Collecting information that will be used to continually develop and improve
products to serve our customers.

Our Tech Trial Mission

Real Technology

We’re using real technology we’ve developed to help farmers plan, plant, apply and harvest more efficiently and accurately.

Real Farms

We’re traveling all across the country to grower farms with different growing environments and different farming practices to follow their journey.

Real Insights

We’re seeking actionable insights and best practices that you can put into play on your farm to get the best result from the technology year after year.

SureForce

SureForce

Hydraulic Downforce with Uplift

  • Is my planter equipped to plant in different soil types?
  • Can my downforce setting affect emergence?

SureSpeed

SureSpeed

High Speed Planting System

  • If I plant fast will I sacrifice accuracy?
  • Will my plant emergence look just as good at 10 mph as it does at 5 mph?
  • Will my singulation be affected by planting speed?

SureDrive

SureDrive

Electric Drives

  • Am I losing yield potential in my contours?
  • How fast can I plant at?
  • How much savings can I see with point row turnoff?

SureForce on agronomy

SureForce

SureForce instantly responds to changing conditions by adjusting pressure to give each row the exact pressure needed to plant at ideal depth. Our testing looks at the necessary downforce to maintain depth in varying conditions and soil types, through heavy residue, and in compacted areas.

Our trials are focused on helping you answer:
• Is my planter equipped to plant in different soil types?
• Can my downforce setting affect emergence?

SureSpeed on Agronomy

SureSpeed

SureSpeed is our high-speed planting system that focuses on getting seed in the ground during prime planting conditions to ensure uniform emergence, plant health and maintaining soil structure.

Our trials are focused on helping you answer:
• If I plant fast will I sacrifice accuracy?
• Will my plant emergence look just as good at 10 mph as it does at 5 mph?
• Will my singulation be affected by planting speed?

SureDrive

SureDrive electric drives mount right up to the planter and meter you know and love, gaining you consistent meter drive for variable rate, turn compensation and point row shutoff.

Our trials are focused on helping you answer:
• Am I losing yield potential in my contours?
• How fast can I plant at?
• How much savings can I see with point row turnoff?
