Guidance Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Back in 1997, manual and automated steering systems were introduced for use in agriculture. These first guidance systems were used in Australia and have improved greatly in accuracy, ease-of-use and functionality since then.

Kayla Reynolds, product marketing manager for John Deere Ag Management Systems, says the scalability and affordability of these newer systems give producers who farm from 500 to 50,000 acres a chance to use and benefit from this technology and expand it to include mapping and variable-rate applications.
