With expected availability next month from Trimble, EZ-Surface software is specifically designed for farm surface and sub-surface drainage applications.
EZ-Surface software works with the Autoslope feature of Trimble’s AgGPS FieldLevel II system, which runs on the FmX integrated display. The desktop software allows farmers and drainage contractors to analyze fields surveyed with FieldLevel II by viewing 3D field models, watershed maps, contours, surface flow paths, and waterflow directions. From this analysis, the user can determine the most appropriate and efficient locations for surface ditches or farm tile drainage lines. These lines can be drawn on the map taking into account the field topography and real world obstacles by viewing them over a Google Maps image.
Once the EZ-Surface software is synchronized with the FmX integrated display, farmers and drainage contractors can utilize the Autoslope feature to optimize the slopes and depths to create efficient farm tile drainage networks or surface ditches to help ensure optimal field drainage, which can lead to increased yields.
EZ-Surface combined with the new EZ-Sync solution allows farmers and drainage contractors to wirelessly deliver completed drainage designs to the FmX integrated display via Trimble’s Connected Farm solutions.
“EZ-Surface provides a visual way for farmers and drainage contractors to have much more control over their drainage systems, whether they are on the surface or sub-surface,” said Erik Arvesen, vice president and general manager for Trimble’s Agriculture Division. “When EZ-Surface is combined with our current solutions including the FmX integrated display and the EZ-Office software, drainage design and implementation becomes easier and more seamless than ever before, providing our customers with all the tools they need to achieve increased yields.”
