What's New from John Deere Planting

It's Go Time at John Deere.

When the planting windows are short and the days are long, you have
to make every moment count to plant for success. John Deere introduces
several additional enhancements to boost your productive time from your
ExactEmerge or MaxEmerge 5e planters.

Mobile phone Mobile Row Unit Runoff
Now make the proper adjustments for each seed variety you plant before going to the field – all enabled through the PlanterPlus App. It’s as easy as using your cell phone or mobile device. Not only that, you can quickly troubleshoot and resolve any planter row unit performance issues.
screen capture SeedStar™ 4HP monitoring system
Have you ever wanted to view more than one planter bar chart at once? With SeedStar 4HP, you’ll now get multiple views and configurations in one simple overview page to fit your preferences. Just set it up to what works best for you rather than opening several applications.

screen capture Easy Fold
There’s now an easy way to fold and unfold your planter right from your monitor. Just enable from the display and operate the fold and hitch functions from one SCV switch, and our new Easy Fold feature automatically takes care of the rest.
Subaru Ex Engine Settings Manager
Now save your planter and tractor settings for each crop, condition and management practice including set rates, downforce, row cleaners, alarm preferences – and quickly recall them all later. You can use these presets to greatly save time configuring your planter for your conditions.

    All-New MaxEmerge™ 5e Row Unit

    All-New MaxEmerge™ 5e Row Unit

    Available for the first time is our new single electric motor MaxEmerge 5e row unit. You get the traditional planting system of a seed tube, but the ability to compensate for turns and maintaining in-row spacing – which helps improve population and spacing accuracy. Combine that with new individual row hydraulic downforce that independently adjusts on a per-row basis. Plus, all-new pneumatic closing wheels offer four times the downforce applied at the seed trench for greater seed-to-soil contact

      Maximize Your Yield Potential

      Knowing what it takes to get the most out of your planter to maximize yield potential is only half the battle. Having a planter that can actually perform the task is the other half. In our 2016 planting solutions video, we lay out just what it takes to get the job done.

        ExactEmerge:room to grow

        Room to Grow

        The first step was to raise the speed at which you could plant accurately. Our next step is to heighten the bar even further, offering new ExactEmerge models – 1725 CCS 16R30, DB60, DB80, and DB90 – and new ExactEmerge retrofit kits for select older models, including the 1770NT CCS MY11 or newer, 1790 MY11 or newer, and DB Series MY12 or newer. Plus, additional ExactEmerge crop plates bring this revolutionary technology to cotton, sugar beets, and popcorn growers, as well. And with even more new ExactEmerge features just released, we've grown the performance of our entire planter lineup so you can elevate your operation.

        You Can’t Argue With Results

        We ran the tests … and so did Purdue University. Here’s the plain truth: running at faster speeds with ExactEmerge has no negative effect on accuracy. So whether you’re bumping up from 8km/h to 11 km/h, or 9.6 km/h to 12.8 km/h, or higher, you get all the agronomic benefits to help maximize your full yield potential with the added bonus of increased planting speeds to take advantage of short windows.

                ExactEmerge: Case study of a true high-speed planter

                Not all high-speed planters are created equal. Case in point: Exact-Emerge doesn’t just deliver uniform emergence, accurate plant population and near-infinite spacing possibilities at an industry best ten miles per hour. It’s also completely engineered by John Deere. You won’t find anyone else’s delivery system on our row unit.
