When used appropriately, precision agriculture can reduce waste, increase profits, and support environmental protection. Headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., Hemisphere GPS is on the front lines of technological change in agribusinesses. The company called upon Integrated Computer Solutions, Inc. (ICS) to help develop a next-gen, high-resolution touchscreen user interface (UI) for a precision agriculture product, one that offers technological flexibility and scalability.
The UI allows users to deftly steer the machinery and complete a predefined job, such as seed, plow or harvest. It also provides easy-to-read job data and system-status information in real time, helping operators minimize costs and increase productivity by more efficiently applying seed and chemicals only where needed. With this type of market-leading technology, Hemisphere helps businesses farm their land more accurately and efficiently, decreasing use of expensive resources such as fuel and seed.
