The new 1895 is 40-per cent wider than previous models and incorporates new technologies to improve seeder and fertiliser placement while decreasing soil disturbance.

"This wider no-till air drill is a perfect fit for producers looking to cover more acres faster with greater precision and improved monitoring of seed and fertiliser placement," John Deere seeding product manager Emily Klemmer says.

"The 1895 is built on a heavy-duty tool bar for years of reliable operation under tough paddock conditions and is compatible with 430-and 550-bushel 1910 carts, as well as the C850 air cart, plus twin NH3 tanks," she adds.

The new John Deere 1895 offers plenty of new features, such as the new ProSeries openers, ReflectiveFlow blockage warning system, TruSet in-cab downforce pressure control and larger high-flotation tyres for less soil compaction.

The new ProSeries openers replace the previous 90 Series openers to improve seed-to-soil contact.

"The ProSeries openers help seal more anhydrous ammonia in the ground and improve seed-to-soil contact compared to previous openers," Klemmer says.

While the RelativeFlow blockage monitoring system will now be offered on the 60-ft (18.29 m) 1895 seeders to provide operators more accurate seeding performance information in the field.

"The seed rows on the new drill are on 10-inch (25.4 cm) spacing with separate fertiliser rows on 20-inch (50.8 cm) spacing," John Deere says.

"Seed and fertiliser rates are controlled by the SectionCommand metering system and powered by an AirPower two dual-fan for variable rate and prescription seeding applications – the twin fans provide a 40-per cent improvement in flow of seed and fertiliser to the openers across the entire seeding compared to a single-fan system," the company adds.
