Mobile Weather from John Deere uses a third-party weather sensor connected to the Application Controller 1120 to display real-time weather information, including wind speed and direction, Delta T, temperature and relative humidity on the John Deere GreenStar 2 or GreenStar 3 display.
However, only the GreenStar 3 2630 display is capable of recording weather data, which can be transferred to Apex or other third-party farm-management software for analysis and record keeping.
John Deere Mobile Weather enables operators to make in-cab product application decisions based on location-specific weather data. In addition, operators don’t have to rely on handheld devices or make multiple stops to check and record weather conditions manually when they are making applications. The device can be mounted on any John Deere 4940, 4930, 4830 or 4730 Self-Propelled Sprayer that has a GreenStar display.
The device can also be programmed to warn the operator when current weather conditions are outside of preset parameters, which assists in optimal spraying. For more information, contact your local John Deere dealer or Agriculture Marketing Service specialist or visit www.johndeere.com.
