Augmented GPS for precision farming?

Hello I’m Matteo from Italy.

I’m looking for an automatic steering system, for a soft wheat cultivation. What do you suggest the most? I’ve seen there are different level of accuracy provided, for example through EGNOS (http://egnos-portal.gsa.europa.eu/users/agriculture) or through Augmented GPS  es. Omnistar services.
Which one do you suggest for this kind of crop?
Thank you

Matteo

Re: Augmented GPS for precision farming?

Hello, I’m still in need of help!

I’ve looked a bit around, and found some alternatives on the internet. I mainly looked for the AXION steering system, as I own a Claas tractor:

I see anyway that there are different solutions: EGNOS, DGPS and RTK, with different costs and different performances. Which is the best for soft wheat?

PS do you think it is possible to install also other kinds of steering systems from other manufacturers?
