John Deere, Dawn Equipment Company Sign Allied Agreement

John Deere, Dawn Equipment Company Sign Allied Agreement

Collaboration allows distribution of Dawn products through the John Deere dealer channel.

John Deere on Wednesday announced an alliance with Dawn Equipment Company, Inc., a manufacturer specializing in ground engaging tools and active control systems for planters, to sell and support Dawn hydraulic-controlled down-force systems, row cleaners, and closing wheels for planters.

With the agreement, customers will also be able to purchase Dawn's complete line of M Series closing wheels and other products through the John Deere dealer channel, a statement said.

Current offerings from Dawn will focus on retrofitting the current line of John Deere 1770, 1770NT, and DB Planters

"With this agreement, we will be able to collaborate with Dawn to distribute customizable, hydraulic-control down-force systems and attachments to enhance overall planter performance," says Aaron Wetzel, vice president of the global crop care platform.

"Utilizing Dawn technology, producers will be able to have an automated, closed-loop control for planter hydraulic down-force, displayed on an HD map from an iPad in the tractor cab," Wenzel explained.

Current offerings from Dawn will focus on retrofitting the current line of John Deere 1770, 1770NT, and DB Planters. These products will also be compatible with the recently introduced MaxEmerge 5 and ExactEmerge 1775 and 1775NT Planters.
