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. Group training days are an excellent way of refreshing your memory on the N Sensor, improving your knowledge and use of the system or data handing. 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.....

N-Sensor© 2013

Its that time of year when we provide the Yara N-Sensor© service.  This ensures that the hardware is operating at its absolute optimum for the season.  The service will include a check of all mountings, check of the GPS receiver and accuracy, service of the X20 control unit, backup of your data, calibration of the sensors and lenses and finally but most importantly any further training required.  We believe the service is an essential part of sensor ownership and we hope you take advantage of this.  Please call 03301 190 060 to arrange a date but don't worry if you forget, our engineers will be in touch in the near future
