RTK+ Network


RTK+ uses cellular data to track your equipment every action and every move. Using data from cellular towers, RTK+'s strength is the ability to not deviate during line of sight issues like hills, valleys, trees, and buildings. Unlike radio-based guidance systems, RTK+ is not limited to distance from radio towers. If you lose cell phone signal, no worries! RTK+ will automatically switch to a satellite feed when you lose cell phone signal until cellular signal returns. RTK+ connects to your current cellular plan, or we can help you connect to the best plan for your farming area. Click Here to learn what CASE-IH, or New Holland says about RTK+!

RTK delivers precision within an inch! RTK uses a system of radio towers to precisely monitor and guide your equipment within an inch! Unlike RTK+, RTK does not use cellular data, which makes it a perfect match for anyone farming in areas with little to no cell phone coverage. Above is the map of Apple Farm Service's RTK coverage area. You can count on strong RTK signal if you live or farm within any of these green circles.


Our RTK Coverage Map (Using Radio Base stations)

Apple Farm Service is proud to announce their partnership with Farmers Edge! 

Farmers Edge is a data aggregator to help you make better ROI decisions on your crops. Every new farming machine creates data. Your tractor, planter, sprayer, and combine create too much data for one farmer to understand. Farmers Edge combines all this information and gives you easy to understand results. Daily satellite images of your fields will alert you of any changes you might want to inspect. On-Farm weather stations alert you of proper planting/spraying/harvest situations. Soil testing creates detailed prescription maps for fertilizer inputs. 

Don't know which system is best for you? Discuss your situation with Apple Farm Service, or set up a demo today! Let our certified RTK and RTK+ technicians research your location, and demo both systems.
