Laser leveling is a process of smoothing the land surface (± 2 cm) from its average elevation using laser-equipped tractor-pulled scrapers. This practice uses large horsepower tractors and soil movers that are equipped with global positioning systems (GPS) and/or laser-guided instrumentation so that the soil can be moved either by cutting or filling to create the desired slope/level. This technique is well known for achieving higher levels of accuracy in land leveling and offers great potential for water savings and higher crop yields.
