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.
Known as a proving ground and innovation showcase for consumer technology, the annual Consumer Electronics Show draws an international crowd seeking the latest in technological breakthroughs. John Deere established ag as a player at the the 2019 show and Joel Dawson, director, production and precision ag, explains the manufacturer's motivation and takeaways from the event.
