Great Plains now offers two new air carts with 350-bu. capacity: ADC2350 (pull between) and ADC2350B (pull behind).

The ADC2350 features a semi-mounted cart-to-implement design,allowing the implement to float behind the cart. This shortens the overall length of the air drill by up to 15 ft. for better maneuverability. The ADC2350B rides on lugged flotation tires and offers unmatched flotation and excellent implement versatility, Great Plains says.

Both models are equipped with two 175-bu. poly hoppers, allowing users to fill both hoppers with seed for fewer stops. Or, fill one hopper with seed and the other with fertilizer to reduce field passes. The models also feature pressurized and compartmentalized meters to ensure equal seed amounts to all towers and even seeding across the entire drill width.

Trimble introduces the AgGPS 442 GNSS receiver, a global navigation satellite system (GNSS). The new receiver can track GLONASS and next-generation global positioning system (GPS) L2C satellite signals.

The new GLONASS and GPS L2C processing capability from Trimble improves signal availability for high accuracy real-time kinematic (RTK) agricultural applications that rely heavily on “Z,” or vertical axis satellite positioning data. It also aids RTK applications in geographic areas with limited periods of GPS signal availability.
