Replace Complex Drive Systems

vDrive Features

Variable Rate

Changing seeding rates based on the yield potential of different areas of the field just makes sense. vDrive hits the rates because each row can change population independently, rather than all rows planting the same population.

Individual Swath Control

vDrive allows the seed and insecticide meter to turn off, row-by-row, at a boundary or on previous coverage, making sure that you don't overspend on inputs.

Steady Population on Curves

With vDrive on your planter, each meter turns the speed that matches the speed of that row unit, so the plant population is correct on each row of the planter.

Add vSet Meters to Run vDrive on Your Planter

vSet seed meters singulate seeds accurately without any adjustments resulting in perfect seed placement throughout your field. They are a complete replacement for traditional meters that enable high-speed planting and electric drive. vSet meters are required to run vDrive.

Combine vDrive with mSet for Multi-Hybrid Capabilities

If you have variability in your field that calls for different seeding rates, could two different hybrids help you be more profitable in the different areas of the field? vSet and vDrive can be combined with the mSet Multi Hybrid system to vary not only population rates across the field but hybrids, too.
