The Trampler calculator takes your ground sprayer information:
  • Tire Width
  • Boom Width
  • Number of Headlands
And it calculates, based on a full square quarter:
  • The number of passes required per quarter
  • The potential loss in corners of the field due to turn radius
  • The area trampled by the wheels of your ground sprayer
To eventually conclude, based on intended yield and crop value:
  • The % of crop loss due to tramping
  • The $ value of the loss per acre
  • The number of acres lost per quarter
Additional to the loss, but not calculated here are the costs associated with:
  • Grade loss because acres were not covered in time
  • Time and ruts associated with going around pot holes and obstacles
  • Fuel cost
  • Machinery wear and tear
  • Labour cost
  • Soil compaction
  • Complications to other field operations thanks to sprayer ruts
  • Timing, air covers more acres
  • The cost of your ground sprayer – capital tie up and financial costs

Note: this calculator assumes 7-12″ row spacing for small grain drilled crops.
