  • A 6 Step Formula for Accurate Seed Placement
    most consistent seed size across all hybrids When setting meters be sure to verify performance using a test stand operated by a trusted adjuster using a sample of your seed If the planter is new to you consult with your machinery dealer seed supplier or meter adjuster for proper seed size recommendations 2 Check Meter Performance Once the seed is delivered and spring is in the air it s time to check meters Seed size adjustments might differ based on the style of meter New vacuum and air meters have flat plates no seed cells and less sensitivity to seed shapes Finger meters have seed cells and are more sensitive to seed shapes Both meters will plant accurately if they are calibrated correctly and in good mechanical condition For best results take a sample of seed to the adjuster to fill the meter To achieve spatial uniformity and proper singulation set the meter where the seed is planting at the highest accuracy Use the metering stand each year because seed size might vary 3 Consider Operating Speed Operating speed plays an important role when setting meters Meter performance is tied to revolutions per minute rpm which are related to speed and seed population Make sure to communicate planting speed with the meter adjuster Operating speed is dictated by the meter seed size and seed bed conditions The smoother the ride the easier it is to keep the planter from bouncing When a row unit begins to bounce meter performance and depth are affected Adequate down force is essential to get a true V trench The correct down force puts the seed in the bottom of the seed trench and closes the trench from the bottom up 4 Check Seed Tubes Remove seed tubes and make sure they aren t broken or worn Pay close attention to the bottom edges of the seed tube When this area is worn the edges of the plastic turn in causing the seed to hit and ricochet resulting in poor seed spacing Check the top of the tube for bent or cracked plastic that keeps the discharge chute of the seed meter from properly fitting into the seed tube If you replace the seed tube replace the guard at the same time The goal is to have little to no vibration in the seed tubes Common causes of vibration include the hydraulic motor worn out bushings in parallel arms worn bearings on the drive system fast operating speed and an unlevel planter 5 Determine Optimum Planting Depth Evaluate temperature soil conditions and moisture levels in the field and set the planter accordingly The standard depth range for corn to achieve favorable conditions is 1 5 to 2 though this might vary from field to field This depth range is considered standard because of the consistent moisture in the soil When planting occurs at the proper depth the microenvironment around the seed should show adequate moisture levels to start the germination process Closing wheels play a

  • 8 Recommendations to Avoid Uneven Corn Emergence
    to avoid uneven corn emergence The first step to following these recommendations is to determine the general pattern of emergence This will most likely vary from field to field and even within various parts of each field This will allow you to change the management for specific fields or parts depending on the most prevalent emergence patterns Should you protect late emerging plants during row cultivation If late emerging plants are within 1 ½ to 2 weeks of those emerging early avoid burying them during cultivation Protect plants emerging 3 weeks late if at least half of the plants in the stand are late emergers If less than ¼ of the stand is emerging 3 weeks late or later it probably won t pay to encourage their survival Yields will be about the same whether or not these delayed plants are buried Should you replant stands with uneven emergence If unevenness is mostly row to row replanting will probably not increase yield If the delay in emergence is less than 2 weeks replanting will increase yields less than 5 regardless of the pattern of unevenness If at least half of the plants in the stand emerge 3 weeks late or later then replanting may increase yields up to 10 To decide whether to replant in this situation estimate both the expected economic return of the increased yield compared to your replanting costs and the risk of emergence problems with the replanted stand Should you fill in a poor stand When replanting a poor stand 3 4 stand loss or greater you can either tear up the stand and replant the whole field or fill in the existing stand and create uneven emergence If you replant within 2 weeks of planting the original stand filling in the existing stand may be

  • John Deere is Revolutionizing Farming With Big Data
    and efficiency of the crops and ultimately higher production and revenue Although John Deere may not be collecting the level of data that Amazon and Wal Mart are they are very much collecting and processing large amounts of data to revolutionize the future of farming In order to cope with all of this data they decided to use the open source programing language R This allows John Deere to forecast demand crop yielding to determine land area and usage as well as help John Deere forecast the demand for spare parts of the combines This is all accomplished by collecting from multiple data sources and using R to export the data into different channels One of these channels is FarmSight which was launched in March 2011 FarmSight is built around three areas to help farmers increase productivity Machine optimiztion monitors the productivity of the machines and looks for opportunities to make the machines more efficient It uses proactive diagnostics on service issues such as filter changes and other maintenance items to help reduce downtime monitor its health and to improve machine efficiency and productivity Farming logistics data helps farmers control the growing farms and the ever expanding machine fleet The objective is to improve machine to machine communications and have the machines talk to each other This aims to allow farmers to control an entire fleet with one person Decision support helps the farmer make better decisions that prevent mistakes and increase efficiency The MyJohnDeere com platform is another channel a portal where users can manage their fleet see weather forecasts access any publication including those from third party applications and view financial information related to their operation Users have remote display access so a consultant is able to see what is going on from a distance The third channel
