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.

DeltaForce enables just that, automatically & continuously.


Two directions of control plus a simple user interface — dominating down force like no one else.

DeltaForce replaces the springs or air bags on your planter with hydraulic cylinders. It automatically increases or reduces weight with military precision, on each row individually.

So when one row encounters conditions different than another (wheel tracks, old road beds, clay knobs, headlands, whatever), each will adjust independently.

Row by row, foot by foot, depth stays exactly where you want it. Row by row, foot by foot, even seed by seed, you produce an environment that fosters uniform germination, optimum growth and maximum yield. You can put DeltaForce on most Deere, CaseIH, Kinze and select White planter models.

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.

The Realization

The Question:

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

The Response:

“The same setting as last year.”

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?


DeltaForce is a unique solution to down force that has features and performance no one else offers.

from the technology to in-action, in-the-field results

Control down force with military precision. Win the battle for higher yields.

When you control down force, you avoid shallow-planted seeds and you avoid root compaction. Simply put, you increase your yield.

And nothing – nothing – controls down force better than DeltaForce™ from Precision Planting. In every foot on every pass, in each individual row, it monitors row unit weight and ground contact, then instantly and automatically adjusts to maintain the depth you set. You get your best possible yield – your best possible return on investment.

DeltaForce is available for most John Deere, CaseIH, Kinze and select White planter models.

DeltaForce works with 20/20 SeedSense® and replaces the springs or air bags on your planter. It includes hydraulic cylinders harnessed to cab, plus a weight pin that sends data to SeedSense which, in turns, controls the cylinders – and your down force.

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 85%. It’s a mystery why such a critical issue as
down force – seed depth – is left unattended.

85% - OEM Air Bag Accuracy
98% - DeltaForce Accuracy
