For years farmers have been improving their crop yields by using laser systems to level their fields for uniform drainage and runoff. The consistent water flow over the crops improves crop yields and ground consistency, which improves profits. AgGPS® MultiPlane® software is a tool used to help design drainage slopes for crop fields that can be graded with minimal dirt movement. MultiPlane software is designed to work with the Trimble GeoStar® land forming system or a Trimble AgGPS Field Information System* with an AgGPS 214 RTK high accuracy GPS receiver. MultiPlane software reads field topographic surveys collected with an AgGPS Field Information System and AgGPS 214 receiver or GeoStar system and builds an existing surface model from the survey. Use MultiPlane software to help you design how you want to level the field. Look at 3-D views of your field. Then use the slope information to set your laser for grading, or export the cut and fill design to a control file that the GeoStar system uses to automatically grade the field. Fields can be designed to be one uniformly sloped field or divided into multiple sections that can be individually designed. Ag GPS MultiPlane software allows the user to design the field, and when used with AgGPS AGIS, allows comparison of alternative designs based on investment versus expected return on investment. AgGPS AGIS is an agricultural information system that processes all precision agriculture data, and allows the user to make informed decisions.
