Variable rate drilling in practice

Variable rate drilling in practice

SOYL will be addressing the Variable Rate drilling process.

SOYL will be addressing the VRT drilling process. This starts with an electrical conductivity survey which is used to create zones of different soil types, which are then assigned a % crop establishment figure. In order to establish the optimum plant numbers across the field the seed rate needs to be adjusted to compensate for these differences. This is done by creating a VRT seed rate map which is compatible with the drill.”
