“With IsoMatch GEOCONTROL and the GEOSPREAD I am saving 10% on fertiliser.”
Peter from Germany has already been working with Kverneland machines for 10 years. He recently invested in a Kverneland Exacta CL GEOSPREAD.
“The machines are reliable and the operation is very simple”, he says. “The equal distribution of fertiliser is very important. We have decided to buy a Kverneland spreader, because of the number of vanes per disc”, says Peter. He elaborates: “We took into consideration that the 8 vanes per disc ensure a more continuous flow of fertiliser and a more equal spreading pattern than spreaders with 2 vanes per disc.
Intuitive control with the IsoMatch Tellus GO
“Up to now we are only using the IsoMatch Tellus GO for the disc spreader, but as we would like to invest in some more Kverneland machines in the future, we can use this terminal for more machines as well. The terminal has an intuitive design which enables you to easily find your way around the menu. The automatic start and stop function on headlands saves on fertiliser.” Peter tells us that it could be realistic to say that using GEOSPREAD brought them a savings of even 10%. The reason for these savings is that they first make one pass around the fields and afterwards the sections switch automatically, the spreader adjusts itself.
Whether you are a farmer or contractor with a fleet, IsoMatch FarmCentre gives you a complete overview of your business. You can track the movement of your fleet in real time or verify later where your machines have been operating. Keeping track of multiple machines spread over vast areas has never been so easy! Additionally, all alerts and notifications are sent directly to the IsoMatch FarmCentre web application, and the history of alerts is saved. With IsoMatch FarmCentre, machine performance parameters can be tracked and analysed for optimal performance. Actual information about quantity of pressed bales, fertiliser consumption and more is shown in the application. All this you can check remotely from a computer or even a tablet or smartphone.

i-Plough - Easy Adjustment of Plough Settings with ISOBUS Technology
With the Kverneland i-Plough, customers are getting their hands on the very latest technology, choosing the model for its ability to deliver repeatable accuracy thanks to FURROWcontrol.
FURROWcontrol is a software application developed by Kverneland’s Mechatronics Centre that combines hydraulic vari-width and ISOBUS to automatically manage the i-Plough’s furrow width during plowing. It follows A/B lines and uses a GPS signal to automatically open and close the working width of the plough as it travels across a field. Doing so removes any bend from the ploughing, and is guaranteed to maintain a straight line, even when ploughing in the dark.
With ISOBUS technology at its core, the 2500-series i-Plough enables easy adjustment of plough settings. From an in-cab terminal, operators can set left and right-hand turnover angle, straighten furrows using an A-B line, set the plough for marking out, and swap from transport to working modes - all at the touch of a button.
One of the first i-ploughs to go to work is bought by Lour Farms in Angus, Scotland. Farm manager Mike Cumming places a lot of importance on primary cultivations, and demands a high-quality finish at every stage of crop production.
“The i-Plough is the ideal implement to deliver arrow-straight furrows in all conditions,” he says. “Technology makes life easier for my operator, and with 600 acres of winter ploughing, we can achieve a superior finish that makes the most of frosty conditions.”
“When working across sloping fields, for example, we can tweak the plough angle on-the-move to ensure that furrows are rolled over properly,” he adds. “We do value how our farm looks, and the ability to achieve a high-quality finish across all our soil types is essential,” he says.
