Abstract

Our Client, Bob Recker with Cedar Valley Innovation, presented us with a problem that most, if not all farmers are faced with when it comes to the time of year when they need to apply fertilizer or spray their crops with insecticides and fungicides. Secondary applications such as fertilizers and sprayers are coming into the field and running down or knocking over the crop. This has a negative economic impact in the headlands, specifically these run over crops and those around it. The negative economic impact can be addressed to decrease the chances of the crop being run over and in the long run increase yield, increase return on investments and stabilize soil conditions.
