A race is on to launch the first ISOBUS controlled plough at Agritechnica, and it appears German company Lemken is leading by a nose. 

It said recently it is the first implement manufacturer to offer an ISOBUS plough control system that meets the guidelines of the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF). This controller allows operators to control their ploughs using a Lemken terminal or an ISOBUS compatible terminal on the tractor.

The Lemken Juwel reversible plough has an electro-hydraulic turnover system and hydraulic tilt adjustment using the TurnControl Pro ISOBUS plough control system which allows tilt, working depth and variable width via GPS control without the need for any extra devices.

The Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) is the umbrella organisation that has led ISOBUS development over the years. 

Products successfully tested by the group are awarded the ‘ISOBUS CERTIFIED’ label which confirms it meets the agreed industry standard.
