Ag Leader’s SureSpeed planting system now available

Myriad factors influence planting speed. When conditions are right to move faster through the field, farmers don’t want to sacrifice accurate speed placement. Whether you’re traveling at 3 or 12 mph, Ag Leader’s SureSpeed planting system is designed to accurately place seed at all speeds in that range. 

“Growing farm sizes and tight planting windows are driving the need for farmers to get more acres planted when conditions are fit to plant. Using a traditional meter and gravity drop tube at high speeds sacrifices seed spacing, which is a critical factor in maximizing yields,” says Bob Heston, Ag Leader product manager. “That’s why it is imperative SureSpeed places seed just as accurately at 12 mph as it does at 3 mph, allowing farmers to plant at any speed without compromising singulation or spacing accuracy.”

Hassle-free Planting

Attention to details like the unique meter orientation on the row unit enables seed to move seamlessly between the meter and delivery system. The meter was also designed to handle a variety of seed shapes and sizes without having to adjust the singulator.

When coupled with SureForce, Ag Leader’s hydraulic downforce solution, the system offers the highest available force capacity enabling consistent ground contact and a smooth row unit ride as speed increases in varying conditions.

SureSpeed is controlled through Ag Leader’s InCommand 1200 display, which allows you to view individual row detail with side-by-side planting performance maps. The display also lets farmers stay connected by allowing them to instantly share live maps, auto swath coverage, guidance lines, and other displays. See live or historical field maps and summaries on your phone or tablet anytime, anywhere.
