Has anyone managed to get an amazone hydro profis with the amatron + screen to work with gps doing auto shutoff?
Spreader is non isobus , has weigh cells with the 3 section shutoff on each side. We havnt got the extra amazone gps switch box, and was wondering is it possible to link it to the tractor gps instead. Tractor in question is a fendt 724 with section control unlocked if that makes any difference.

If it’s not isobus it won’t work. You will need a separate ecru to Communicate via serial . Something like a Trimble field in or topcon asc-10

I have a hydro profis running through an Amatron 3 with section control on a John Deere. We have a Y connector on the gps dome plug. One goes to the tractor for steering,the other to the Amatron 3 for mapping and section control.
it needs a separate speed feed as it can’t use the gps data for speed.

Please clarify, this is with a "non-isobus hydro profis"?

Yes, no isobus on my tractors.

I'm still confused. Are you saying you have a JD screen running section control but no isobus on the tractor? Or is it Amatron 3 taking care of section control (the tractor being a John Deere not relevant then)? The latter is obvious, either GPS Switch or Amatron 3 or similar (Amapad etc.) that handle the non-isobus section control via Amatron+.

Tractor irrelevant. Split feed from dome goes into GPS socket on bottom right. The Amatron 3 is unlocked to do section control and headland switching on and off. I think this was a £1000 option when new. I bought it second hand ,3 seasons old for £5500 so original owner had taken a big hit on depreciation.

This is potentially the only option although without talking to them I’m not sure they can control amazone. Not mentioned on website but they are developing it all the time.

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
