Reduce input costs through water management

Field irrigation Field irrigation
#

Energy costs are rising, water conservation practices including allocations are becoming more prevalent, and chemical application continues to be a significant input cost to a producer’s operations. John Deere Field Connect© system can provide producers the information needed to ensure that irrigation is used only when it is required, thereby reducing the tendency to overwater. Running an irrigation system only when needed will save on fuel costs and reduce the risk of washing chemical applications away from where the crop can use it. In areas with water restrictions, saving water today could make the difference between having a crop next season and not.


John Deere Field Connect© system enhances decision making John Deere Field Connect© system enhances decision making

A producer's yields are highly dependent on the inputs provided to the crop. Just as important is the time at which those inputs are provided. For corn, this means ensuring moisture is available during the pollination stage. Inadequate moisture during this key time can cause significantly lower yields. However, having too much moisture can be damaging as well.

 

The quality of a crop can also be affected if correct moisture levels are not maintained during fruit fill. In processing tomatoes, moisture levels are lowered in the final weeks of the season. This ensures that tomatoes are produced that have appropriate brix levels and high solids/sugars, to bring the highest possible price for the producer.

 

John Deere Field Connect provides detailed soil moisture levels throughout the growing season. When combined with optional environmental sensors, producers have a wealth of site-specific information at their fingertips. This ability to monitor moisture levels and key environmental conditions means decisions can be made around those key crop stages, allowing producers to make informed moisture management decisions.


With so many options available to producers, there is endless variation in the types of field configurations that they can use. John Deere Field Connect© system can be used in irrigated fields utilizing drip irrigation, center pivot systems, furrow irrigation, and a host of others, helping the producer to schedule the appropriate irrigation.

Tiled field situations provide another opportunity for utilizing the system. While moisture may be plentiful, a producer’s ability to control the movement of moisture away from the field can be critical. In these fields, John Deere Field Connect can be used to determine when to open and close tile gates to ensure moisture levels are optimized.

Moisture information can also be important in chemical applications as well, enabling producers to make the most of their input, by ensuring soil moisture content and environmental conditions are appropriate for the application. This is true whether or not the field has systems in place to control moisture levels.

StarFire Receivers

StarFire Receivers can be updated in the following ways:

  • Receiver USB port (available only for StarFire 6000 Receivers)
  • Generation 4 display USB port
  • Remote software updates application (in ISOBUS VT app)

Additionally, StarFire iTC Receivers are no longer supported with software update 2017-1 and newer software. StarFire 6000 Receivers require software version 3.80F or higher when used with AutoTrac Implement Guidance.

John Deere Operations Center

To use RDA on a Generation 4 CommandCenter Display with a GreenStar 3 2630 Display connected in the same machine, GreenStar 3 2630 software version 3.22.1095 (SU2014-1) or higher is required (for 4600 CommandCenter Display and 4640 Universal Display only).

GreenStar Rate Controller and GreenStar Rate Controller Dry

GreenStar Rate Controller Dry is supported with display software update 2017-2 and newer. The 4600 and 4200 CommandCenter Displays and 4640 and 4240 Universal Displays support documentation and section control of up to five GreenStar Rate Controller units.
