Abstract: The term navigation usually brings to mind guiding craft over ranges of hundreds, or thousands, of miles with an accuracy of a few feet or miles. There are applications, however, which require a range of a few miles and an accuracy of inches. Farming is one of these applications. This paper identifies some specific operational techniques of navigating in a farm field. A new short-range precise navigational system is briefly described, observations based on field trials are made, and recommendations for improvements are given.
