Potential of controlled traffic farming with automatic guidance on an organic farm in the Netherlands

Potential of controlled traffic farming with automatic guidance on an organic farm in the Netherlands

Precision agriculture ' 07 Papers presented at the 6th European Conference on Precision Agriculture, Skiathos, Greece, 3-6 June, 2007: 473-481

Some organic farms in the Netherlands use RTK-DGPS guidance of machinery over fixed traffic lanes to achieve non-trafficked cropping zones with optimum soil structure. These lanes are not yet used for harvesting and primary tillage. The potential of such a seasonal controlled traffic farming (SCTF) system was evaluated.
