John Deere has introduced the Rate Controller 2000, which features increased section control and is able to be used across multiple platforms.


With the intention of replacing the GreenStar Rate Controller, John Deere has made the new Rate Controller 2000 compatible with implements utilising a GreenStar 3 2630 Display.

The 2000 integrates with a wide variety of implements, including non-John Deere sprayers, liquid and dry fertiliser systems, anhydrous applicators and some planters.

The new module aids in field documentation, map-based prescription applications, and overlap reduction control when used with John Deere Section Control activation.

John Deere says the new rate controller can manage the application of up to five different products, liquid or dry, and will have increased section control capabilities when making those applications.

The company also says customers will have the ability to simultaneously apply liquid fertilisers, along with other inputs such as herbicides, insecticides, or granular products, which it says will reduce the number of field passes and improve productivity.

John Deere production and precision agriculture marketing manager John Mishler says the Rate Controller 2000’s ability to be used across a range of machines makes it a better choice for customers who need flexibility.

"The new John Deere Rate Controller 2000 provides much greater flexibility and utility across numerous equipment platforms for customers who want a single rate controller," he says.

"Customers using other rate controllers can easily and conveniently migrate to a single John Deere Rate Controller 2000 at a lower cost versus adding multiple controllers."

John Deere says it can be used on "non-John Deere equipment such as 3-point mounted sprayers and drawn sprayers when used with a GreenStar 3 2630 Display, or tractors equipped with the 4600 CommandCenter".
