FarmReign arms you with the latest technology, customized to meet your needs and our friends at Precision Planting are constantly coming up with new ways to increase growers’ efficiency. Bring your farm into the future with vDrive, DeltaForce, SpeedTube, vSet Select, vApplyHD and vDrive Insecticide: these are the cutting edge technologies of farming, and FarmReign is your gateway to affordably and intelligently integrating them into your operation.
vDrive is a custom planter on each row. Whatever you need and ask of that row happens. Period.
Season one, you have the capabilities to do your best planting, plus a meter & drive setup that has staying power for the seasons ahead.
With its row-by-row control, you’ll get precisely planted headlands, high-definition population reporting, and even the ability to plant male and female seed corn plants in the same pass.
Standard drive motors don’t allow individual rows (from the outside to the inside of the planter) to adjust around curves. With vDrive, each row adjusts independently, so you get accurate populations on curves and with your prescriptions.
DeltaForce replaces the springs or air bags on your planter with hydraulic cylinders. It automatically increases or reduces weight with military precision, on each row individually.
So when one row encounters conditions different than another (wheel tracks, old road beds, clay knobs, headlands, whatever), each will adjust independently.
Row by row, foot by foot, depth stays exactly where you want it. Row by row, foot by foot, even seed by seed, you produce an environment that fosters uniform germination, optimum growth and maximum yield. You can put DeltaForce on most Deere, CaseIH, Kinze and select White planter models.
SpeedTube increases planting speed and decreases equipment costs. A new seed delivery system by Precision Planting promises to allow growers to plant corn and soybeans much faster than is possible with seed tubes. Jason Stoller, Precision Planting Engineering Product Manager for the new SpeedTube, says, “Available time for optimum spring planting is both limited and critical, and larger planters are not the answer to growing farm sizes. But planting speed is limited by the constraints of the seed tube, because high speeds lead to poor spacing.” Stoller explains that SpeedTube solves these problems by controlling the seed all the way from the meter to the furrow. Feeder wheels at the top grab the seed from the disk and pull it into a flighted belt that deposits it in bottom of the trench. The SpeedTube belt spins at a rate that increases and decreases with planter speed and seeding rates, ensuring that the seed placement is optimal.
You aim to maximize yield by planting the hybrid that will do the best, on average, across the whole field. But yield environments often change in the same field, calling for different hybrids in different areas. You've had to make compromises, but not anymore.
With the radically new vSet Select, there are no compromises. You can plant two hybrids in the same row, switching back and forth as environments change, to plant the hybrid that will produce the most in each environment. That maximizes yield.
Any mapping software can make the two-hybrid prescription shape file that is used by vSet Select, or operators can manually switch from one hybrid to another.
Modern liquid control kits often come with a lot of caveats. Getting a system to apply the liquid you want, at the rate you want is confusing and for this reason many growers are either unhappy with their current setup or they have not moved to one.
vApplyHD solves these issues by being an all in one flow measurement and rate control tool. This results in easy to understand and accurate rate application. vApplyHD can be installed on each row as well as by section along with FlowSense to accommodate budget, allowing for prescription control and flow monitoring in both cases. High precision prescription control, compensation for implement speed, and real time monitoring allows growers granularity and instant feedback that makes sure they do not miss a beat in the field.
Normal insecticide meters are chain driven and accurate at a single speed. In the past, if you wanted to use an electric drive for your seed meter and apply granular insecticide, you would have had to leave the chains. Not anymore.
vDrive Insecticide is the electric motor-driven insecticide meter that provides accurate delivery across your entire speed range. Row by row control for your insecticide delivery is now within reach.
