Title: METHOD FOR PLANNING THE WORKING OF AN AGRICULTURAL FIELD
Abstract:
The present application relates to a method for planning working of an at least quadrilateral area (10) of an agricultural field by means of a steerable or manoeuvrable agricultural implement, wherein the area (10) has edge portions (12, 14, 16, 18) between its corners (11, 13, 15, 17) and in this case a first edge portion (12) and a second edge portion (14) opposite the first edge portion (12), and wherein the second edge portion (14) extends at an angle to the first edge portion (12). In this case, a plurality of first working paths (20) extending alongside one another and a plurality of second working paths (22) extending alongside one another are determined, a rut (24), which extends at least partially along the first working paths (20) and the second working paths (22) and along which the agricultural implement is intended to be moved over the area (10), is determined, and a plurality of turn-in points (26) along the rut (24), at which the implement is turned from a direction along one of the first working paths (20) into a direction along one of the second working paths (22), are determined, such that the rut (24) extends less along the first working paths (20) and more along the second working paths (22) with increasing distance (30) from the first edge portion (12).
