All around the John Deere Technology Summit
At the John Deere Technology Summit, June 28-29, the company hosted media representatives and securities analysts to showcase its latest technology releases. On Friday, at a farm north of Des Moines, Iowa, attendees toured four stations to see the new ideas up close. A few of the highlights follow.
Janae Tapper, Deere Integrated Solutions Group, explained the company’s new mobile weather system. The monitor allows farmers to see field specific weather information from a sprayer cab, including wind speed and direction, Delta T, temperature and relative humidity.
Deere’s Mobile Weather system uses a third-party sensor on the sprayer to capture real-time weather without the operator having to climb out of the cab to check conditions.
The company touted MyJohnDeere.com, which will help farmers manage their equipment information, production data and farm operations from a single website. The portal will be available from a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
Tyler Hogrefe demonstrated the new implement detection technology, which automatically populates implement- and task-specific settings from a controller on the implement to the GreenStar™ 3 2630 display in the cab.
In the farm’s machine shed, visitors watched a demonstration in which they could view the operator’s display screen on this 4830 sprayer.
