Residue management is key to unlocking your best yield potential. Properly sizing and evenly distributing residue and ensuring consistent stubble height for winter moisture retention contribute to even crop emergence. Faster residue breakdown helps mineralize nutrients more quickly and get them back into the soil. If residue is not sufficiently distributed, heavy harrows are a great solution to evenly distribute residue post-harvest and high performance disks can mix and bury residue for faster breakdown.
Placing seed and nutrients in the ideal location and distributing residue away from the furrow give you a strong start to the season. Air seeding technologies such as TruSet™ and the ProSeries™ Openers improve uniform emergence by controlling seed and fertilizer placement from the cab. Add RelativeFlow™ blockage and ActiveCal™ to the mix and trust your seed and nutrients are being accurately distributed.
Using data to manage even emergence is easier with our displays, a StarFire™ Receiver and John Deere Operations Center™. Whether it’s reducing compaction through reduced passes or tracking every step of the process, the more you know about your fields, the more you can improve uniform emergence.
