came to the agricultural fair
During a keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Jan. 5-8, John Deere unveiled its latest launches: the ExactShot and an electric excavator. Thanks to this new technology, users and customers will be able to conduct more profitable, useful and sustainable operations.
“Everything we do at John Deere is focused on purpose and real impact,” said Jahmi Hindman, the company’s CTO. “We are developing technology that enables our customers to provide the food, fuel, fiber and infrastructure that people need.”
ExactShot allows you to reduce by more than 60% the amount of initial fertilizer required during planting. Its technology uses sensors and robotics to apply fertilizer precisely to seeds planted in the soil, rather than applying a continuous stream to an entire row of seeds. This will help farmers to be more sustainable economically and environmentally.
This sowing technique uses a sensor to record the exact moment each seed is inserted into the soil. When this happens, a robot sprays the required amount of fertilizer, about 0.2 ml, directly onto the seed. For example, on US corn crops, ExactShot can save more than 93 million gallons of starting fertilizer per year and prevent waste from promoting weed growth.
Others, John Deere’s new electric excavator will improve construction reliability, performance and safety. It is powered by a Crezel battery and its use on construction sites reduces the number of moving parts, reduces noise pollution and produces fewer emissions. This new model will provide construction workers and road builders with lower daily operating costs and greater machine reliability without sacrificing power and performance.
