NE Kent County, MI
So with the discussion below on different gps accuracy levels here is my question.. what is going to be most accurate for repeating field passes throughout the growing season (e.g. row cultivating)?
Currently run 6000 receiver with 450 radio on Deere network ~ 10 miles from tower. Advertised accuracy was +/-1” repeatable but more realistic accuracy was +/-2-3”. When it was good it’s great. Think some of the problem is when my signal would change to rtk extend. Had Deere tech out numerous times and can’t seem to improve it. Checked into digifarm but they’re not in my area currently, area rep said he’d let me know when they have coverage over this way.
BTW: I run a 3pt mount planter and cultivator and make sure I cultivate the same direction I plant. Same tractor too. TIA
