Control down force with military precision. Win the battle for higher yields.
When you control down force, you avoid shallow-planted seeds and you avoid root compaction. Simply put, you pave the way for higher yields.
Nothing controls down force better than DeltaForce™ from Precision Planting. In every foot on every pass, in each individual row, it monitors row unit weight and ground contact, then instantly and automatically adjusts to maintain the depth you set. In a four year study, managing down force improved yield on average 8.7 bushels.* It’s a simple solution to improve yields and win.
DeltaForce is available for John Deere, Case IH, Kinze, and most any other planter models. DeltaForce works with 20/20 SeedSense® replacing the springs or air bags on your planter. It includes hydraulic cylinders, plus a weigh pin that sends data to SeedSense which, in turn, controls the cylinders – and your down force. Add FieldView® to see high-resolution maps of down force, applied down force and ground contact on your iPad®.
