Crop residue management and timely planting also help to achieve maximum yield,” says Adam Sipes, product specialist with John Deere Seeding Group. “By retrofitting their late model John Deere planter with ExactEmerge components, customers can expect up to a 100% increase in planting speed, at least a 10 percent improvement in seed spacing accuracy, and improved performance on side hills, all without impacting depth control.”The ExactEmerge Retrofit Kits are available for model year 2011 and newer 1770NT CCS and 1790 planters as well as model year 2012 and newer DB Series planters.

Other components include planter controller with SeedStar 3 HP, backbone harness and tractor power generation harnessing, vacuum automation, and curve compensation capability.Kits require the use of tractor power generation and GreenStar 3 2630 Display for full operation. Depending on model of planter and tractor, additional components may be needed to complete the retrofit.“The ExactEmerge technology is revolutionizing the planting industry,” Sipes adds. “The Retrofit Kit now gives more customers the ability to incorporate much of this technology onto their existing late-model planters and gain these improvements for themselves.”For more information on the new ExactEmerge Retrofit Kits for late-model John Deere planters, see your local John Deere dealer or visit www.JohnDeere.com/Ag.last_img read more

Meet Fandor: A Netflix For Indie Film Lovers

first_imgmike melanson A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting If you’re an independent film lover, than big name online movie sites like Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand and Hulu Plus probably don’t do it for you. They’re full of blockbuster hits, mainstream movies and TV shows. If, however, you’re into cult classics, film noir, international hits and more, Fandor, the “online service for indie film fans,” is for you. Fandor has more than 2,000 films in its online catalog. By comparison, Amazon Video On Deman has only around 1,200 films, while Netflix only overlaps with 20% of Fandor’s catalog. The difference here, according to Fandor, is curation, with each film is chosen based on its artistic, historic and entertainment value.Just going onto the site and looking at the selection of categories, you can immediately see that this isn’t going to be your standard, mainstream drivel. As the company notes in its release, “You know you’re not in Hollywood anymore when you click on ‘Seafaring & Swashbucklers’, ‘Anarchic Comedy’ or ‘Dysfunctional Families.’”“Indie film fans simply don’t care about the same things as traditional movie-goers,” said Chris Kelly, a social technology evangelist who sits on Fandor’s board of directors. “Indie fans want to be enriched or moved by the film, which is a personal thing that’s hard to predict based on past viewing habits or a Q&A. They are highly suspect of being marketed to, invest heavily in discovering new things, but depend very much on personal recommendations for taste making. It’s a natural fit for social.”The service has been in beta for several months but is launching to the public today. Users can sign up for a free month trial. From there, the service is $9.99 a month and is available on both the Web and on Boxee.
