Increasingly, larger farms are relying on technology to help maximize the crop yield in the field. Whether its a tractor, combine or other large farm equipment you will find GPS devices such as the John Deere 2600, the Edge from AgLeader and the AgGPS Field Manager from Trimble. These are used for farm planning, crop scouting, tractor navigation and yield-mapping.
By evaluating your sowing density and by properly estimating your fertilizer needs, you can maximize your crop yields while simultaneously keeping fertilization costs down. You really can’t effectively assess local soil and climate conditions without global positioning capabilities. However, you won’t be able to effectively perform your job if you are not able to read your display. When the sun is close to the horizon at sunrise or sunset, you find that glare interferes with your ability to see the display.
Don’t Let the Sun Blind You
In a cab that is covered by windows on all sides, it is hard to get away from glare. Anti-glare screen covers are available, but they turn dark in direct sunlight. Also, wearing polarized sunglasses makes it hard to read the display.
You need a 21st century solution and NuShield is the company that can provide the answer. Only the NuShield DayVue anti-reflective (AR) screen protector film has the ability to eliminate the glare and allow you to read the display in any condition. This is the same film that they make for military and avionics applications. The film filters out 99% of ultra violet rays and blocks reflected light, while letting transmitted light through thanks to the internal reflective surface it creates. Despite the high level of protection provided, NuShield screen protectors do not interfere with the operation of your LCD touch screen. And the film still works if you wear polarized sunglasses.
Protect Your Investment
Another benefit of NuShield DayVue is the scratch-resistance that it provides. It effectively protects against scratches while improving visibility through brightness enhancement and high contrast. Whether you are applying site-specific treatments to increase your agricultural yield or if you are applying soil amendments across a large area, you will need the right tools to succeed. Your GPS is one of your greatest allies and you should repay it by protecting it with the NuShield DayVue screen protector.
NuShield films are available for most GPS devices and the company will be happy to create a new size for your specific model if it is not already listed on the NuShield website. Its almost planting season so plan ahead and avoid sunglare.
