We know you’re always on the lookout to add efficiency to your operation, exploring new ways to reduce operating costs or pump up your yields a little more … Below you’ll find the latest research and studies from universities, extension services, and John Deere, all designed to help give you a greater advantage.
ExactEmerge™ scores high marks during in-field testing
Research at a major land grant university shows John Deere ExactEmerge outperforms the standard for spacing and emergence, even at planting speeds of 10mph
A recent study by Purdue University identified the top factors of corn yield: even emergence, soil moisture, soil temperature, and seed-to-soil contact. Of these, even emergence had the largest impact on ultimate yield.
Want to maximize corn yield potential? Follow these four keys
Make no mistake, planting is the most critical aspect of the production cycle. So it's important to lay a strong foundation to reach the full potential of your operation. But there are four aspects that stand out the most
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 5mph to 7mph, or 6mph to 8mph, 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.
John Deere product specialists explain new techniques to get the right population in the right fields at the right time, with more uniform spacing and improved emergence, even in shorter planting windows. (Taped at a customer LEAD event in Moline, IL -- December 2015).
Automated section control pays for itself in 2 years
This 2011 study from Auburn University shows that using automatic section control during planting delivers input savings from 1% to 12% on each pass, with an average seed savings of 4.3%. Investing in section control technology will pay for itself within 2 years.
Make every drop count. Automatic boom-section control saves an
Adding automatic boom-section control delivers savings between 2% and 12%, according to this Auburn University study. Reduce your overlap on point rows, headlands, small, irregular-shaped fields or waterways
Harvest is an excellent time to measure the effectiveness of the steps you took this year. John Deere product specialists explain new techniques to improve harvest efficiency and help turn data into insights. (Taped at a customer LEAD event in Moline, IL -- December 2015).
Sixty percent of yield can be attributed to fertilizer and nutrients; John Deere product specialists explain new techniques to improve performance that lead to higher yields, while potentially lowering input costs. (Taped at a LEAD customer event in Moline, IL -- December 2015).
Is one banding system – side band or mid-row band – better than the other? Some of our competitors would have you think yes … mid-row. But the truth is there is no agronomic advantage of one of these placement practices over the other. And that’s not our word. That comes straight from the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI).
A Penn State University finds that shredlage "does not give the cow any more physically effective fiber (peNDF) or provide any advantage over conventionally chopped silage in this aspect of the diet.” (16-05).
