Automatic steering systems allow farmers to save a significant amount of money by reducing the usage of resources. For instance, since autosteer systems eliminate overlaps during agricultural operations, farmers use less fuel and time to cover each section of the field. Plus, they allow agriculture professionals to use less fertilizers, pesticides, seeds, etc. For instance, farmers can save around 120 euro per hectare
by installing a FieldBee automatic steering system on their tractors. Similarly, economists from the University of Kentucky have found that the use of autosteer tractor guidance on farms increased net returns by up to $3.35 per acre.
