A new insecticide control system by Precision Planting enables farmers to simplify their planter and achieve more precise control of insecticide on every portion of their fields. 

Luke Stuber, vDrive Insecticide engineer, explains.  “Farmers applying insecticide today calibrate their meter for a single speed. As operators speed up, slow down or plant around curves, the intended application rate is impossible to maintain.  And, as high speed planting is now a reality with SpeedTube, the insecticide system needs to keep pace.” 

As growers have adopted vDrive technology from Precision Planting for row-by-row population control, it has allowed them to eliminate existing drive systems, chains, sprockets and hex-shafts.  vDrive Insecticide allows farmers to eliminate the mechanical drive systems for insecticide, and the maintenance that goes with it.

"vDrive Insecticide provides flexibility for farmers to micromanage their inputs with row-by-row control, and with a newly designed metering system, allows growers to optimize an application technology that has not had significant improvements in years," Stuber said.  “As farmers work to closely manage their inputs and optimize yields, vDrive Insecticide helps them more precisely manage insecticide applications in a continued effort to promote sustainable agriculture practices,” Stuber adds.

vDrive Insecticide will be field tested on a limited number of make/model combinations as a beta product for the Spring of 2015.
