Incorrect Down Force Could Cost You up to 16 Bu/A*

Checking to make sure that planter is at the right down force setting is one of the most important things to do during planting. But checking the down force setting at one place in the field is just the starting point. The ultimate goal is to ensure down force is set correctly across the whole field, not just at one point. Seeds planted at a consistent depth help achieve uniform emergence which sets the stage for the rest of the season.

Down Force Requirements are Variable by the Foot

The amount of down force needed varies drastically across the field, and even across the planter. Different soil types and textures, moisture in soil, or just the combine tracks from the last fall create different environments for each row of the planter each year. Our research shows that the weight carried on the gauge wheels while planting can vary by over 800 lbs within 3 feet. As you plant across the field your down force needs are changing, but is your planter? 

DeltaForce Takes Control

You need a planter that can sense these changing environments and adjust each row automatically. DeltaForce takes your existing planter and adds a down force sensor and hydraulic cylinder to each row. This ensures all seeds are planted at the optimal down force, ensuring consistent depth while eliminating excess compaction, row by row.
