John Deere Construction | Precision Ag Technology
- Eliminates manual tagging of modules
- Provides module tracking, tracing, and delivery to the gin
- Document cotton harvest on-the-go
Eliminate the need to manually tag round cotton modules with John Deere Harvest Identification (ID), Cotton. John Deere Harvest Identification, Cotton allows producers to be able to automatically document module production from the cab of the CP690 Self-Propelled Cotton Picker or CS690 Self-Propelled Cotton Stripper.
How it works
John Deere Harvest Identification, Cotton utilizes the radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader on the CP690 Self-Propelled Cotton Picker or CS690 Self-Propelled Cotton Stripper to read the module serial number off the RFID tags that are embedded in the round cotton module wrap. The module serial number is sent to the Application Controller 1120 and combined with the client, farm, field, variety, and machine identifier plus the date, time, and GPS position of where the module was wrapped if equipped with a StarFire™ Receiver.
After the information is compiled in the Application Controller 1120, the .txt file is sent to the GreenStar™ 3 2630 or Gen 4 4640 Universal Display and stored in the file server. When it is convenient for the producer, the file can easily be transferred from the display to the Operations Center via Wireless Data Transfer or to a computer via USB in order to electronically submit the information to the gin.
Easily track module production with two customizable and resettable counters. John Deere Harvest Identification, Cotton not only documents the critical module information as the round cotton module is wrapped, it also provides two counters that increment up each time a module is wrapped. This provides the ability for producers to set each counter for specific information. For example, one counter may track module production per field while the second counter tracks total cotton module production for the harvest season. Each counter is resettable at any time to allow for maximum flexibility and customization.
John Deere is simplifying the transfer of module information from the producer to the gin. With John Deere Harvest Identification, Cotton all critical module information such as module serial number, client, farm, field, variety, latitude, and longitude of where the module was wrapped is captured in the ModuleID.txt file. The ModuleID file is stored within the file server on the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display or Gen 4 4640 Universal Display until it is easily transferred to the Operations Center or a computer and emailed to the gin or uploaded into the gin's business system. Wireless Data Transfer can also be utilized to automatically send Harvest ID data to Operations Center so that it can be shared with any trusted advisor or gin.
