DITCH

AMW Ditching Control Solution

AMW DITCH is a turn key RTK GNSS based surface drainage
control solution that fully controls all surface water management
equipment like Ditchers and Scrapers.

Survey Grade

External Survey grade RTK capable GNSS Receiver that wirelessly communicates with the tablet

Automated Control

Analyze for depth, flow and discharge points and auto control a scraper or ditcher to cut and fill to design

RTK GNSS Based

Compatible with all GPS brands, calibrated with CHC i70 Surveyor RTK Base

A Turn-key Surface Drainage Control Solution

Control standing water on any terrain to increase yields and reduce nitrogen loss. Control moving water to minimize phosphorus and potassium loss and keep applied fertilizer where it is needed. Eliminate the erosion of any terrain and valuable soils utilizing customized designs, for improved soil quality and crop yields.

DITCH works with in-depth pre-planned designs as well as in-field depth and grade designs.

Based on years of experience in water management by managing surface drainage.

DITCH also provides for topographical map creation by driving the terrain, and or layering a geo-referenced yield map, Google map, satellite image, aerial photo or other user defined maps to identify water ponding areas and drainage strategies, for planning and soil placement. Now, on our new Android computer platform with survey grade RTK, operation has been simplified and updated and includes all hardware needed for a quick install.
