InCommand 1200: A window into your planter, part II
In the second installment of this blog, I will share specific examples where InCommand identified issues that could cost yield. It’s all pretty common knowledge that proper seed spacing and uniform emergence equates to more bushels in the bin but how do you know you’re planting properly?
Enter the InCommand™ 1200. It has the resolution to clearly show everything you need to know. Historical pass-to-pass information with directional arrows, split screen so you can delve into more specific information, have planting maps in hand when you leave the cab with AgFiniti® Mobile and much more.
Avoid costly mistakes
Fun Fact: Using row-by-row planting data from the InCommand™ 1200, an amazing 80% of our first-year participants were able to uncover problems they never knew they had.
From a Missouri grower using InCommand and SureDrive:
“I had the population set at 36,000 and noticed the left side of the planter was under-planting and the right side of the planter was planting as expected. I started troubleshooting. It was not a vacuum issue and the encoders on the hydraulic drives checked out fine. Digging deeper, I figured out I forgot to update the gear ratio setting on the second hydraulic drive. Agronomic issues like this typically would have easily been overlooked in the past.”
From a grower making his first few rounds with the new InCommand and SureDrive:
“I took the screen shot below showing poor singulation on rows 12 and 16. An investigation into those two rows found that I had installed the seed delivery belt backward. They must have been this way for years and I had never noticed before I had the visibility that InCommand provides.”
Keep Your Operation On Par From Afar
From a grower using InCommand and AgFiniti:
“I am part of my family’s corn and soybean operation, but I don’t farm full-time. I have a job away from the farm, but it drives me crazy not knowing what’s going on in the field during the busy seasons. Thanks to AgFiniti, I can see Dad’s InCommand display in real time, and know how things are going even when I’m 100 miles away from the farm.”
