Just on the point of ordering the kit to build an AgOpen setup and they throw this one back into the mix!

Do you think a 4880 Euro kit (VAT 0%?) is comparable with AOG?

Of course it is difficult to compare AOG with commercial products as AOG asks at least some do-it-yourself work, even if one would order a pre-built cirbuit board and box. Cost difference is still huge.

I do understand that a commercial kit at this price range attracts some farmers (AOG others).

Yes I agree, no real comparison.

My thoughts are; AOG software has the potential to be more accurate and capable? Would probably build a set up accurate enough for drilling on a budget of £2k. Bit more work involved to fabricate a steering motor + bracket, no problem with that. My main reservation is around setting up and tuning.

Benefits of FieldBee are an off the shelf steering motor and telephone support, for an extra £2.5k. Still tied in to annual subscription (all be it small) to use and keep data on the app.

The Rivers Trust has today launched its State of Our Rivers report aiming to allow the English public understand and explore the health of their rivers on a national and local scale.

Environment Minister Rebecca Pow and Environment Agency Director John Leyland attended the launch panel to discuss the ways in which the...
