Trimble will be showcasing its latest farming technology at Cereals attendees will be able to enter their name into a draw for a chance to win a Trimble® CFX-750™ display and EZ-Pilot® assisted steering system.
Trimble will be showcasing the latest functionality of its Android™-based TMX-2050™ display including xFill® Premium, powered by Trimble RTX™ technology, which provides an unlimited backup correction source during RTK or VRS outages and maintains accuracy of 4 centimeters or better. xFill Premium runs in the background, and automatically engages when needed so farmers can be confident of a seamless transition. With xFill Premium, farmers can work without interruption if their primary signal experiences an outage or interruption.
Visitors will also be able to see NextSwath™ the end-of-row turn technology, which is available on the TMX-2050 display when using the Autopilot™ automated steering system. NextSwath automatically calculates and executes the best possible path to turn the farm vehicle around to approach the next crop row with the implement precisely aligned to begin working. The technology reduces towed implement undershooting or overshooting, and minimizes skips and overlaps when lining up for the next row. As a result, it enables growers to save on fuel costs, reduce crop damage and compaction, and increase yield.
Earlier this year Trimble introduced the MMX-070 display—a portable 7-inch Android-based device—into the European market. The display combines the capabilities of a precision farming display with the advantages of a tablet. It can be used in the cab for precision agriculture tasks, used in the field for scouting and mapping, taken to the office for planning and data analysis, and is easily transferred between farm vehicles.
The display allows farmers to use one device for multiple activities, providing increased versatility and convenience. The MMX-070 display can be used as a manual guidance system in the tractor cab and as an ISOBUS Universal Terminal, which ensures the display can communicate with and control implements that use ISOBUS standards. It also features Wi-Fi connectivity and provides access to the Ag App Central marketplace. The MMX-070 display is an entry-level product for farmers who are beginning to use precision agriculture solutions, but is also easily upgradeable so they can add more advanced capabilities as their needs evolve.
Trimble has also has introduced more flexibility and options for both the TMX-2050 and CFX-750 displays to provide farmers, with varying precision agriculture needs, price points and farm size. With the TMX-2050 display, customers have the option to purchase the current version that includes both the Precision-IQ™ and FmX® Plus applications, or a new version that focuses on Precision-IQ. The FmX Plus application leverages the same familiar workflows and menus of the Trimble FmX integrated display, while taking advantage of the latest advancements in hardware, processing speed and field connectivity of the TMX-2050 display. Precision-IQ provides a graphics-rich and intuitive workflow in an application specialized for auto-guidance and standardized protocols including ISOBUS.
In addition to the current version of the CFX-750 display, which includes auto-guidance capabilities and application control, Trimble has also launched a CFX-750 Lite display version. CFX-750 Lite provides a simplified set up and price point that make it easier for new users to adopt precision farming technology, and is upgradeable to allow the user to access higher functionalities such as auto-guidance and application control.
“Cereals provides Trimble with a unique opportunity to talk with UK farmers one-on-one,” said Markus Meyer, EMEA sales director for Trimble’s Agriculture Division. “By looking at the farmer’s needs and challenges, we are able to provide them with a recommended set of Trimble solutions that can save on inputs, streamline processes and enable them to make better decisions based on real-time data.”
