AutoSwath benefits

Automatically turns planter rows on/off based on field maps and already-seeded areas. If row shutoffs are not present on the planter, we offer low maintenance, easy-to-install automatic row shutoffs to equip your planter.

  • Eliminates double planting at end rows, point rows and around terraces.
  • Makes following the row at harvest easier when navigating end rows.
  • Improves planting productivity by eliminating the need to slow down to accurately raise or lower the planter at end rows.
  • Makes night planting easier by eliminating the need to watch for end rows.
  • Reduces lodging at point rows, resulting in increased yield.
