Intelligent implement systems are needed to realise Precision Farming. The ISOBUS standard (ISO 11783) for agricultural machines provides standardized communication between a tractor and implements. Implementation of the standard, however, is not an easy task to perform. In the project AGRIX an ISOBUS compatible implementation has been developed for three implements: two combined drills and a sprayer. The paper describes the R&D process starting from specifications to prototypes and testing. It shows major modifications for implements were needed to implement ISOBUS. These are described. First test results are presented.
