Deere launches precision update
The latest John Deere Digital Ecosystem upgrades will help farmers and contractors ensure their business’s workflow is running smoothly.


Farmers will be able to schedule tasks for operators from their mobile device following a new update to John Deere’s Precision Agriculture packages.

The company’s Work Planner package will be incorporated into the John Deere Operations Centre in January, John Deere Australia and New Zealand’s new Precision Agriculture Manager, Benji Blevin, has announced.

Blevin says the package will help farmers and contractors ensure their workflow runs smoothly and that data is collected accurately, while allowing operators to start work as soon as they are in the paddock.

"This technology means farmers can plan and communicate much more efficiently with their operators about work that needs to be completed," he says.

"Because the information is synced, everyone is working off the same plan. This helps reduce mistakes, and also assists farm managers to more effectively monitor overall job quality as they can see exactly what’s happening and make adjustments if needed."

The package can transmit information such as fields, varieties, and products to the operator in the field, as well as allowing them to monitor equipment and fieldwork and analyse the performance of various fields, varieties and products from anywhere.

Plans can be created, modified and actioned instantly either from the office, or on the go through a mobile phone.

"For the operator, this means when they drive into a paddock a pop up will appear on the Generation 4 CommandCenter with the Work Plan for that field, and they can click one button to set up data collection on the display and get started," Blevin says.

Deere will also better align Operations Center web (for desktop) and Operations Center mobile (formerly called MyOperations), creating a common interface to simplify the farm data management package.

The improved Operations Center mobile is active online, while the iOS version for Apple mobile products is available in the Apple App Store.

The Android version will be available from Google Play in coming weeks.

New users can create an Operations Center account at or contact their local John Deere dealer for more information.
