Agricultural electronics manufacturer FarmscanAG has strengthened support for the Farmscan and AgGuide product ranges in Western Australia and South Australia with the appointment of Sales Manager Duncan Patten.

Patten is looking forward to meeting up with many farmers at the major field days in SA and WA this year.

FarmscanAG, through its extensive dealer network, provides farmers and contractors with a completely integrated range of electronic products to help steer, map, monitor and control spraying, spreading, planting and harvesting machinery.

The company’s AgGuideV4 software provides GPS guidance, auto steering, spray control and variable rate options and is capturing attention for its extensive capabilities specifically designed for Australian farmers. 

Other products in the company’s range include:

  • Multi-functional Jackal monitor
  • Single task controllers
  • Fully integrated, multi-product control and monitoring systems 
FarmscanAG is supplying leading manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand, including Gason, Simplicity, Horwood Bagshaw, Smale, John Shearer, Agrowplow, DuncanAg, Silvan, Hydraboom, Sonic, Marshall, Kuhn and Riteway.

Patten, who has been farming at Popanyinning in WA for the past 11 years, will be supporting the brand in WA and SA. He has used advanced farming technologies for many years and is looking forward to passing his knowledge on to others.

"FarmscanAG offers a stable company under a new ownership structure and with strong backup service to customers. The company’s smaller products, including meters and monitors, are still very popular with equipment manufacturers," says Patten.

"The AgGuide V4 software is proving very popular with cane, broadacre and raised bed farmers and a new FarmscanAG airseeder hose blockage monitor is being trialled this year in Victoria and WA. It is a wireless monitoring system, meaning there is no need for a cable back to the tractor cab, it runs on an Ipad and it offers monitoring of all hose outlets."

Patten anticipates a second wave of adoption of precision farming systems by growers and says demand already was strong as producers continually sought to gain improved efficiencies in their operations.
