John Deere Field Connect brings eessential data from the field to your fingertips

Producers are continually looking for ways to enhance the performance of their input costs and improve their management decisions. Everything can look good on the surface, but sometimes it’s what you can’t see that costs you. Moisture levels can vary significantly within each field and from field to field. The John Deere Field Connect Soil Moisture Monitoring system offered by Green Line Equipment, is innovative in soil moisture monitoring offerings. This John Deere system offers straightforward help to maximize the optimal spot where crops thrive, resources are monitored, and profits increase. The central point of the John Deere Field Connect system is the ability to precisely measure sub surface moisture and determine how water moves through soil by utilizing five sensors inside the probe.


 

Field Connect tells you what your crops need when they need it

  • Monitors moisture levels and feeds data to digital platforms accessible via desktop or mobile devices
  • Allows you to make timely irrigation decisions from anywhere
  • Allows you to optimize the crop’s water use efficiency by alerting you when moisture levels in the soil profile are reaching full or refill points
  • Helps eliminate overwatering reducing leaching of nutrients and encouraging uptake of nutrients for better crop heath and increased yields
  • The Field Connect system consists of a moisture probe, environmental sensors, and a gateway to record and send data to the Field Connect website




Moisture Probe

 John Deere Field Connect™ offers three different moisture probes to match the solution need for a wide variety of crops. With options of 0.5-m, 1.0-m, and 1.5-m, John Deere offers a Capacitance Based solution for shallow rooted crops up to deep rooted crops.
 
Located in primarily corn and soybean farm country, the 1.0-m probe has been the probe of choice in our area. With one meter, irrigation amounts can be managed to effectively refill a profile of where the crop is drawing moisture. The sum, line, and stacked graphs, show the root-developed depth and moisture uptake.
