Yara N-Sensor© Training

During January and February 2013 we will be running a series of Yara N-Sensor training days aimed at new, existing and potential customers.

Delegates usually benefit from the interaction and discussion with others on the course.  The day will not only focus on the training of the sensor but will include agronomy advice, practical usage, hardware to simulate operation and access to Precision Decisions staff for any advice on application machine setup and calibration.  More information can be found here.....
