FW VRA & FM1000 FIQ problems

Search Discussion Boards

I have a big problem running VRA maps, developed in FW, for a FM1000 - FIQ - VR. It is all setup on a sprayer & calibrated correctly. It all works fine when running as a sprayer only with a set rate, using automatic rate controller. As close to 100% correct as you could get.
However, when I do a VR map (foliar fertilizer) in FM, export it as a shape file, import the shape file into FM1000, select "applied rate" as the column heading, Lead time is 5seconds, Prescription Scale factor: 1 ( 1 because all the input data & VR map was done in metric so no scaling is required) - everything seems to be imported OK.
Application Rate Switch set to 1- all should work. But what has happened is the actual application rate is way in excess of the designed rate & I can't work out what I've done wrong.
Flow calibration has not changed. Field has not suddenly got bigger - help & ideas appreciated.
