Action Required! Update SteerCommand, OnTrac3, GeoSteer and ParaDyme Firmware!

GPS time is based on number of weeks since the beginning of GPS time (January 06, 1980) and number of seconds since the beginning of each week. The maximum number of weeks capable in GPS time is 1024 so it must reset back to 0.

In April 2019, GPS time will experience a week rollover which means completion of week 1023. During this time, week number will roll back to 0 and start week count over. This firmware upgrade handles the week rollover to keep time on the correct year. Since ParaDyme and GeoSteer feature codes are time dependent, it is critical this update is performed, or feature codes may be lost. SteerCommands and OnTrac3’s also need to be on current firmware to function after April 1st.
You must re-register before going to the field this year!

With all the snow this winter and now rain, this combination can contribute to poor seed emergence in both corn and soybeans.

Did you know that a 2% loss on 100,000 bushels could reduce profits by $20,000?

By OPIsystems

You've spent a great deal of money on equipment, land, fertilizer and seed and have put hours of hard work into your field. So why would you not want to protect that investment when it comes time to reap the rewards?

It's estimated that only 10% of bins in North America have some form of grain management solution. The number globally is even less. Yet spoilage in bins can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
