Description

Starting on February 2nd the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) sponsored state-wide RTK network (IaRTN) is now fully functional and open for public use. The potential uses of this technology in agriculture are wide spread and will complement the strong recent growth in precision agriculture and machinery automation. Questions still remain though regarding exactly what equipment will be compatible with the IaRTN and how producers should navigate the decision making process when evaluating equipment purchases.
