The John Deere Field Connect™ System:
On the surface everything looks good, but sometimes it’s what you can’t see that can cost you. Moisture levels vary from field to field and within each field. You already know this, but knowing when yield-robbing variances occur isn’t as easy to predict. Now it is with John Deere Field Connect™ Soil Moisture Monitoring. This straightforward solution helps you pinpoint the sweet spot, where crops thrive, resources are protected, and profits soar.
Intuitive and farmer-friendly, the John Deere Field Connect™ system comes with the full support of 21st Century Equipment. Instead of digging for answers, John Deere Field Connect™ uses field-installed probes to monitor moisture levels at various depths. It then sends the information to a web-based interface where you can see the data on your computer or mobile device.
At the office or in the field, you and your ISG consultant can instantly see if your soil’s moisture levels are balanced and decide what measures need to be taken, like making the call to apply water to encourage uptake of nutrients and plant growth or less to reduce leaching. Without delay or guesswork you can advise your crew to make the adjustments needed to protect your yields and reduce costs.
