Rise in GPS thefts prompts security warning to farmers

Farmers have been told to boost security to protect GPS kits this harvest season, as the cost of claims for this type of theft almost doubled in 2020.

Criminal gangs could take advantage of the busy harvest period to steal expensive GPS kits from tractors and combines, NFU Mutual has warned.

In recent years, GPS systems have been one of the most frequently-stolen items from farms because of their high value and portability.
