Field training in France.

 February 2013

There is some great new things on the horizon from John Deere, I have just completed field training in France for all AMS and Sprayer products, there was a great selection of Machinery to use and train on, from the Self Propelled 5430i, to the 724 trailed John Deere sprayer, and everything else in-between.

One of my highlights for the trip was the new John Deere 962i trailed sprayer, this really is a fantastic sprayer, coming from an operators background, the ease of use and ergonomics of this sprayer really shine though, with so many great attributes such as, a very low centre of gravity, up to a 6200l tank, Boom Track, swath control, auto dilute amoung others, all to make the operators life easier and more efficient.

Right though the whole range of sprayers the build quality is exceptional, with the best boom ride and stability in its class.

One the AMS (Agricultural Management Solutions) side there is constant development with JD Link Telematics and Guidance systems. Auto Track Controller is now available; this system means we can fit a fully integrated Autotrack system to other brands of equipment, with all accuracy levels, as an alternative we can offer the John Deere ATU 200 system which has been hugely successful as a bolt on steering kit, offering Auto Tracking on nearly any machine, with very fast fitting and being able to move it from machine to machine makes the ATU 200 great value for money.


Also another great Development is the John Deere Active Implement Guidance, Active Implement Guidance works with a wide range of steerable implements equipped with either side-shift, drawbar axle or disc steering. StarFire receivers are mounted on both the tractor and implement and it is controlled via your GreenStar display. Using either RTK or SF2 signals it follows straight, curved and circular tracks.

All of this development comes under the umbrella of John Deere Farm Sight, John Deere FarmSight integrates wireless communications and advanced precision farming technology to connect equipment, owners, operators and dealers to provide new levels of productivity and sustainable farm management.

It supports your business in three important areas:

Machine optimisation

Logistics optimisation

Ag Decision Support
