Olathe, Kan. – John Deere introduces the new P600 Precision Air-Hoe Drills in sizes ranging from 60- to 90-foot working widths to address small grains air-seeding needs. The new models include the P660, P670, P680, and P690 with 10- to 12-inch spacing and new dual knife openers. The new dual-knife opener consistently places fertilizer 1.5 inches horizontally and 0.75 inches vertically away from the seed for even emergence and equal access to nutrients. This new lineup gives customers a wide variety of options to suit their operation.
P600 Precision Air-Hoe Drills leverage existing integrated John Deere air seeding technologies that include three-inch primaries on greater than 60-foot working widths with John Deere distribution towers, improved tire options for optimal floatation, RelativeFlow™ blockage sensing, and full integration with John Deere tractors and air carts.
With RelativeFlow blockage sensing, farmers can see the flow rate of seed and fertilizer from inside the tractor cab. Sensors are located on all primary towers and secondary hoses and monitor the relative product flow providing a better view of the flow rate of seed and fertilizer from the cart to the opener. This helps farmers identify problems before potential blockage occurs.
New P600 Precision Air-Hoe Drills utilize the existing John Deere naming system. The "P" stands for Precision Hoe; “6” is the series number; followed by the two-digit tool width.
“New P600 Precision Air-Hoe Drills are part of our fully integrated small grains production system that can include a John Deere 9 Series Tractor equipped with a JDLink™ connection, John Deere Operations Center™, and John Deere Connected Support™, along with your choice of air carts, for the ultimate in air-seeding technology,” said Lina Pham, marketing manager for John Deere.
