The 20/20 SeedSense® Monitor System gives you better information and more information. Information that lets you actively manage your planter and make changes that make you money.
The 20/20 SeedSense® system more precisesy than any other monitor gives you the information you need to know to find and correct problems in the field. Information about population, skip, doubles, speed, row unit ride, down force and ground contact allowing you to maintain your planters performance.
The Down Force section of 20/20 lets you measure (and manage) down force in three important ways:
- Average weight – see the average weight being carried by the gauge wheel. This is the weight not used by the double disk openers to penetrate the soil to planting depth.
- Margin – this is the amount of weight that could be removed from the row unit and still maintain ground contact and proper seeding depth.
- Ground Contact – this display tells you the percentage of the time that your gauge wheels are carrying weight. If the gauge wheels are carrying weight, you know that your disk openers are fully penetrating to the depth you set.
