Marshall Multispread MDC wins Best Emerging Technology at Dowerin Field Day

The Marshall Multispread MDC system, co-developed by Roesner Pty Ltd, Proxima Consulting, Softwaring Solutions and Atamo has won the Best Emerging Technology Award at this year’s Dowerin Field Day. The Marshall Multispread MDC is a new product that utilises Internet of Things (IoT) technology to both calibrate and control the fertiliser application of the Marshall Multispread ┬áspreader in the field. The system consists of an electric actuator fitted to the spreader feed door, loadcells to weigh the hopper contents, electronics module and an app running on a mobile device. A Bluetooth LE network is used to send and received data from the spreader and the mobile app, reducing┬ásystem complexity and providing an easy to use Variable Rate (VR) technology.
