Precision Planting Products are Simple to Use

Brett Schmit | a corn farmer from Nebraska

“Hey, I’m Brett Schmit from David City in Nebraska, and I’ve been using Precision Planting products for five years now. I chose Precision Planting products because of the simplicity, here in Nebraska.

Weatherwise, we deal with everything from extreme dry, extreme wet, and about every soil type. Everything from pure sand to hard clays.

When I started out with the eSets, they're a great product. Work pretty flawlessly.

Then I upgraded to the WaveVision seed tubes, which would allow me to read what the planter was doing more accurately.

And I always kinda wanted some downforce control. All I had was downforce with airbags.

And when DeltaForce came out, I knew that was the one. Gave you the most control.

And I added vDrive when I did DeltaForce because it all kind of plays together, plugs in, same harness. And when my dealer showed me on a test stand what the vDrive can do, I knew I wanted that on my planter.

"When you’re going through the field and your singulation's at one hundred percent, and your low on the singulation is a hundred, you know it’s doing a good job."

I guess the most satisfied moment I’ve had was the first field we went to this year with the new vDrive and DeltaForce set-up. When you’re going through the field and your singulation's at one hundred percent, and your low on the singulation is a hundred, you know it’s doing a good job.

It's, pretty amazing."
