Agriculture

Agriculture and farming has changed a lot over the years. Technology is used more than ever before improve safety and increase efficiency. Reliable communication is a key part of the farming process.

Currently farmers and growers need to communicate quickly with their employees in the office and the field. They need to get their products to market quickly. A delay could cost thousands of pounds. With over 200,000 farming establishments across the UK the demand for instant communication is high. We at DTS have worked with organisations of all sizes across the agricultural industry with the main objective of providing a cost effective, robust, reliable and efficient solution that can deal with the day-to-day environments on the farm and out in the field. As workers in the agricultural industry are often alone and working in potentially dangerous environments, their communication solution also needs to alert others to emergencies and support lone-workers, wherever they are on the farm.

The result is key. When effective team communication happens, it drives not only better production but also more efficient work practices. When this happens, there is also better safety on the farms. Agricultural environments are tough, hard places to work. Without proper technology for communication, problems can arise – and they often do, even with the best tools in place.

The agricultural industry has relied on two way radios for years which, at the push of a button, can provide answers and solutions, communication and connection among team members.

The range of two-way radios we offer to this industry is vast! We cater for all budgets and requirements and offer an extensive range of accessories. The radios we have on offer give a rugged and durable solution to cope with the harshest conditions, offering full site coverage. We also offer radios that are dust resistant and waterproof which are extremely popular within this sector to extend equipment life. 

Whether it is a small or large area you need to cover we have the best system for each situation. We have successfully installed vehicle radios in tractors, combine harvesters and  other large farm machinery to make sure that you are fully covered on the ground. We know how important this is due to the long working hours within the industry throughout the seasons.
