Bad Root Structure Is A Hidden Loss

With too much weight on your row units, you get compacted roots.
With too little, you get seeds too close to the surface.

But when your down force matches field conditions, you maintain
the right depth and create a just-right seed environment for
maximum yield.

AirForce enables just that, automatically & continuously.

 

Instantaneous and automatic increase or reduction in down force as needed.

AirForce continuously adjusts the applied down force to changing soil types by changing the pressure in your air bags as conditions and hopper weights change, so you maintain proper depth. It’s configured specifically for your planter (Deere, CNH, White, Kinze), with lift or lift and down air bags.


All you have to do is select the control for your field and conditions. You’ll ensure consistent and correct down force. You’ll avoid sidewall compaction. You’ll encourage the uniform germination that gets the most out of every seed. And you’ll produce a better yield.

Accurate & intelligent data allows you better control and planning.   Integrated systems & data simplify your operation.

Leading Awareness Of Down Force

In general, down force control has a higher ROI than other products. It’s one of the biggest problem in planters now, but farmers don’t know because they can’t see it.

+/- Force for Any Soil Type.

Add or remove force — whether it’s soft or hard soil, you can manage it. Take the guesswork out of down force management.

Smart Pins, Smart Planter

Load pins across the planter sense the weight on the gauge wheels, so you get the right down force in the right place.

Compatible With Existing Equipment

Works on your Existing Planter. Works with Existing Air Bags.

The Realization

The Question:

“Where did you set your down force last year?”

The Response:

“Whatever my planter came set on.”

The Realization:

This is a critical aspect of their operation they may not be paying attention to.

It’s a lightbulb moment. What gives each ear the best shot? It’s consistent depth and not too much compaction.

We have individual row and active down pressure and lift pressure; no other companies do this.

Some farmers know they have down force issues, but most don’t even realize it could be a problem.

Down force is the most common issue that goes unaddressed and mostly because there isn’t enough awareness. How much yield potential could you be missing out on?

 

Planterwide, bonafide control gets the right down force for the best seed environment.

Take the guesswork out of down force management, quickly.

Root compaction is a big deal, and can really cut your yield. AirForce takes readings from weigh pins into SeedSense, teaming with FieldView, and uses air to automatically increase or decrease the weight on planter row units — so you get the right amount of down force for each and every condition, and the best seed environment.

Your existing air bags and all planter types work with AirForce, so you can upgrade your planter and take the guesswork out of down force management.

 

The Down Force Mystery

Singulation accuracy below the high 90s will throw most farmers into a panic. Yet we use
equipment with down force accuracy as low as 65%. It’s a mystery why such a critical issue as
down force – seed depth – is left unattended.

65% - Spring System Accuracy
85% - AirForce Accuracy

Are you ready for 85%?
