Population Control, Seed Spacing & Placement Products

  • vDrive

    vDrive™ for vSet™ delivers even more precise population with greater simplicity.

    vDrive

    Powered by 20/20 SeedSense®, vDrive brings single-row control to your vSet meters. It enables incredibly precise population control on curves, when your ground speed changes and with all variable rate prescriptions – even highly granular FieldScripts®.

    With the vDrive system, you don't need clutches, hydraulic motors and chains or cables. It uses a 12V electric motor that controls each row individually and eliminates the maintenance that chains and cables require.

    From the simple accurate row shut-offs, you'll get precisely planted headlands. From the new population algorithm, you'll get high-definition population reporting. From the row-by-row target population control, you'll get the ability to plant male and female seed corn plants in the same pass – without modifying seed disks.

    Master planting population control. Pair vSet with vDrive, and make the most of your seeds in every foot of your field.

Downforce Control

  • AirForce

    AirForce® means automatic control.

    Excessive down force applied to the row unit during planting can cause root zone compaction. That compaction cuts yields by:

    • Reducing germination rates and lowering plant count
    • Increasing plant stress reducing ear girth and length
    • Stressing plants at pollination during dry years with hot summers

    Too little down force means shallow plants.

    The 20/20 SeedSense® system teams with 20/20 AirForce to automatically measure and manage down force to make sure you run as light as possible, while maintaining the ground contact that assures uniform seeding depth.

Monitoring & Sensing Products

  • 20/20 SeedSense

    Quit planting with a blindfold on.

    The planter monitor in your cab today delivers sanitized population data. It tells you if you are within your target planting population with about a ten percent margin of error. So if you have 5% skips and 5% doubles, your monitor is happy because you are planting at 100% population. That’s not good enough.

    SeedSense

    The 20/20 SeedSense® Monitor System gives you better information and more information. Information that lets you actively manage your planter – and make changes that make you money.

    Four reasons why you need this monitor:

    1. Find hidden mechanical problems and correct them at planting
    2. Perfect planter performance by adjusting meters, vacuum pressure, transmissions and speed
    3. Improve productivity by maximizing planter speed without compromising performance
    4. Measure and adjust down force to eliminate costly root compaction and slotting

    Five things your current monitor can't tell you:

    1. Is your down force set correctly?
    2. Are your meters running at peak accuracy?
    3. Can you go faster and not hurt planting accuracy?
    4. Is there a seed tape or debris in your meter that is causing one row to skip?
    5. Do you have enough row unit weight to achieve your desired depth?
