John Deere upgrades Operations Center

Presented by

John Deere customers will have access to more in-depth data after the company announced updates to its Operations Center.

Customers can now do more with John Deere’s Operations Center

The updates went live on November 11 and will allow users to gain a clearer picture of their equipment’s productivity. 

"As part of the update, farmers can now access high-level productivity metrics on a map, including layers that illustrate equipment productivity, tonnes per hour of your combine, fuel usage and historical machine activity in the field," Deere’s Australian precision agriculture manager Benji Blevin says.

"The ability to view these metrics clearly on a map allows farmers and contractors to pick up trends and identify inefficiencies within their operation. 

"For example, during harvest, users will be able to visualise the performance of multiple machines, highlighting potential opportunities for improvements to a particular machine or operator.

"This enables farmers and contractors to lift the productivity of their entire fleet – and finish harvest faster."

Blevin also says the updates streamline the process for farmers who want to securely share farm information with other stakeholders.

"Whole-farm reports can be generated and safely shared with a few simple clicks, meaning critical farm information can be distributed to advisors, contractors, or partners," he says.

"Whether for seeding, spraying, or harvest, farmers can quickly and easily demonstrate the full scope of work rolling out on-farm."

Deere says the updates are part of the company’s overarching goal of "helping farmers and contractors synchronise the management of their people, equipment and data".

Farmers using a SeedStar 4 planter with Gen4 display can access new layers of data such as speed spacing, ride quality and applied downforce and see how field conditions and planting parameters have impacted performance.

Other features of the updates include being able to better manage fields and boundaries, removing unwanted data and creating work plans for future harvests using historical data and the new map view.

Deere says its Operations Center has four main objectives – setup organisation, plan work, monitor farm and analyse performance.
