    The ExactRate liquid fertilizer system is a factory-installed solution that provides you with accurate nutrient placement during planting. Previously, you would have to deal with the inconvenience of cumbersome aftermarket systems for a hydraulically driven variable-rate solution. With ExactRate, John Deere delivers a complete planting solution for liquid fertilizer users. You can choose between in-furrow or offset delivery methods. This system delivers:

     

    • Up to 20 percent more accurate nutrient placement in a turn compared to a non-turn compensating systems
    • 1 to 12 percent (4.3 percent on average) reduction in inputs through row-by-row section control
    • Ability to run up to 16.1 km/h (10 mph)
    • Closed-loop speed and rate change compensation
    • Full integration into the 4600 CommandCenter™ and 4640 Universal Display
    ExactRate nozzle body ExactRate nozzle body

    The ExactRate liquid fertilizer system is designed to take full advantage of the capabilities of ExactEmerge™ and MaxEmerge™ 5e planters. This factory-installed liquid fertilizer system delivers the same value as your electric drive planter including working at speeds faster than the traditional 8.05 km/h (5 mph), turn compensation, and row-by-row section control, all while accurately compensating for varying rates and speed changes. Additional features include row-by-row flow detection, as-applied documentation, and variable-rate capabilities, providing operators full integration into the 4600 CommandCenter or 4640 Universal Display. 

     

    Fertilizer flows from the tank to the pump, through a strainer and boom isolation valve, through a central flowmeter, and out to each nozzle body and row-unit for accurate delivery. The system is closed loop, meaning the pump and nozzle body duty cycle both adjust based on feedback received from the pressure sensor and central flowmeter. This design helps maintain an accurate application rate.

     

    *NOTE: ExactRate™ is not recommended for products that require agitation to maintain suspension.

    Pump
    Pump assembly at rear of planter Pump assembly at rear of planter

    Instead of a tire-contact drive, a hydraulically driven centrifugal pump eliminates chain and sprocket adjustments to provide more speed flexibility over the entire rate range. This pump allows for a wide range of rate capabilities as well as strong durability. The wet seal design helps protect the pump if it is accidentally run dry for a short time. 

    Strainer

    A strainer helps collect suspended particles and prevent them from causing blockages in the distribution system and nozzle bodies.

    Boom isolation valve

    The valve prevents the tank from draining out if there is a leak in the distribution system. If the pump is on, the valve opens to allow flow. When the pump is off, the valve closes.

    Central flowmeter and pump pressure sensor

    The central flowmeter and pump pressure sensor provide the rate control system feedback on flow and pressure to ensure an accurate application rate across the entire planter width. The flowmeter also supplies the as-applied rate data.

    Distribution system and nozzle body
    Distribution system and nozzle bodies routed on the wing of a 12-row 1775NT Distribution system and nozzle bodies routed on the wing of a 12-row 1775NT

    The 2.5-cm (1-in.) stainless-steel distribution lines not only reduce corrosion, they also provide a clean integrated look.  The distribution system is pressure tested at the factory to reduce the risk of leaks.

     

    John Deere has leveraged ExactApply™ technology and capabilities from the sprayers to enable row-by-row section control and turn compensation that matches the high-performance planters. With ExactRate, there are no orifice changes for rate or speed adjustments, saving you time and effort while limiting exposure to product. Pulse-width modulation technology varies duty cycle (opening and closing of the valve) in the nozzle bodies in conjunction with flow and pressure measured from central flowmeter and pressure sensor controlling the system pump. The ExactRate liquid fertilizer system uses one nozzle body for two rows, limiting the number of parts and complexity on each machine. While you’re in the cab, you’ll be able to keep an eye on each row with flow detection integrated into the Gen 4 display. The system will warn you if it detects a variance in an individual row’s flow. A pressure sensor integrated into the nozzle body will detect a flow reduction or overapplication on the row.

    Keypad at rear of planter Keypad at rear of planter

    Just like on the sprayers, the keypad at the rear of the machine lets you conveniently perform a nozzle flow check to ensure product is coming out of each row before going to the field.

    ExactRate app on Gen 4

    Easily adjust target rate and speed without leaving your seat. With turn compensation, inner and outer rates are automatically adjusted to maintain consistent application across the full width of the planter. This ultimately reduces the risk of seed burn by over application (turn compensations requires a global positioning system [GPS] receiver). Another helpful feature is row-by-row section control for reduced overlap on headlands and waterways. Gen 4 Documentation creates as-applied maps showing what product was applied where, providing accurate record-keeping.

  • It is very challenging to get the crop planted during the optimum planting window or as close to the optimum planting day as possible. Rate-of-yield loss accelerates greatly after the optimum window has passed. This is especially true in the northern U.S. and Canada. ExactEmerge maintains accurate speed placement at higher speeds; growers can avoid missing that peak planting time, thereby helping to get the highest crop yields.

    With the BrushBelt trench delivery system, the spacing in the trench does not change from even to uneven terrain. This can be a problem with a traditional seed tubes. Seed bounce and ricochet may occur as slopes increases, ultimately decreasing seed spacing performance.

     

    The design of the BrushBelt system provides the best solution for the lowest release of seed to the bottom of the trench. The use of a brush provides the meter with an infinite amount of placement opportunities for each seed. This is what gives producers the confidence that every seed will have the desired spacing that a seed tube cannot provide.

    Maintenance-free BrushBelt system Maintenance-free BrushBelt system
    #

    When the brush comes around the pulley, it expands and allows the seed to be transferred from the bowl to the brush very easily. The brush then carries the seed down toward the trench, ensuring that there is no movement as it moves down the length of the cartridge.

     

    Once the brush reaches the lower pulley, the BrushBelt system expands again to loosen the grip on the seed, and the centrifugal force releases the seed. Another advantage with the BrushBelt system and cartridge at all speeds up to 10 mph is the ability to match the seed rearward trajectory to the forward ground speed of the planter. This provides a dead drop of the seed with no bounce and no roll at the bottom of the trench.

    #

    John Deere’s ExactEmerge cartridge is self-cleaning. When an operator uses seed treatments or is forced to plant in less than ideal soil conditions, the design of the trench delivery system sheds buildup from the BrushBelt. A brush conditioner is located at the bottom of the cartridge to remove remaining residue and prevent the bristles from sticking together.

    Brush proximity helps clean sensor Brush proximity helps clean sensor
    #

    Another advantage over a seed tube is that the BrushBelt system also acts as a cleaner to the seed sensor compared to a seed tube.

    BrushBelt removed from trench delivery system BrushBelt removed from trench delivery system
    #

    The BrushBelt system requires no maintenance and has a wear life designed to match the wear life of the other wear components. Since operations vary, as do soils and field content, it is recommended to replace the BrushBelt after noticeable wear or decreased performance.

    Changing the belt is easy. One latch removes the meter over the trench delivery system. Grab the cartridge by the grip and pull toward the body, releasing it from the electric motor fitting. Lift the trench delivery system up and remove the sensor wiring harness to completely pull the cartridge out of the row-unit.

    There are two plastic covers that snap off to uncover the belt; remove the covers and then twist the circular spring-tensioner dial with the yellow arrow on it to release the tension on the springs. Once tension has been removed, pull the belt out. It is also recommended to change the stainless-steel wear strip at this time as well, which also slides right out of place without the use of tools.

    NOTE: It is recommended to use a talc/graphite mixture with ExactEmerge. Best results have been 80 percent talc and 20 percent graphite. For certain regions and territories, talc and talc/graphite mixes are restricted from use; in this case, use a wax-based fluency agent.

    Two 56-V brushless electric motors provide ExactEmerge the upper hand over any other row-unit on the market. One motor controls the high-performance meter and the other powers the BrushBelt™ delivery system. Both feature a closed loop system ensuring they operate at the correct rpm.

     

    The motor is controlled at a rate of 200 times per second and a decision is made every 5 milliseconds. The controller also keeps each motor operating at independent speeds of each other. The meter speed is determined by a combination of ground speed and desired population rate while the BrushBelt speed stays consistent with the forward ground speed of the planter in order to place the seed at the bottom of trench.

    #

    Industry-proven 56-V brushless motors give confidence to the operator that the row-unit will perform in any condition. The advantage of 56-V over 24-V electric motors is a lower amperage draw.

     

    Brushless motors are maintenance free and give the producer the most optimal solution to achieve the highest performance and the lowest amount of work to the planter.

    The electric drive version of RowCommand row-unit has the potential to get 2 to 8 percent reduction in seed usage from being able to control the meter and BrushBelt rather than a clutch disengaging and some seeds still falling down the seed tube.

    On all ExactEmerge row-units, each cartridge will be equipped with sensors. As the seeds are being delivered through the BrushBelt™ delivery system controls, they pass the reflective seed sensor. The delivery system slides every seed past the seed sensor to read and send the signal to the controller. The seed sensor and design is able to provide sensor performance at higher seeds per second with no population adjustment as needed with seed tube sensors. This seed sensor data is actual row-unit performance data. In comparison, seed tube sensors add 10 percent population in soybean planting to adjust for the seeds missed due to placement within the seed tube. The BrushBelt system holds each seed in place until released in the trench, allowing the seed sensor a more accurate read.

    The first day of planting season can be as productive as the last with mobile row-unit runoff. The mobile row-unit runoff activation on the planter main controller (PMC) allows operators to make adjustments to maximize row-unit performance from a mobile device at the rear of the planter for both preseason and in-season use - all enabled through the PlanterPlus™ app.

     

    Mobile row-unit runoff allows growers to perform test-stand functions from a mobile device connected to the planter.

     

    The row runoff test provides complete diagnostic checks both preseason and in season. With the row-unit runoff test, the operator can make adjustments from the mobile device, including vacuum pressure, to determine the optimum meter and vacuum settings. This app functionality will help avoid making trips to the cab while validating meter performance.

     

    During preseason planter inspections and set up, utilize the meter performance test to validate meter accuracy, similar to a test stand without leaving the farm. Test all systems on the planter, not just the meter, providing confidence that all planter systems are ready to plant. Reports are generated from the test providing information the operator can save and send for future reference.

     

    Before heading to the field, the operator will benefit from knowing the best row-unit and vacuum settings for each variety selected to plant that spring.

  • Individual Row Hydraulic Downforce (IRHD)
    IRHD system IRHD system

    IRHD has been specifically designed to meet the needs of producers that are looking to adjust to the toughest field conditions and provide maximum yield potential from field to field, season after season. IRHD works as a closed-loop downforce system that reacts quickly on an individual row basis to changing soil conditions supporting increased ground contact, which can lead to improved seed depth consistency. When setting planter downforce margin, the system will apply the needed downforce by row to maintain ground contact. From the factory, the margin will be set at 45.4 kg (100 lb), changes may be required based on varying field conditions.

    The system allows operators to maintain gauge wheel ground contact leading to desired seed depth placement. IRHD can adjust five times per second and make adjustments of 45.4 kg (100 lb) in less than a second. The system has a total range of applied downforce from 22.7 kg (50 lb) to 204.1 kg (450 lb) and utilizes the power beyond circuit on the tractor. IRHD is 58 percent faster than the active pneumatic downforce solution. Fast reaction and increased ground contact can lead to improved emergence. With uniform emergence, some studies have shown a yield impact from 5 percent to 9 percent.

    IRHD is controlled through the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ Display or 4640 Universal Display with SeedStar™ 3 HP or SeedStar 4HP. As shown below, operators can view ground contact or applied downforce using the toggle button.

    Hydraulically driven compressor
    Hydraulic motor Hydraulic motor
    Pneumatic valve Pneumatic valve

    The hydraulically driven air compressor can deliver up to eight times the air flow, allowing for more and faster downforce changes to be made. This more robust design features a 37.8-L (10-gal.) storage tank across all models with active downforce.

    At approximately 15.1 L/min (4 gpm), hydraulic demands are low and ties into the machine’s lift and Central Commodity System (CCS™) hydraulic circuit so it does not require any additional selective control valves (SCVs). The SeedStar XP, SeedStar 3 HP, and SeedStar 4 HP monitoring systems work with the compressor and valve assembly to regulate air to downforce springs, enabling the active control.

     

    Base equipment on: All MaxEmerge 5e and ExactEmerge equipped planter models.

    Active downforce control is integrated into SeedStar XP, SeedStar 3 HP, and SeedStar 4 HP monitoring systems.

     

    Margin is the amount of weight riding on the depth gauge wheels that ensures desired firming of the seedbed as set by the operator.

     

    Once a target margin has been defined, enter the value into the display and let active downforce do the rest. The system will actively adjust the air pressure in the air bags to maintain a constant margin across the planter. The changes in air pressure will change the amount of downforce placed on the row-unit, compensating and reacting for varying conditions through the field whether it is different tillage practices, soil types, or moisture.

    Downforce and margin example Downforce and margin example
    • A - Margin – amount of additional downforce applied to a row-unit above and beyond what is required for penetration to achieve planting depth. This additional weight will ride on the depth gauge wheels. 
      • 54.4 kg (120 lb) + 36.3 kg (80 lb) = 90.7 kg (200 lb) – 68 kg (150 lb) = 22.7 kg (50 lb) of margin
    • B - Weight of row-unit - 54.4 kg (120 lb)
    • C - Downforce – force that is applied to the row-unit by the air bag circuit - 36.3 kg (80 lb)
    • D - Resistance from soil - 68 kg (150 lb)
    Active pneumatic downforce
    Active downforce compressor assembly Active downforce compressor assembly
    Hydraulic motor Hydraulic motor

    A hydraulically driven compressor works with the SeedStar XP, SeedStar 3 HP, and SeedStar 4 systems to automate downforce control. Just set the row-unit target margin value and the active pneumatic downforce system works automatically. The system will make sure the planter maintains this value, achieving precise soil penetration, and consistent planting depth, without sidewall soil compaction. From the factory, the system is set at 45.4 kg (100 lb) target downforce margin but may be modified for varying field conditions. This frees the operator from constantly making manual downforce adjustments as conditions change.

     

    This system offers a split-rank control feature for 1795 and DB Split-Row Planters. On split-row planters, active downforce will control the front and rear rows independently. This compensates for differing downforce requirements between the ranks that can be caused by things like different tillage or insecticide attachments and will help maintain an accurate planting depth and consistent margin across all the rows.

     

    Active pneumatic downforce is available as factory installed or as an attachment for field conversion.

    On 1725 16-row, 1725 CCS TR, 1745, 1775NT, 1775NT CCS, 1795, DR, and DB Series Planter models, the air compressor will be mounted on the outer hitch or frame assembly. Since the air compressor assembly is mounted on the outer hitch (as noted in the picture above) or frame, adjustments for row-unit downforce and related system pressures will be made electronically with the GreenStar display.

     

    When adjusting the amount of row-unit downforce using the GreenStar display, the operator will select the amount of downforce (kg [lb]) to be applied across the planter. Depending on the soil conditions at hand, the operator might need to adjust the relative amount of row-unit downforce being applied during the planting operation. The integrated pneumatic downforce controls within the GreenStar display will only allow for set-point operation and not automatic control as the planter is operating in different soil conditions. The pneumatic downforce system does not have the capability to automatically adjust downforce.

    Standard pneumatic downforce system

    Pneumatic downforce provides convenient, simple adjustment of downforce for the whole planter from one location. The amount of downforce applied is infinitely adjustable from 0 to 181.4 kg (0 to 400 lb). Pneumatic downforce provides more consistent downforce throughout the range of row-unit travel than mechanical spring downforce systems.

    Features include:

    • 9.5-mm (3/8-in.) air delivery line instead of the 6.4-mm (1/4-in.) line used on model year 2010 and older planters.
    • Air compressor assembly increased duty cycle. With this compressor, it provides a 47 percent increase in maximum air flow delivery compared to the prior air compressor.
    • Pneumatic air bags with 9.5-mm (3/8-in.) air line inlets that have greater durability.

    Each row-unit has a single rubber air bag located between the parallel arms. The air bags are hooked in parallel so that air can be added or released from all rows at once from one location.

     

    The individual pneumatic downforce air bag assemblies, air compressor units, and 9.5-mm (3/8-in.) delivery lines are also available as an attachment for field conversion.

    Pneumatic downforce compressor and gauge Pneumatic downforce compressor and gauge

    An improved compressor is used to charge the pneumatic system. This compressor can be located on the planter frame or in the tractor cab if desired. A gauge at the compressor indicates the amount of downforce being applied.

    From the factory, integral planter models with pneumatic downforce will have an improved air compressor assembly with an in-cab mounting bracket, except for the 1725 16-row and 1725 CCS Twin-Row Planters, which will have the air compressor assembly mounted on the planter frame. For drawn planter models, the 1745, 1755, 1765, 1765NT, 1775 Front-Fold, and 1785 Drawn Planters will have the air compressor assembly installed either on the outer hitch or wing frame members when the pneumatic downforce system is installed.

    Base equipment on: 1705, 1725, 1735, 1745, 1755, 1765, 1765NT, 1775 and 1785. 

    Integrated pneumatic downforce system

    The functional features of the integrated system are the same as the standard pneumatic system, explained above, with the addition of control through the GreenStar display.

    Planter row-unit downforce is an important factor to ensure consistent and proper depth control. The heavy-duty adjustable downforce feature provides up to 181.4 kg (400 lb) of downforce. There are four settings available to allow the operator to choose the amount of downforce required for the condition: 0 kg (0 lb), 56.7 kg (125 lb), 113.4 kg (250 lb), and 181.4 kg (400 lb).

    Compatibility: 1705, 1725, 1735, 1745, 1755, 1765, 1765NT, 1775 Flex, and 1785

    Pneumatic closing wheels are compatible with MaxEmerge™ 5e and ExactEmerge™ row-units. They are available on the following models from the factory: 1775NT, 1795, and DB60 models. The pneumatic closing wheels give operators the ability to adjust closing wheels in seconds without leaving the cab of the tractor.

     

    Using the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display, pneumatic closing wheels can be adjusted to 25 different positions. From the factory the system is setup with two sections, the outer wings and center frame. With this system, producers will see up to a 76 percent increase in consistent force applied at the closing wheel. Consistently applying the correct force at the seed trench is one of the key elements of supporting improved emergence. Studies show potential yield impact on corn from even emergence from 5 percent to 9 percent*.

     

    NOTE: Pneumatic closing wheels can be purchased for existing MaxEmerge 5e and ExactEmerge planters as an aftermarket field kit. Both rubber tire and cast-iron closing wheels are compatible.

     

    Access the pneumatic closing wheels attachment for field conversion (AFC) ordering guide to fit a 1725 CCS, 1775NT, 1795, or DB60 Planter.
