliance with optimal agritechnical deadlines, less damage done to the crops due to imprecision, and reduced human error. Precision farming also leads to bigger yields and profits.
In addition to autopilots, present in numerous medium and large farms in Serbia, the implementation of even more advanced Trimble systems is growing. These systems enable a variable application of fertilizer and seeds in parcels, section control of machines, mapping of yields, wireless data transfer and numerous other solutions.
Nearly all products from the rich Trimble portfolio are present on Serbian farms, and there's a pronounced interest in new, even more advanced solutions. Of these, the recently announced Trimble autonomous systems, which will enable driverless tractor and combine operations, are especially interesting.
