Have the above and it seems to loose Gps signal easily when going under trees and takes several minutes to regain signal. It only has 8 satellites in the middle of the field. How can we get it receiving more satellites? We are near Taunton FYI.

There is an unlocks tab on one of the home screens, it's been a while since I've been in front of an FMX.
It gives you a list of the features with either a padlock or blue tick to show what is unlocked.

Had a look and no it’s not unlocked for Glonass, enquired and going to cost £600 to unlock, is it worth it?
Hopefully get a demo of it first.

At £600 you could get an AgOpenGPS setup running on RTK with a dual frequency quadruple constellation (GPS/Glonass/Galileo/Beidou) GNSS receiver. Not exactly apples-to-apples comparison but gives an idea what £600 should give you.

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
