With growing costs of seed, fertilizers, and agrochemicals, the interest in site-specific application is rising tremendously. The GreenStar™ 3 2630 (GS3) Display takes variable-rate application to the next level with a large color display for viewing and creating maps. The GS3 2630 Display also works with approved (ISOBUS-) rate controllers to enhance variable-rate application.
Variable rate technology allows input application rates to be varied across fields to specifically manage field variability. The variable-rate application reduces input usage and environmental impacts while increasing efficiency and providing economic benefits. An example would be applying fertilizer to areas with high yield potential and reducing the amount of fertilizer in areas where nutrients are more likely to be washed out.
John Deere precision agricultural technology provides multiple opportunities to upgrade. Producers can confidently invest in technology today, knowing it can grow and change as their operations do. Producers can contact a John Deere dealer to learn more about available solutions.
Producers have the ability to upgrade signal accuracy with activations on the receiver only and no need to update AutoTrac™ assisted steering system display activation.
John Deere dealers offer an upgrade option for all AMS software applications from a previous to newer model.
Producers also have the ability to upgrade to the latest displays and receivers.
Maximizing investment cost
Many of the same solutions available with AutoTrac are compatible with the GreenStar system using AutoTrac Controller or AutoTrac Universal. Additional solutions available include John Deere Active Implement Guidance, John Deere Section Control, and the GreenStar Rate Controller.
This provides many options with one constant: stretching the producer’s money to bring more optimization to all equipment.
Producers will need to determine what:
