Monitoring & Measuring

Every pass across the field needs not just data, but in-depth knowledge of the field and equipment. 20|20 provides a foot by foot agronomic view of your field to help make better decisions in the moment.

Digging seeds is a time consuming yet important task at planting time, but only allows you see a fraction of the seeds planted in a field. Getting your eyes on the furrow, where the seeds are placed, will allow you to understand if those seeds are in an environment to thrive. SmartFirmer measures temperature, moisture and residue in the seed furrow displayed on the 20|20 monitor as well as the capability to control seeding rate, fertilizer rate and hybrid based on organic matter.

We all want to know the truth of equipment performance. When it comes to liquid, rates, plumbing, pumps, and pulsation can all affect application and most times a problem is unknown. FlowSense tells you liquid application rate on each row.  Displayed on the 20|20 in the cab, you will know what rate each row is receiving, and be able to fix issues if they are occurring.

Accurate yield information is one of the most valuable decision tools in any farming operation. Knowing how the different hybrids and varieties yielded in different fields helps us make decisions about what we plant next year. Having better yield data leads to better decisions.

Liquid Control & Delivery

Many growers today understand traditional liquid application hardware lacks even distribution across the field. This variation creates hidden hunger or over application impacting farm profitability. vApply provides flow measurement and rate control in one device, making simple, accurate liquid system.

Putting starter where the plant needs it, when the plant needs it, takes FurrowJet. FurrowJet is a planter mounted device that places three bands of phosphorus starter fertilizer near the furrow; one in furrow, and two about 3/4" away from the seed on either side.  These three bands are placed right where the seedling roots and crown roots will grow, taking up the P and thriving.

Broadcasting nitrogen on the soil surface doesn't put it where the plant will use it. Conceal is a simple nutrient placement device that places fertilizer in a band, incorporated into the soil, where the plant will be able to get those nutrients during the critical ear set stage.

Meters

Meter performance is a key contributor to yield. If your meters perform at less than 99% singulation, you are losing out on yield. vSet uses a high vacuum setting and an aggressive singulator to properly singulate seeds across a variety of sizes and shapes. There is no need to change the disk, the singulator settings, or the vacuum level. By the time the disk passes the singulator, one seed is ready to drop down the tube. Every time. Just pour in the seed and plant.

Planting your crop is the most important thing you will do each year. You’ve picked the right hybrids, the right population, and the right fertility plan. We understand that when conditions are fit, your planter has to be rolling. Add vDrive to your planter and experience a planter drive system that just works, without risking the performance of 138 moving parts. Save time, money, and frustration and keep your planter rolling with vDrive.

Most growers believe that their fields have some variation in them, however, manage their fields the same from road ditch to fence. The many areas contained within those acres have widely varying levels of profit t potential. Profitability is compromised when the entire field is treated the same rather than treating each variation in a way that maximizes its return.

The eSet meter is a retrofit system that goes inside of a John Deere vacuum meter and uses a flat disk without cells that are sensitive to seed size and shape, paired with a floating singulator that provides adjustment free accuracy. You simply set your vacuum, fill the planter with seed, and go.

RowFlow

RowFlow pairs with the 20/20 SeedSense & makes it easy to save seed and change rate within the field. RowFlow is the industry standard in clutch and hydraulic drive control. Plug in the RowFlow system to the motors and clutches and to the 20/20 SeedSense system, and you are ready to go.
With vSet Select, there are no compromises. You can plant two hybrids in the same row, switching back and forth as environments change, to plant the hybrid that will produce the most in each environment and maximize your yield potential.

Downforce Control

Checking to make sure the planter is at the right down force setting is one of the most important things to do during planting. Seeds planted at a consistent depth help achieve uniform emergence which sets the stage for the rest of season. DeltaForce gets downforce right with automatic adjustments on every row based on field variability.

Planting depth is another key element pf planting that gets overlooked simply because there is very little information to tell the operator how consistently you are seeding. SeederForce uses load cells on the row units of the drill to measure how much weight is on the gauge wheel.  By maintaining a consistent amount of weight on the gauge wheel, you can be confident that you are placing seeds at seeding depth because in order to have weight on the gauge wheel, the disk opener must first be creating a seed trench at the depth that it is set.

Getting down force right while planting is a big factor in how a crop yields at harvest. Knowing the correct pressure to set in downforce airbags is challenging but incorrect downforce costs yield in late emerged plants or restricted root growth. Too much down force and sidewall compaction prevents strong root system development. Likewise, not enough down force leads to inconsistent depth and uneven emergence.

Knowing that your planter is putting down the correct population is vital. Dusty conditions and high populations make accurate population monitoring difficult. Measuring at the middle of the tube is fine for population, but how much does spacing change between the middle and bottom of the seed tube. WaveVision eliminates these challenged. High Frequency radio waves measure the density of anything passing through the seed tube taking a three-dimensional view. Measuring from the bottom of the tube gives the best view of actual spacing in the field. Better data leads to better decisions.

Emergence

When residue is not removed from the path of the row unit, expect yield loss. Pinning residue in-furrow can wick moisture away from the seed delaying emergence. In-furrow, incorporated, and surface residue increases disease pressure. CleanSweep makes row cleaner adjustments easy to prevent late emergence, seedling diseases and nutrients tied up by residue.
