For private and commercial applicators who need precise weather information in order to make proper product application and other weather-related decisions, John Deere Mobile Weather is now available.
Mobile Weather uses a third-party weather sensor connected to the Application Controller 1120 to display real-time weather information, including wind speed and direction, Delta T, and temperature and relative humidity on the John Deere GreenStar 2 or GreenStar 3 displays. However, only the GreenStar 3 2630 Display is capable of documenting (recording) weather data, which can be transferred to Apex or other third party farm management software for analysis and record keeping.
John Deere Mobile Weather enables operators to make in-cab product application decisions based on location-specific weather data. In addition, operators don’t have to rely on hand-held devices or make multiple stops to manually check and record weather conditions when applying product.
Mobile Weather helps improve the efficiency and effectiveness of sprayer applications because it notifies operators of potential spraying issues when wind, temperature and humidity conditions are difficult. This increases compliance, saves time and trips across the field and reduces the need for weather-related reapplication of products.
