While I get my rtk up and running I'm going to have to use something different signal wise.
I assumed I'd see egnos in the list.

But it's got autonomous, or sbas.
What's better accuracy?

Just parked in the barn which can only see a little sky

And it's still got 14 satellites much to my amazement.
Still got useable signal.
Will it do for section control?

SBAS means satellite based augmentation system and here it means EGNOS. WAAS in the US etc.

Usually SBAS (EGNOS) would be better than autonomous. The drawback is that so far EGNOS covers only GPS satellites while your receiver must be a multi-constellation device, GLONASS and Galileo, perhaps Beidou too. In autonomous mode you would have three, four times more satellites but the pass-to-pass accuracy is still likely worse than GPS only with EGNOS.

Thanks, I found some info in another thread.

Yes lots more sats in autonomous, but if the accuracy is pants it's not much use really. It will only be used for section and rate control not steering though. However if it shuts off in the wrong place I could have some pretty big misses.
 

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...
