Elevation and Drainage

Elevation and Drainage

Precision Agronomics Australia are equipped with RTK Base Stations that allow us to collect elevation data at 2-5 cm accuracy. This information is collected on 20m swaths to ensure high quality and consistency. Data captured from tractor based RTK Guidance Systems is also an excellent method to collect highly accurate elevation data.

An elevation map can be used to identify low lying areas of a field that are susceptible to frost and waterlogging risk. Elevation data can also be used as an extra data layer in crop yield analysis.

PAA has expertise in using software to develop drainage models that can be used by Earth moving equipment to alter water flows in paddocks, leading to improved yield outcomes.
