As planting season approaches, farmers are gearing up to maximize efficiency and accuracy in the field. Case IH offers a range of Precision Planting products designed to enhance the way farmers monitor, simplify, and optimize planting their crops. Five essential Precision Planting products—20|20® display, vSet®, DeltaForce®, SpeedTube®, and WaveVision®—stand out when it comes to precise planting, each contributing to a more efficient and productive planting season.
20|20 Display: See Beyond the Surface
Go beyond traditional monitoring with the 20|20 display system which provides real-time insights into field conditions and equipment performance. 20|20 ensures that operators have the knowledge and control needed for optimal results throughout the crop cycle. Data is key when it comes to making the best decisions in the field. High-definition agronomic technology allows operators to visualize performance and field conditions, seed by seed, plant by plant, and drop by drop.
vSet: Effortless Meter Accuracy
Say goodbye to the constant adjustments needed with traditional seed meters. The vSet seed meter ensures accurate seed placement without the hassle of continual fine-tuning. Its high-vacuum setting and aggressive singulator handles a variety of seed sizes and shapes, providing over 99% accuracy in corn and soybeans without adjustments. vSet is the foundation for building the perfect planter, allowing seamless integration with other Precision Planting aftermarket solutions.
DeltaForce: Precision Downforce Control
Running a single downforce setting across an entire field can lead to yield loss due to variability. DeltaForce, an automated row-by-row downforce control system, measures and adjusts downforce in real-time. Each row individually responds to its unique needs, eliminating trade-offs or compromises for adjacent rows. DeltaForce works seamlessly with the 20|20 display, providing the control needed to optimize planting depth and maximize yields.
SpeedTube: Plant Faster, Plant Smarter
As planting speeds increase, maintaining accurate seed spacing becomes a challenge. SpeedTube, a seed delivery system, allows you to double your planting speed without sacrificing performance. The flighted belt technology eliminates bounce and roll in the trench, ensuring that every seed arrives safely at the bottom, evenly spaced. SpeedTube is a crucial component of a high-speed planting system that preserves accuracy even at increased speeds.
WaveVision: Precision Seed Counting
Traditional seed sensors often count dust along with seeds, leading to inaccurate population counts. WaveVision overcomes this issue by counting only seeds, not dust. Using high-frequency radio waves, WaveVision measures seed mass instead of shape, providing accurate population data. With no optical sensors to cause errors, WaveVision ensures you can confidently monitor and control your planting population.
Spring into Precision Planting
As operators gear up for planting season, integrating Precision Planting products from Case IH into their equipment lineup will help optimize a farm’s planting operation and make every pass through the field count.
