Precision Planting SmartDepth

SmartDepth™ from Precision Planting allows you to quickly and easily make depth adjustments, from inside the cab, as conditions change. This saves you time and gives you the confidence that each row is set right where you need it to be.

Too Shallow, Too Deep, Just Right

Many farmers believe that getting planting depth deep enough so each seed is in moisture is the proper way to set depth. While getting into moisture is important, there are tradeoffs to planting too deep or too shallow. If planted too shallow, seeds potentially are not in moisture and will not germinate consistently.

What about when there is plenty of moisture in the soil, even at shallower depths? In this scenario, planting deeper than necessary will cost you emergence speed and consistency due to less heat being available at the deeper depths, which drives emergence.

The Same Depth Setting Doesn’t Mean the Same Depth

Even when set to the same depth setting, the actual planting depth across a planter can vary by up to ½” because of manufacturing variance and wear. You can check this variability on your planter by doing a block check in your shop. SmartDepth removes row-to-row variability through a calibration process to make sure the same depth setting truly means the same depth.

Support has never been an issue. I was able to increase efficiency on the farm without adding more operators.

Evan (with Precision Agri Services, Inc.) has been great to work with. Everything he told me he followed through on in a very timely response. Their product knowledge and support have been great.

Slight hills were drawing it down at C3 at around 10.0 mph going down to as low as 9.0. After the tune with AgroEcoPower we were in D1 at 12.2 mph and no draw down whatsoever.

Evan (with Precision Agri Services, Inc.) did a great job presenting me with options on a steering system I was not satisfied with. He helped me use Ag Leader technology I Already had to Convert it to steer my 8520 John Deere. Tech support is top-notch with him.

We had our 8320 ECU rewritten and are so happy we did! Tanner took the tractor from 260hp up to 305hp and it is a world of difference. We are pulling our digger faster at less rpm and can't wait to see what it will do on our vertical till!

Just put it (Ag Leader InCommand 1200 with ISO serial bridge) to the test. Everything works really well. Each boom sections on and off, in and out of multiple different paint zones. Pretty sweet deal!
