AgJunction introduces Wheelman, a new way to automatically and accurately steer farm equipment at a price that pays back in just one season for growers working as few as 250 acres.

“We believe that all farmers should prosper, and with autosteering, farmers can reduce input costs and increase yields,” says AgJunction CEO Dave Vaughn. “With Wheelman, we will bring the technology used by the largest farm operations to 1 million smaller farms worldwide.”

With precision agriculture, commodity crops can be farmed profitably. Precision agriculture starts with automatically and accurately steering farm equipment to prevent overlap, reduce input, labor, and equipment costs, and increase yields. The USDA estimates that autosteering alone saves growers $15 per acre each year, but because of cost and complexity, this technology has been out of reach for most farms smaller than 1,000 acres until now.

Wheelman delivers a complete, do-it-yourself autosteering system for under $3,500 with a simple design that any grower can order online and install in less than an hour on most equipment. Wheelman is powered by AgJunction’s proprietary Whirl software, making it easy to automatically and accurately steer a tractor and inform growers about their farming efficiency.
