Precision Planting launches three new planter attachments for 2011

Precision Planting representative Steve Nokleby, Montevideo, Minnesota, overviews three new products from the company: 1) the 20/20 AirForce downforce control system that controls downforce on each planter unit to ensure even crop emergence without compacting soil; 2) CleanSweep, a dual air cylinder that lets you set and adjust your row cleaners’ down pressure from the cab; and 3) the WaveVision seed sensor that uses density readings instead of light beams to measure population, seed spacing, skips and doubles even when dust is present.
