The right amount of nitrogen, right when you need it
In today’s tight market, managing input costs is critical. But no one wants to cut costs on the inputs that drive yield. Nitrogen is typically the second most expensive input. Getting the most efficiency out of this investment is critical. 360 Y-DROP expands your application options – making it possible to wait longer into the growing season to fine tune application to match the growing environment and the plant’s needs.
- Four position adjustable arms allow for precision placement in 15-inch to 36-inch rows and variable rate nozzles are available for precise rate control.
- Breakaway mounting brackets and a flexible riser allow for easier navigation across hills and uneven terrain.
- Curved hoses follow the corn rows and won’t flop or “dance” which ensures nitrogen is delivered to the soil, not the stalk or leaves.

Spinner Speed Control
Automatically control spinner speed for spreader application systems.
During harvest, you can accurately view, map, and record crop yield and moisture data in real-time to instantly understand how well your crop performed. Functionality is dependent on which Trimble display you use.
Map and compare the performance of different seed varieties throughout your field.
Determine if grain needs to be stored or dried based on the in-field moisture content
Record the amount of grain harvested and loaded onto your trucks.
Adjust the cut width automatically when traveling over odd-shaped fields, point rows, or other previously harvested areas to improve the accuracy of yield calculations.
In-office Yield Analysis
Think of your yield map as an assessment of your crop. You can import your yield map into Farm Works Software® to view and assess the performance of your fields.
Identify high- and low-performance areas, determine the best seed variety for your farm, reconcile yield maps with the actual load ticket data, and generate reports.
The assessment of your crop yield will help you develop a plan for your fields the next year. Use the yield map within Farm Works Software to determine why your crop performed the way it did and design a strategy for the land prep and planting season.
Create prescription maps for variable rate application, budget your seed, chemical, and/or fertilizer costs, and create a plan for optimal water management.
Successful farmers track every detail of their operations. With lower commodity prices putting pressure on profits, and the move to precision ag adding new complexities, mobile-friendly farm management software is a requirement for farming today.
Most farm software tools require users to spend hours in front of a computer — something farmers simply don’t have time for. Trimble Ag Software is different. Mobile-enabled for your busy lifestyle, our mobile farming app works on both Apple iOS and Android devices. And it continues to work even if you lose your WiFi or cellular signal.
With Trimble Ag Software, you can:
- Compare crop inputs for a field year over year
- Track your grain storage and contracts
- Record crop scouting findings and share them with Vantage South
- Track your expenditures and see a running cost per acre for each field
- Create management zones, soil sample targets and variable rate prescription maps
- Monitor equipment location and utilization, such as idling time and speed
The Trimble® UX5 Aerial Imaging Solution is an easy to use, fully automated, high precision system for capturing images with resolution down to 1 cm. Captured imagery is processed through the Trimble Business Center (TBC) solution, using an intuitive workflow that allows you to create crisp orthomosaics and 3D models for agronomic and topographic agriculture applications.
Imagery produced by TBC can also be uploaded to Connected Farm™ to compute vegetation vigor maps with indexes such as NDVI.
Superior Image Acquisition and Accuracy
The UX5 HP delivers precise data by integrating a high-performance Trimble GNSS receiver and a superior camera. PPK GNSS technology is used to establish very accurate image locations in absolute coordinate systems, eliminating the need for ground control. As a result, less time is spent in the field and high precision results can be achieved even in the most inaccessible areas. With PPK, georeferencing aerial data is more robust and accurate than RTK, providing a superior level of reliability and accuracy. Use either your own base station or work with data from reference stations to georeference your deliverables with the highest accuracy possible.
The UX5 HP is an extremely safe and durable system, made from impact resistant foam, that can withstand extreme temperatures, winds up to 55 km/h, and light rain—making it ideal for use in conditions that most unmanned aircrafts struggle to operate in. Engineered with an advanced reverse thrust technology, you can count on accurate and predictable landings in confined areas. The UX5 HP is easy to maintain with an airframe that can be renewed as needed. Whether you work with row crops, vegetables, or fruit trees, the UX5 HP will continue to capture the highest quality data, flight after flight.
Controlling flow at the nozzle body has proven to be a game changer. Add to that doing the control on an individual nozzle level, and you have what everyone has been asking for years.
Add a simple to use but highly sophisticated control system and you are able to apply with the accuracy and precision needed to achieve optimal results.
Conventional sprayers are bound by an approach that’s been outdated for decades. They require you to manage speed, pressure, and other variables hoping to get as close as possible to the application you’re after – how can that be right?
Our patented technology are the innovations that change everything. The system maintains constant pressure and control is moved to the nozzle. Always the right rate and always your chosen droplet size to assure an incredibly consistent application. Speed up, slow down, turn, overlap, or any combination of them, and your application stays consistent every time.
An Incredible Feature Set
From overlap/boundry control, to instant on/off, to individual nozzle control, to one-button ease of operation, the list goes on and on. Once you see PinPoint® II in action you won’t be able to apply any other way.
Trimble® VerticalPoint RTK™ Grade Control provides enhanced vertical accuracy and stability of standard single-baseline RTK systems reducing the downtime and costly delays experienced by many agriculture land improvement contractors today. VerticalPoint RTK is currently available as an unlock on the Trimble FmX integrated and TMX-2050 displays and works in combination with the Trimble FieldLevel II system, which streamlines the surveying, designing and leveling steps required for land leveling projects.
The system also includes two stationary supplemental rovers for live, dynamic data collection. When vertical accuracy inconsistencies occur, agriculture contractors must wait to re-start leveling until the vertical signal is once again accurate, and in some instances even rework portions of the field that were incorrectly leveled before the vertical signal inconsistency was discovered. VerticalPoint RTK significantly reduces vertical design errors in leveling and land forming projects, which occur from inconsistent vertical GPS signals resulting from atmospheric interference.
With VerticalPoint RTK, contractors can experience an approximate 25% increase in overall uptime. Currently the industry experiences about 75% uptime. However, with VerticalPoint RTK uptime can increase to approximately 95%.
“On average during the summer months we may see 5-6 hours a day where we don’t have the level of vertical GPS accuracy that we need to complete finish passes,” said Jarrett Lawfield, owner of Lawfield Land Grading, a custom land leveling business. “At times all we lack is a finish pass and then we very well may have to stop and wait. I can’t get onto the next job since I’m waiting for the vertical accuracy to be where it needs to be. The vertical accuracy capabilities of VerticalPoint RTK allows the whole project — from bulk hauling to finish passes — to be more efficient.”
