Outback Guidance by AgJunction Launches Hands-Free Farming Campaign at The Farm Progress Show 2017 in Decatur, Illinois

The hands-free farming campaign is focused on building a community to share their experiences, suggestions, and best practices around cost-effective precision farming systems that work for farms of all sizes.

HIAWATHA, KS, Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Outback Guidance, a leader in automated steering and advanced precision farming solutions, and a part of AgJunction, Inc. (TSX: AJX), is launching its hands-free farming campaign at the Farm Progress show 2017, which is being held August 29th-31st, 2017 in Decatur, Illinois.


The hands-free farming campaign is focused on building a community to share their experiences, suggestions, and best practices around cost-effective precision farming systems that work for farms of all sizes.

Outback Guidance believes precision farming systems should be available to every farmer, regardless of size. In fact, small farmers benefit more than anyone when they use precision farming systems to manage their crops. An example of this was highlighted in a USDA study, which shows farmers can save $15 an acre each year using a GPS autosteering solution.

"With the launch of our hands-free farming campaign, we're committed to making precision farming systems accessible to every farmer who can benefit from it," said Jeff Morris, AgJunction's chief marketing officer. "Farmers can join our campaign today by going to www.handsfreefarm.com and registering. In doing so, they'll receive a limited time offer for an easy-to-use and affordable autosteering solution. And, if they farm 400 acres or more, they'll realize payback in their first season."

The 13 MP autofocus camera uEye XC is especially easy to operate and delivers high-resolution images and videos in the blink of an eye. Unlike typical webcams, it has been specifically designed for use in industrial applications and delivers sharp image data even in changing light conditions. Setting up and operating only requires a cable connection. The webcam-like camera is characterised by its particularly elegant and lightweight magnesium housing: with dimensions of only 32 x 61 x 19 mm, it is compact, sturdy despite its light weight and absolutely suitable for industrial use - benefiting, for example, kiosk systems, applications in industrial production or agriculture. With the uEye XC Starter Set, IDS offers a full-package deal for $500. (launch promotion, valid until 30 November 2022) that allows customers to evaluate and use the full range of functions of the new camera. The set includes not only the camera, tripod adapter and cable, but also a macro lens. Thanks to this lens, the camera is also suitable for demanding applications at close range. It easily shortens the minimum possible object distance and opens up additional application possibilities.
