SoilSeeker - a simple and cost-effective procedure for paddock zone mapping.
SoilSeeker can –
• record zones and produce maps for VRT (hire at fixed price per ha), OR
• provide direct, simultaneous VRT control
SoilSeeker monitors force on a tyne or a presswheel during sowing or cultivation.
Results are analysed to determine soil characteristics for use in VRT control.

FlowChoker... Prevent costly water waste and damage
Broken or leaking pipes can waste valuable water in irrigation and domestic
water supply systems. Overflowing hot water services, toilet cisterns or header
tanks can cause serious building damage.
Set FlowChoker to detect flow beyond a reasonable time limit. A cut-off valve
operates if this time is reached. Optional SMS alert system.
