At the John Deere seeding equipment preview event in Valley City, ND, Product Manager Emily Klemmer highlights the John Deere 60-foot 1895 Air Seeder, recently released in Feb. 2018. Constructed to be 40% wider than the previous largest model, the drill includes 33-inch mainframe tires, designed to work independently across hilly terrain for even pressure across the soil. The release also includes TruSet compatible technology, which allows for incab depth adjustment on seed placement, and RelativeFlow, which alerts users of potential tower blockages in real-time.
Sparland, Ill. strip-tiller Jay Riddell discusses his multifaceted approach to maximizing yield potential through variable-rate. Centered on tissue testing and management zones for seed and fertilizer application, Riddell's goal is to equalize costs per bushel across all 1,500 of his acres.
