Letter From Lew - March 2022

2022 has already been a tough year for many farmers, with rain and flooding resulting in crop and yield loss for many across Eastern Australia. Unfortunately, things don’t seem to be getting easier.

A few months ago, we discussed how recent input cost rises were putting increased pressure on operating margins for farmers.

Since that time, there has been no relief. In fact, diesel prices are now more expensive than they were in January. These major weather events, coupled with supply chain issues and international conflict, has resulted in input costs rising further.

With this in mind, we’d like to take some time to revisit some of the Trimble and MagrowTec solutions that can help you better manage your input costs.

To help you better understand these solutions and how they will save you money we have created a dedicated page on our website.

On this page, you’ll find savings calculators that allow you to input the specifics of your farm using your costs to determine the saving potential.

We also outline 4 major ways you can save using:

  • Trimble WeedSeeker 2 spot spray system to reduce chemical usage
  • Trimble flow and application controllers to eliminate overlap
  • Trimble RTX GNSS solutions to improve accuracy and therefore lower inputs
  • And MagrowTec spray technology to improve chemical efficacy and reduce inputs

To learn more about how these systems, we suggest you take a closer look at the Farm Inputs cost page below.
