ExactEmerge[TM] row unit.
John Deere, Moline, Illinois, USA www.deere.com
The ExactEmerge[TM] row unit is the most highly productive row unit in the industry with an exclusive seed delivery system that plants at speeds up to 16 kph (10 mph). The seed meter and delivery system have a crisp seed hand off and control the seed through the delivery process from the meter to the ground. The seed releases from the delivery cartridge at a rearward speed that matches the forward speed of the planter, resulting in a dead drop of the seed into the trench. The ExactEmerge[TM] row unit is fully controlled by two electric motors and has a new reflective seed sensor in the delivery cartridge to monitor the system performance. The result is superior seed placement, allowing the seed to get to the bottom of the trench for excellent depth control and seed spacing at higher planting speeds.
