Ag Leader Introduces SureDrive™

Ag Leader has come out with its own electric drive called SureDrive™ As well as improving meter performance and section control, SureDrive has the ability to instantly adjust population rates and maintain consistent seed spacing despite changes in the field, changes to planter speed, or on curves and headlands. As with most Ag Leader products, the SureDrive is “color-blind”, built to install on most major planter brands on the market. The efficient, yet high torque electric drive motor isn’t tied to a specific brand or type of seed meter making it able to work on the meter and planter you already have.

Benefits of In-Bin Grain Moisture Monitoring

by Chandra B. Singh, Ph.D., P.Eng. and Ron Larson, M.Sc., P.Eng.
