JOHN Deere has been awarded with two silver medals by the SIMA 2019 show, which will be held in Paris from February 24 to 28.

Machine Dashboard provides remote machine monitoring and notifications to John Deere dealers via the JDLink telematics system. It allows the dealer to easily and quickly identify machines that require immediate service attention to potential machine component failures, with clear instructions on how to solve the issues identified.

Both allow customers and dealers to reduce service costs and improve operational efficiencies, to get work done on time with fewer service interruptions.

John Deere Connected Support tools including Expert Alerts and Machine Dashboard are available factory installed on new John Deere self-propelled equipment and can be dealer installed on recent model ranges, including 6M to 9R Series tractors, self-propelled sprayers, combines and forage harvesters.

With the Live NBalance tool, Airbus and John Deere are able to offer for the first time live monitoring of nitrogen balance in the field. The joint project is based on a combination of satellite images and machinery data, which continuously observe nitrogen uptake by the crop in each part of the field.

During the growing season, the service allows the farmer to make more informed decisions on subsequent fertiliser applications. After harvest, it summarises the total N applied and removed, ready to use for regulation purposes.
