Variable Rate Application
Map Based Variable Rate Application
Map based variable rate applications use a prescription map to change the rate of the input applied as the implement is driven across the field.
For instance, the grower may want to increase the nitrogen that is applied in certain areas of the field and decrease the rate in other areas. These areas can be determined by the previously collected and then put in a prescription map so the rate changes are made automatically by the display in the cab.

On the Go Variable Rate
On the go Variable Rate
Much like map based base variable rate application, on the go variable rate systems adjust the rate of products in different areas of the field. Unlike map based variable rate applications these systems use sensors to adjust the rate as you go down the field, without needing to prepare a prescription beforehand.
