Satellite-based auto-guidance represents one currently available technology that can provide significant benefits for the crop production industry in diverse growing environments. Once producers use auto-guidance equipment, they seldom want to return to conventional practices. Newer, improved versions of auto-guidance products provide better operation functionality which prevents the frustration and fears that early adopters experienced. The question "Should auto-guidance be used?" has now been replaced with the question "What auto-guidance option is best for a given operation?" Available variety of costs, guidance error levels, and other technical specifications suggests that virtually every cropping operation may be optimized if the appropriate type of satellite-based auto-guidance is implemented.
