John Deere 600R Rigid Platforms: How Do They Handle Small Grain And Rice?

This harvesting season, how will you ensure you maximize field time while improving productivity and capturing the greatest amount of crop possible? With John Deere 600R Rigid Platforms, you can be sure you’ll end up with outstanding crop material handling in small grain and rice.

The JD 600R Series, which includes the 622, 625, and 630 Rigid Platforms, features a number of highlights that can help operators make the most of their harvesting season. With the heavy-duty epicyclic knife drive gearbox, for instance, operators have access to an enhanced knife drive system that increases drive capacity; among other features, a 3.5-inch knife stroke improves the cutterbar’s ability to cut in adverse conditions (i.e., large-stemmed crops or weeds) without plugging. In addition, 4-inch double cut knives provide both increased cutting capacity and harvesting speed.

When it comes to crop material handling, the large diameter (26 inch) auger provides up to 30% greater capacity than previous models. The auger accepts a larger mat of crop material underneath the auger, providing greater control of the crop. This results in a smoother, more consistent crop flow into the combine, for increased harvesting productivity and minimized losses.

Steve Shirtliffe, Professor in the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Saskatchewan, discusses remotely sensed UAV and satellite imagery and how it can be used to monitor crop growth and inform agronomic decisions.

Watch to learn about machine learning techniques that allow for mapping and predicting crop stage, crop yield potential, soil salinity, weed patch dynamics, crop emergence, and soil organic carbon content.

This session was presented at the semi-annual Precision Agriculture Conference.
