John Deere launches real-time sprayer and planter monitoring app

John Deere has introduced the new Connect Mobile App with the aim of helping growers monitor, adjust and learn from the performance of their planter or sprayer while it moves through the field

With the app growers can monitor job quality in real time and better understand what is going on with their sprayer or planter in nozzle-by-nozzle and row-by-row detail. “By using Connect Mobile, operators will know they are doing the best possible job with the investment they have made in their John Deere equipment,” says John Mishler, production and precision ag marketing manager for John Deere.

By visualising job performance, operators can quickly and more easily identify potential problems. Multiple map layers across production steps provide additional insights for growers to consider that can improve their productivity and reduce operating costs.

Over time, Connect Mobile will include other operations, such as harvesting, the ability to add more data and to help growers make better-informed decisions with greater confidence.

Operators can seamlessly move the app from one John Deere machine to the next, and from one production step to another with Connect Mobile’s common user interface. “The result is a better understanding of the job being performed. Data is saved on the iPad so it goes where you go. At any time, or in any location as the data is saved, you can quickly review past work,” Mishler adds.

Using the app, operators can easily compare data layers from previous production steps with what’s seen when scouting fields. “This information can help growers better understand what might have caused what they're seeing in the field,” Mishler explains.
