To help growers monitor, adjust and learn from the performance of their planter or sprayer while it moves through the field, John Deere has introduced the new Connect Mobile app.
‘‘By using Connect Mobile, operators will know they’re doing the best possible job with the investment they’ve made in their John Deere equipment,’’ John Deere production and precision agriculture marketing manager John Mishler said.
Growers can monitor job quality in real time and better understand what’s going on with their sprayer or planter in nozzle-by-nozzle and row-by-row detail.
‘‘It’s managing the job at a micro level to make macro improvements,’’ he said.
By visualising job performance, operators can quickly and more easily identify potential problems. Multiple map layers across production steps provide additional insights for growers to consider that can improve productivity and reduce operating costs.
Operators can seamlessly move the app from one John Deere machine to the next, and from one production step to another.
‘‘The result is a better understanding of the job being performed,,’’ Mr Mishler said.
‘‘Data is saved on the iPad so it goes where you go. At any time, or in any location as the data is saved, you can quickly review past work.’’
John Deere Connect Mobile is available as a free download from the Apple app store. Subscriptions in 2017 are free. For customers who previously used SeedStar Mobile, the data stored on their iPad will migrate to Connect Mobile after the new app is installed.
