We are here to help



Documentation of potatoes, onions, sugar beets and other specialty crops harvest data is now possible with Yield Documentation, Specialty Crop. Yield Documentation, Specialty Crop enables producers to document harvest information from weight-based, conveyor driven harvesting equipment.

View instantaneous yield information and totals on the go with Yield Documentation, Specialty Crop and the GreenStar 3 (GS3) 2630 Display. Yield Documentation, Specialty Crop is compatible with the GS3 2630 Display; the display provides on-screen mapping, in-cab visualization in color and, by color-coding each pass on a map, the display provides a real-time picture of the crop harvested.

Easy access to harvest yield information and percent trash enables producers to make future agronomic decisions based upon site specific data. Transfer the harvest documentation data into the John Deere Operations Center via USB or Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) for further analysis and generation of future variable-rate prescriptions.

Required components:
  • GS3 3 2630 Display
  • Yield Documentation, Specialty Crop (Application Controller 1120, Activation, Application Controller 1120 to CANbus harness)
  • StarFire™ 6000 or StarFire 3000 Receiver
  • Third-party yield controller sending RS232 data


NOTE: Yield Documentation, Specialty Crop harvest data is only compatible with the John Deere Operations Center.

This document lists all the compatible equipment approved with the software update 19-2 release, and is subject to change with newer software updates. To ensure complete and proper compatibility, the most current version of implement control unit software, Generation 4 Display software, or compatible farm management information software (FMIS) should be used. Non-current software versions will require an update before support can be provided. Unapproved software version configurations will not be supported.

The software update 19-2 release is only compatible with 4600 CommandCenter™ v2 processors. Software update 17-2 is the last release that was compatible with 4600 v1 processors.

Server serial numbers are as follows:

  • v1 = RWG prefix
  • v2 = PCG prefix

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.

To update the GreenStar Rate Controller and GreenStar Rate Controller Dry, utilize a Generation 4 Display USB port. John Deere dealers can also utilize Service ADVISOR™. GDC 2.11A was the last software version available through Software Manager. GDC 2.20A has been available since spring 2015 and contains diagnostic language updates. This software can only be obtained through Service ADVISOR.

John Deere Rate Controller 2000

The Generation 4 Displays and John Deere Rate Controller 2000 can support documentation and control up to five operations. ISO controllers such as SeedStar or TruSet can be used alongside a John Deere Rate Controller 2000 that is documenting additional operations.

AutoTrac™ Vision

AutoTrac Vision Guidance Camera 19-1 software 4.01L is only compatible with RowGuidance 3 Controller software AKK15783F and GreenStar 3 2630 17-1 software 3.34.1345 or newer and Generation 4 18-1 software 10.10.404-345 or newer. 

AutoTrac Universal 200, AutoTrac Universal 300, and AutoTrac Controller

AutoTrac Universal 200, AutoTrac Universal 300, and AutoTrac Controllers are for use with the 4640 Universal Display and 4240 Universal Display. Please see a John Deere dealer for exact model compatibility.

ISOBUS implements

Generation 4 Displays are compatible with one Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) certified ISOBUS implement; AEF-certified ISOBUS implements with Task Controller Section Control (TC-SC) functionality and AEF certification for TC-SC include sprayers, fertilizer spreaders, planters, seeders, manure applicators, etc. For third-party FMIS compatibility, reference the John Deere Operations Center.

A software update performed by an authorized ISOBUS implement dealer may be required to obtain compatible software. ISOBUS implements must be certified through the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) to be recognized by the Generation 4 CommandCenter display. Visit for more information; visit for an active list of compatible implements.

ISOBUS implements with VT4 are now supported by Generation 4 Displays. Generation 4 Displays still support older VT versions (example: VT2 and VT3). If an implement is not loading after updating to Generation 4 software update 2017-2 (or newer on 4600 CommandCenter v2 processors), it is recommended that the implement manufacturer be contacted to get a software version that is either VT3 or VT4.

Extended monitor

When using an extended monitor with equipment visualized in ISOBUS VT Viewer and applying VT run page modules to two run pages shown at the same time, the extended monitor’s VT modules will not update. To mitigate this, only view VT modules on one run page at a time.
