Smucker Mfg. and a Canadian based developer have teamed up in creating the LandMark GPS Guidance System, for a very user friendly electronic guidance system.

The LandMark GPS Guidance System is an agricultural product that helps operators apply seed, nutrients, and pesticides easily and efficiently. This product combines sophisticated GPS technology with virtual reality and data management software for a real-time accurate, and easy-to-use guidance system.

Whether spraying, fertilizing, spreading or seeding, the LandMark GPS system gives precise guidance and optimizes coverage while improving operational efficiencies. The latest software also allows you to control the sprayer/spreader unit attached to your system and keeps track of the area covered and material used. It automatically remembers the headlands you'll be spraying, and prevents you from over-spraying areas you've already covered. The applicator cuts down on wasted input materials and fuel by driving equally spaced swaths.

In creating the LandMark GPS system, we first asked customers what key features they wanted in a simple guidance system. The result was a new guidance product that is intuitive and extremely easy to use. Set up the system once and your field operation is completely hands-off. The LandMark GPS retains set-up and trajectory information.
