There are 3 primary global systems in use today
- GPS (United States)
- GLONASS (Russia)
- Galileo (European Union)
Originally these systems were developed for military uses and for navigation on the world’s oceans or in the air. With the growth in this technology, it is now commonplace for satellite navigation to be used in road building and construction applications. Agriculture has been using and developing satellite technology for more efficient use of pesticides and fertilizers with great results in output per acre while also reducing their chemical costs. Turflux has now put the pieces in place for golf courses to take advantage of satellite technology, too.
