John Deere has introduced new precision ag solutions with Generation 4 CommandCenter Premium Activation to better capture, manage and transfer data.

The offering combines the three most commonly used applications from the GreenStar 3 2630 display, AutoTrac, Documentation and Section Control, along with vehicle functionality, through the on-board 4600 CommandCenter integrated display.

The solutions are available on 6R, 7R, 8R and 9R Series Tractors.

John Deere’s Jarred Karnei said "this latest update to our precision ag solutions capitalises on the positive feedback we've received on the redesign of the CommandCenter.

"The 4600 CommandCenter gives customers the ability to capture more accurate data while making it easier to manage, document and transfer that data. Ultimately, this allows them to make more informed input decisions that directly enhance the operation of machines and improve the yield, productivity and profitability of their operations."

The premium activation integrates a number of different applications, including section control, which provides customers with potential input savings by minimising skips and overlap.

The AutoTrac machine guidance application also includes software updates. Operators can now shift AB curves radially at any point in the curve, offering flexibility to deal with waterways, terraces and other obstacles.

The Documentation feature rounds out the package. With Documentation, operators can manage and track a variety of applications, including capturing and recording all field operations.

Wireless data transfer, using JDLink Connect allows wireless information flow from the machine to the John Deere operations center.

"Customers can now quickly change items when they switch fields, and double-check field, machine and prescription attributes all from a single convenient location," Mr Karnei said.
