click image to zoom In conjunction with the launch of the ExactEmerge planters and MaxEmerge 5 row units, John Deere introduces SeedStar Mobile to help producers better visualize, document, and access their planting data in real time. The new John Deere SeedStar Mobile solution uses an iPad to provide critical planting information producers need to better monitor and document their planter performance in the field and share it with their trusted ag professionals.

According to Mike Brandert, senior product manager at John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group, SeedStar Mobile provides real-time, row-by-row performance data on an iPad inside the tractor cab, in the office, or on the go. “With SeedStar Mobile, producers can instantly monitor planter performance and know with confidence that the planter is running at the highest level of precision and accuracy.”

Depending on the configuration of the planter, the system collects and monitors population, singulation, seed spacing, downforce, variety, and ground speed, on a row-by-row basis.  SeedStar Mobile captures this information and stores it on the iPad by working in conjunction with the GreenStar 3 2630 Display and SeedStar XP or SeedStar 3 HP on the planter. This information can be used to help optimize planter settings, diagnose potential problems, scout fields, and provide decision support in other areas of the farming operation. SeedStar Mobile also transfers the planting data to the Operations Center in MyJohnDeere while planting in the field or in the producer’s office using WiFi or a cellular connection.

 “Producers want to be able to visualize their productivity and effectiveness while planting through high-definition maps, not just see a numerical readout,” says Brandert. “Producers are also asking for more flexibility to access their data. By utilizing SeedStar Mobile on an iPad, it gives producers easy access to their planting data and provides the mobility they need to view the data at any time or place. Also, by sending the data to MyJohnDeere, it gives producers the ability to synchronize information between mobile devices and share data with trusted agronomic service providers. All of this enables the producer to improve planting performance, increase productivity, and maximize the yield potential of their crops.”

More information will be released in the future about SeedStar Mobile and its availability for the 2015 planting season.
