Spreading solutions from Trimble include:


Prescription Maps
Using Farm Works Mapping™ software, you can create prescription maps based on soil samples or yield. Wirelessly transfer the map into your display for spreading with variable rate technology and place the right amount of granular application on the right spot.



In-Field Guidance
Increase your operational hours and reduce fatigue by using a hands-free Trimble steering systems to accurately guide your spreader.

You can even wirelessly share guidance lines and coverage maps between vehicles operating in the same field to reduce overlap and speed up jobs.


Application Control
Use Trimble's Field-IQ™ crop input control system to apply the correct amount of granular application to your field—and save money, increase yields, and keep records of what you've applied for post-harvest analysis.


  • Automatically control spinner speed for spreaders with the FmX® integrated display
  • Vary rates of fertilizer or lime manually or using prescriptions 
  • Avoid overlap by shutting off spreading when going over previously applied areas or point rows 
  • Connect directly to many manufacturers existing components

Add a Rawson variable rate drive to handle high-performance spreader boxes. These drives provide you with a very fast response when going from stand-still to material application.

You can also use a GreenSeeker® crop sensing system for an efficient way to manage crop inputs such as nitrogen for on-the-go application.
