Steadily improving the efficiency of your machinery is key in obtaining higher yield with less effort, making your business more profitable and environmentally friendly.
Saving resources, optimising farming operations and safeguarding the environment are key goals for farmers and contractors that work large plots of land or are engaged in intensive farming.
This is why McCormick has adopted the innovative Precision Steering Management (PSM) system, a set of integrated devices for satellite-assisted guidance that improve the efficiency of operations and increase productivity.
PSM cuts your productions costs, helping you save time, fuel and crop protection chemicals.
To offer you the best, we chose to rely on the solutions designed by Topcon, the leader in cutting-edge solutions for precision farming.
Advantages of Precision Steering Management (PSM)
The new challenge for precision farming is to strike a balance between the productivity and operating costs of machinery. This is why the technology offered by Precision Steering Management are aimed at offering added value through operating efficiency and lower investment costs under any working conditions.
Besides being innovative, these technologies are accessible to everyone through user-friendly, easy-to-use interfaces.
The key benefits of PSM can be summed up in three points:
- cost reduction
- machinery efficiency
- environmental protection
Reduction of hourly costs
Precision Steering Management lets you reduce hourly costs: field operations become faster, easier and more precise when you elaborate paths with an accuracy down to 2 cm.
You can save passes and repeat them at subsequent time with the same degree of accuracy.
Greater operating efficiency
Reducing operating times offers many benefits: greater efficiency, fuel savings and less overlap.
This also improves driver conditions: less driving effort means improved comfort and the operator is free to focus on other aspects of the farming operation, such as the manoeuvres of implements.
The graphic interface lets you monitor operation in real time, and offers a number of handy information about the progress of the operation as it is carried out.
All this combines to achieve better performance and higher precision in farming operations.
Benefits for the environment
Improved efficiency results in ideal reduction in environmental impact thanks to lower fuel consumption. The high precision of PSM also reduces the waste of fertilisers and herbicides, with more efficient field operations.
Public tenders concerning Agriculture 4.0 can be a source of funding to adopt these technologies: information can be found on the websites of your local and regional authorities and trade associations.
Improved efficiency through optimised operations
If you are looking to improve productivity and operator working conditions, the assisted guidance system offered by McCormick in collaboration with Topcon, is the ideal solution for you. It is as profitable as it is easy to learn and use.
McCormick offers several solutions according to your needs, ranging from visual path tracing for daily operations to automated steering for farming operations that require the utmost accuracy.
The touchscreen console lets you keep everything under control and monitor the whole process on a single display, ranging from the compact X14 through to the feature-packed X35, to manage increasingly complex operations with set-ups to suit crops of all sizes.
