Having a farm map can be a very useful tool. The correct calculation of arable land (hectares) helps with cost effective fertiliser, seed and pesticide control inputs. Once camp size is determined, the camp’s optimal grazing capabilities can also be calculated and thereby resulting in the correct control of livestock numbers and prevention of overgrazing.
Using a DGPS in WGS84 format all features, structures and improvements within borderlines and above ground are surveyed and plotted. Features and structures include windmills, water-taps, pumps, troughs, corrals, gates etc. We make use of the National Geo-Spatial Information database supplied by the Rural Development & Land Reform to accurately reflect land gradient. Perennial water and dam-lines are similarly determined and reflected.
