A New View

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. With Precision Planting’s 20/20 SeedSense with FieldView, one picture is worth a thousand numbers.

The FieldView system links the 20/20 SeedSense display to an iPad tablet to give farmers an instant view of their field, singulation, down force, spacing, population, hybrids and more. This system gives you the ability to see trends and patterns in your fields as they happen.

“In the past, users have seen lots of numbers with the 20/20 SeedSense,” says John Larkin, Precision Planting. “They could take this information and export it out with the USB key and run it through our Automap software and generate maps so they could look at their population map, their singulation map or their down force map. All of the attributes they were monitoring on SeedSense they could generate maps from. What we’re adding is an iPad application that automatically maps that information live in the cab. It’s the same information, but what we do is connect the SeedSense monitor through a module that Apple has approved and feed that information into the FieldView app running on the iPad.”

And because all field and planting data is stored on your iPad tablet, farmers have a mobile tool to take to the office or for scouting.

Available in February 2012, the suggested price of the FieldView system is $970.
