Regardless of operation type, producers have endured rising input costs each year. Inputs such as seed, fertilizers, pesticides, and fuel seem to increase every year.
For these reasons and others, many producers strive to minimize the number of passes taken through the field and attempt to make one pass count.
John Deere Section Control and the GreenStar™ Rate Controller allows operators to combine what used to be multiple operations into one, allowing such tasks to be completed simultaneously during a single field pass. Producers can utilize automatic rate and section control during four simultaneous operations.
Multiple GreenStar Rate Controllers are a very versatile hardware solution. The controllers are functional when used in tandem with or independent of each other.
For example, install multiple controllers on a planter to control fertilizer and seed simultaneously, and then remove one or two of those controllers to control single products on individual implements, such as sprayers or strip-till applicators.
Other benefits of John Deere Section Control and multiple GreenStar Rate Controllers are as follows:
- Reduced input costs
- Enhanced controlled traffic abilities
- Increased operational efficiency
- Increased operator efficiency
- Increased machine efficiency
