New ExactEmerge Retrofit Kit Available for Late-Model John Deere Planters

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:27:51 CDT

New ExactEmerge Retrofit Kit Available for Late-Model John Deere Planters John Deere is making it easier for customers with late-model John Deere planters to increase planting speed while improving accuracy and performance with the ExactEmerge Retrofit Kit. This conversion kit provides corn and soybean producers with the latest performance-enhancing ExactEmerge technology that allows them to significantly increase productivity and crop yields through more timely and accurate seed placement.


“Producers realize that seed depth accuracy, spacing, and population are critically important. Crop residue management and timely planting also help to achieve maximum yield,” says Adam Sipes, product specialist with John Deere Seeding Group. “By retrofitting their late model John Deere planter with ExactEmerge components, customers can expect up to a 100 percent increase in planting speed, at least a 10 percent improvement in seed spacing accuracy, and improved performance on side hills, all without impacting depth control.”


The ExactEmerge Retrofit Kits are available for model year 2011 and newer 1770NT CCS and 1790 planters as well as model year 2012 and newer DB Series planters. ExactEmerge conversion components includes meter and hopper assemblies, cartridge assemblies, 56v electric drives and row unit controller assemblies, scrapers, cartridge guards, and mounting hardware. Other components include planter controller with SeedStar™ 3 HP, backbone harness and tractor power generation harnessing, vacuum automation, and curve compensation capability.


Kits require the use of tractor power generation and GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display for full operation. Depending on model of planter and tractor, additional components may be needed to complete the retrofit.


“The ExactEmerge technology is revolutionizing the planting industry,” Sipes adds. “The Retrofit Kit now gives more customers the ability to incorporate much of this technology onto their existing late-model planters and gain these improvements for themselves.”
