JOHN DEERE 1910 AIR CART RETROFIT SECTION CONTROL NOW AVAILABLE
Source: John Deere news release

Intelligent Agricultural Solutions, LLC (Intelligent Ag), a leader in electronics innovations for modern farming, announces the release of Engage Zone Control, the industry's first retrofit section control available for John Deere air carts.

A video accompanying this announcement is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/aabf8819-ee34-451c-8441-fb6c3b71c8da

Custom designed and built for the popular John Deere 1910 model air cart, it is easily installed underneath the meter housing. Engage Zone Control integrates with the existing GPS mapping system to identify areas of potential overlap, and uses electric motors to actuate slide gates that shut off up to eight sections per tank (up to three tanks per cart). The product release of Engage Zone Control presents the first time that retrofit section control has been available to older-model air carts. The benefit to farmers is they now have an affordable way to add yield-boosting, input-reducing precision seeding capabilities to existing John Deere 1910 air carts.

While the air seeding industry started seeing section control technology on new machines around 2014, the only way to obtain it was by purchasing a new air cart. Intelligent Ag set out to develop an affordable after-market solution for growers who wanted to get more out of their existing air carts.

"Engage Zone Control is advancing engineering in crop production by providing an affordable way for growers to utilize section control technology on their older model air carts," said Joe Heilman, General Manager at Intelligent Ag. "This enables tens of thousands of growers to run a more cost-efficient seeding operation, ultimately reducing their input costs and improving their bottom line," Heilman added.

Like all Intelligent Ag products, Engage Zone Control is easy to install and built to last. For growers who want to get the most out of their existing equipment, it's a simple and economical solution.

Engage Zone Control will be available in 2018. Find a dealer at www.intelligentag.com/dealer-locator.
