As Spring rolls around again farmers around the country are starting to wake the fields and getting them ready to supply the American market with wheat, soybean and corn. Just over two million farms dot America’s rural landscape. And about 99 percent of these farms are operated by families – individuals, family partnerships or family corporations.
Increasingly, farmers are relying on technology to help maximize the crop yield in the field. Whether it is a tractor, combine or other large farm equipment, farmers are relying on GPS devices from John Deere, AgLeader and Trimble to help with farm planning, crop scouting, tractor navigation and yield-mapping.
Today’s farmer can’t effectively assess local soil and climate conditions without global positioning capabilities. GPS devices help to evaluate sowing density, estimate crop yields and keep fertilization costs down. However, drivers find when the sun is close to the horizon at sunrise or sunset, there is glare that interferes with the ability to see the display.
In a cab that is covered by windows on all sides, it is hard to get away from glare. Anti-glare screen covers are available, but they turn dark in direct sunlight. Also, when the driver wears polarized sunglasses it makes it impossible to read the display.
But there is an easy and cost-effective solution, and NuShield is the company that can provide the answer. Only the NuShield DayVue anti-reflective screen protector film has the ability to eliminate the glare and allow display visibility in any condition. This is the same film that they make for military and avionics applications. The film filters out 99% of ultra violet rays and blocks reflected light, while letting transmitted light through thanks to the internal reflective surface it creates. Despite the high level of protection provided, the NuShield screen protector does interfere with the operation of the touch screen. And the film helps to provide screen visibility even if you wear polarized sunglasses.
Another benefit of NuShield DayVue screen protector is the scratch-resistance that it provides. Whether applying site-specific treatments to increase agricultural yield or applying soil amendments across a large area, the right tools are needed to succeed. NuShield films are available for most GPS devices on the market today and the company is happy to create a new size if it is not already listed on the NuShield website. The film comes pre-cut to specific models and it is very easy to apply and care for. NuShield films are also available for smartphones, tablets, laptops and other handheld devices. It’s almost planting season so plan ahead and avoid sunglare. Order your NuShield film today!
