For Americans who have used John Deere equipment and need precise weather information for private and commercial applicators, the company has introduced the John Deere Mobile Weather program, according to a company release.
The release noted that Mobile Weather uses a third-party weather sensor connected to the Application Controller 1120 to display real-time weather information, including wind speed and direction, Delta T, and relative humidity and temperature on the company's GreenStar 2 or GreenStar 3 displays.
"Mobile Weather is perfect for producers or commercial applicators who need to capture weather information as part of their record keeping, documentation and data analysis, or for maintaining government compliance," Janae Althouse, product manager with the John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group, said in a statement. "It integrates easily into existing sprayer and GreenStar displays without the need for additional hand-held devices or displays to provide on-the-go weather monitoring."
According to the release, the weather application can be mounted on any John Deere 4940, 4930, 4830 and 4730 Self-Propelled Sprayers, with GreenStar displays.
Farm Journal reported that there have been an increasing number of tools available for a farmer, as mobile applications can allow someone to be proactive instead of reactive in their day-to-day operations.
