Agriculture Industry Benefits from Fleet Tracking

Agriculture Industry Benefits from Fleet Tracking
January 16, 2015 Fleet Tracking Editor

Agricultural fleets operate in the midst of some of the dirtiest and most abusive environments available. Companies in the agricultural industry expect a lot from their machinery, because their business could not operate without it. With GPS tracking software from Rhino Fleet Tracking, you will have the enhanced fleet management techniques to monitor the location of your machinery, protect its condition, simplify the operation of your business, and maximize your return on investment.

Farming equipment is a significant investment for companies in the agriculture industry. With GPS technology you can minimize unnecessary wear and tear on this expensive equipment to prolong its operational life. Fleet tracking systems will allow you to locate your farming equipment anywhere, at any time of day. In the event of hazardous weather conditions, real-time location data will allow you to quickly retrieve your machinery. This will prevent harsh weather from damaging your equipment, and forcing you to pay for expensive repairs or replacements. Certain fleet tracking systems also allow you to program maintenance alerts. This will notify you when it is time for a component of your fleet to receive a routine maintenance procedure. By allowing you to avoid equipment damage due to harsh weather and insufficient preventative maintenance, fleet tracking will keep you one step ahead of equipment wear and tear. This will protect the life span of your fleet to ensure that you are getting the highest return on your equipment investment.

Fleet tracking can also help to organize your land and crops, ensuring that each area is getting the specific attention it requires. GPS fleet management systems can be programmed to arrange your land based on a system of geofences and landmarks. Geofences are geographical boundaries established around certain plots of land. When geofences or landmarks are inappropriately crossed, fleet managers will be immediately notified. This helps to establish the areas that need fertilizing, harvesting, crop dusting, and so on, to ensure that each plot of land is receiving the appropriate cultivation. In turn, this will prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your machinery, the needless delivery of expensive cultivation procedures, and damage to certain plots of land.

Another one of the many major benefits of GPS vehicle management in the agriculture industry is enhanced analytics potential. Using exact time and location data for each component of your fleet to compliment observations about your crop yield volume and quality will enhance your reporting and analytics efforts. This will give you even more data about the effects of your farming techniques to allow you to improve your utilization, productivity, performance, and harvest.

GPS technology is improving every day, with new systems being developed to even promote land maintenance without human labor.
