Advanced ditching creates more precise ditches

Keep water from forming a pond Keep water from forming a pond

Surface Water Pro™ Plus system for the GreenStar™ 2 (GS2) 2600 and GreenStar 3 (GS3) 2630 Displays take water management to the next level. When added to either a GS2 2600 or GS3 2630 Display, Surface Water Pro Plus will open the door for more advanced ditching functions enabling the creation of more precise ditches.


To attain this functionality, a Surface Water Pro Plus activation is required and a second StarFire™ 3000 or StarFire 6000 Receiver will need to be mounted on the implement which must be running at least SF2/SF3, but RTK is highly recommended. The receiver on the tractor may run SF2/SF3; however, RTK is recommended. To ensure the best vertical accuracy, users should run RTK on the implement receiver at a location within 2 km (1 mile) of the RTK base station.


Surface Water Pro Plus uses many components that many growers already own, including:

  • GS2 2600 Display
  • GS3 2630 Display
  • StarFire 3000 or StarFire 6000
  • AutoTrac™ assisted steering system
  • iGrade™ leveling system

NOTE:  See this link for further StarFire 6000 compatibility information.
