CTF harvest - Australian style!

01 Nov 2014 17:57 | Tim Chamen (Administrator)

We received this Youtube link from Innovation Farm showing barley being harvested with a CTF system - which is very evident in places but has the odd "off piste" moment if you can spot it! Which of the drivers controls the position of the unloading auger I wonder - the target is pretty small when travelling at that speed!

Certainly an impressive operation with filming making extensive use of a UAV - suddenly very popular across the world. Did CTF Europe with the help of Juha Knaapi start the trend I wonder with this video taken over 12 months ago? 

Also worth looking at is Andrew Williamson's article on realising the full potential of precision agriculture. I think however that the constraints to CTF adoption in the UK are not as great as he imagines, as indicated in my response to his excellent blog.
