Precision Planting


In 1993, Precision Planting was founded on the principle that paying attention to details paid large dividends in terms of yield, profits and growth.  Its company fosters new ideas and technology that contribute to the better seed spacing, better depth control and better root systems.  The scope of the company has introduced proprietary meter components and calibration systems (hardware) and new planter electronic systems and field prescriptions (software).  Ultimately, through Precision Planting’s planter monitoring systems, germination tools and singulation tools, growers are able to achieve the best possible control of depth, spacing and germination.

Schwartz Farms has been a Precision Planting local dealer in northeast Ohio since January 2010.  Those here at Schwartz Farms work as a collective group to guarantee our customers always have assistance.  For example, we service our customers by putting their meters on our MeterMax Ultra test stand to complete an accurate calibration of their meters.  Meters are cleaned, calibrated and repaired, if necessary, in order to ensure that meters perform at peak performance.

See below pictures of a meter before and after it was cleaned and calibrated:

Monitoring System

20/20 SeedSense Monitor

SeedSense-2The 20/20 SeedSense Monitor System gives you better information AND more information than your current planter monitor.  This can reduce the margin of error  with planting populations, thus allows growers to more actively manage their planters and maximize their crop production.  Click here for more information on the 20/20 SeedSense system.

Germination Tool

CleanSweep

CleanSweep-standard-cylinde-2With field conditions varying greatly from field to field, day to day, even row to row, manually adjusting row cleaners are time consuming and can slow down planting.  That’s why Precision Planting has created CleanSweep, which is a dual air cylinder that lets growers set and adjust the row cleaners’ down pressure from the cab.  Click here for more information on the CleanSweep cylinder.

Singulation Tool

vSet

vSet-open-corn-disk-2

Despite the innovativeness and excellent performance of the Precision Planting eSet meter, this system was only offered to John Deere machines.  Now, the new vSet vacuum meters offer improved singulation, longer wear life, more convenience, and greater seed flexibility to a wider variety of planters allowing growers to pair the right planter with their operations without compromising meter performance.


Seed Lubricants

In addition to offering both software and hardware systems, Precision Planting sells eFlow–a blend of talc and graphite that improves seed loading and seed release–and Graphite Powder–a lubricant needed to extend wear life and improve meter performance.  Schwartz Farms offers both products and instructions on their use.
