  • Improve Soil Health

  • Increase Production

  • Build resilience against drought

  • Reduce fuel use by 50%



Connectivity in Cab

  • Remote diagnostic analysis

  • Rapid data transfer - cloud

  • Inter-vehicle communication

  • Mobile office, e-commerce etc…

  • All data is stored in an intuitive explorer view, in a hierarchy system with the following levels:

  • Project

    • Client

      • Farm

        • Paddock
