Rivers, MB
One of the air drill manufacturers in western Canada has a program apparently that does what you are looking for. Think it’s SeedHawk.

We added sectional control to our 59’ nh3 applicator. Went to 5 sections. Reduced acres on each field by an average of 5.9%.

Added section control to our JD air drill 2 years ago. Reduced seeded acres by 5.5-6% as an average. Range was 3-7% approx. what I found interesting is some of our open squarish fields still had significant savings. Sometimes the last pass when you are finishing the last 10’ but applying 60’ can add acres in a hurry.
