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.
