Development of GROUND BREAKER Precision Agriculture
In 2010, brothers Andrew, Nick and Scott Farquharson purchased Toowoomba Engineering, bringing their combined strengths across engineering and manufacturing, agronomy, farming, business and finance. Relationships with key players in the agricultural sector led the company to undertake an intense research and development program aimed at solving agronomic challenges faced by Australian farmers.
In 2014, the team made a major breakthrough for planting machinery that integrates precision technology with tyne planting row units. This is a world first! The success led to Toowoomba Engineering starting its own agriculture division branded GROUND BREAKER Precision Agriculture.
GROUND BREAKER Precision Agriculture, our latest machinery range, includes quality precision planters that allow farmers to maximise agronomic and economic gains by capitalising on genetic and technological improvements. The GROUND BREAKER Precision Planters are specifically designed for the conditions of Australian growing regions and apply the world’s leading precision technology.
The GROUND BREAKER Precision Planters bring Toowoomba Engineering's patented tyne technology together with the very latest in global precision technology and innovative engineering design into a superior planting system. This technology combines, for the first time, a tyne with precision planting technologies, providing farmers with control over applications in variable conditions such as soil type, moisture and nutrient levels.
In addition, the integration of precision technology with tractor software provides farmers with an advanced, 'whole of crop' cycle monitoring system. This technology is at the very forefront of the precision agriculture technology revolution and is creating massive opportunities for farmers to enjoy the benefits of precision farming practices in a wider range of cropping situations.
