Benefits to Utilizing RTK

  • Reduced overlap:  A producer running RTK can operate at 1-in. pass-to-pass accuracy. The less overlap there is, less inputs are used, which helps drive down overall costs. It also reduces passes in the field for each task every season.
  • No satellite drift: Inherent to any satellite-based guidance system, drift occurs. Whether it is starting up a tractor  in the morning or servicing it during the day, A-B lines can drift during those time periods. With RTK, satellite drift is completely taken out, because the stationary, local base station is now providing the corrections.   
  • Additional functionality:  RTK also enables some of the latest John Deere products. New products like iGuide™ and iSteer™ require RTK corrections to provide the precise accuracy producers need.
