John Deere of Olathe, Kan., has introduced a mobile weather station for applicators.
John Deere Mobile Weather uses a third-party weather sensor connected to the Application Controller 1120 to show real-time weather information, including wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity on GreenStar 2 or 3 displays, according to a news release.
But only the GreenStar3 is able to record that weather data so it can be transferred to other software programs.
Having that real-time information inside the cab allows the applicator to make decisions on the fly.
It also makes applicators more productive since they don’t have to stop to check hand-held weather devices, according to a news release.
The mobile station can be mounted on John Deere 4940, 4930, 4830 and 4730 Self-Propelled Sprayers with GreenStar displays.
