Manterra has announced the launch of its new RTK radio network package to improve efficiencies in the field.
Called TerraNet it has been developed in response to a growing need for a one stop network access, service support and on farm training package for farmers in the North of England.
TerraNet is designed for users of Trimble, Case and New Holland precision farming technologies, TerraNet radio correction signal is competitively priced at £450 per tractor, with discounts for multiple licences. A second machine costs £400, third and subsequent machines cost £350 to put on the network when owned by one business. Subscribers to the network can roam around the network from base to base at no additional cost, giving farmers and contractors the flexibility they need in the modern agricultural world.
The company is also launching a service package at the same time as TerraNet. For an annual fee of £150 for the first vehicle, and £50 for subsequent machines, the customer gets an annual farm visit during which the integrity of the system will be checked and software updated to the latest standards. The visit will also include onsite training for staff in areas which have been agreed before the visit. All too often technology on farm is not optimised as staff have, quite understandably, forgotten the details of how to operate it over the winter months.
Customers who subscribe to both the service contract and Terranet will get a discount on the cost of the service plan. The result is a package of service and support which directly addresses the most pressing needs of the industry.
