Tomorrow's Planters Today!

Jeff Caldwell 02/11/2014 @ 5:31pm Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

The corn and soybean planter world's focus is on Louisville, Kentucky, this week with a major announcement coming from John Deere. Company officials are planning an announcement Wednesday, February 12, at the National Farm Machinery Show. Agriculture.com editors and producers will be at the event with live streaming video of the new product unveiling as well as covering follow-up events and conversations around the company's innovation.

Want to join in on the event? We'll have the live video stream here Wednesday morning, and you'll have the chance to join the conversation in our Machinery Talk forum.


Planting accuracy at 10 MPH

Kiss 5-mph planting good-bye! While you're at it, wave adios to your seed tubes and disks. With this new system, you no longer need them.

Deere's ExactEmerge

At the 2014 National Farm Machinery Show, John Deere unveiled its latest planter innovation: ExactEmerge. The planter allows you to push planting speed to 10 mph.


Meet the planter of the future

A planter is under pressure not only to deliver the seed to the soil as precisely as possible, but do so in an increasingly short window.

Multiple hybrids & speeds

A multiple-hybrid planter will allow you to change the seed hybrid automatically as the planter moves across the field.

Stroll tomorrow's planter

How will tomorrow's planter differ from the current iron? Industry experts point out some major changes on the way.
