John Deere ExactEmerge: High
speed precision planting
Vacuum automation system guarantees high levels of seed-singling quality.
Active Downforce Control activates downforce pressure as needed, Curve
Compensation controls the row units for different seed frequencies when
cornering for identical seed spacing’s in all rows. The seed disc rotational
speed equals implement travel speed, ensuring a high level of seed spacing
and fast-response section control system enables precise sowing.
The ‘iTech AutoLearn’ system from John Deere supports operators, because
it detects similar headland sequences automatically. After it detects that
the last sequence was repeated three times, it suggests that the sequence
should be automated. The operator can accept the suggestion by pressing
a button to store it to the system and can also be edited at a later time.
Connected Crop Protection & Chemical
The Connected Crop Protection and Chemical Application Manager
are an intuitive system that helps users make decisions for a targeted,
well-timed, and precise application. This integrated system uses key
technologies that offer recommendations and operator assistance for
filling and spraying and automatically take buffer zones into account and
includes full documentation.
It also integrates the Chemical Application Manager, a joint development
by BASF and John Deere in conjunction with public-sector partners ISIP,
ZEPP, JKI and KTBL. The user controls the cycle, plans and edits precision
farming applications, documents the individual jobs and provides his
partners with access to the consultation feature. The system also includes the scanning of product codes for further
automation of the documentation. From problem identification to treatment recommendation, this application complies
with the law and provides prompt and time-efficient documentation.
John Deere Active Yield:
John Deere has extended the yieldmetering systemwith Active Yield calibration
system. Three weighing cells are fitted inside the grain tank and measure the
vertical forces as the filling level rises comparing these forces with the data
from the yield sensor, taking into account the moisture sensor reading. The
accuracy increases as the number of tank fills increase, so that the inaccuracy
settles around +/- 3%.
