Section Control Savings Calculator

Our section control solutions allow you to turn specific segments of your implements on and off as needed to eliminate lost yield due to skipped and double covered areas. Whether that is when you are planting once or twice a year, or one of the many times you run your sprayer over your crops, section control pays for itself quickly with reduced input costs and increased yield.

This Section Control ROI tool takes important agronomic and equipment factors into consideration to provide an estimate on the amount of savings you will see by adding this technology to your equipment. By providing your average yield and commodity price, we can calculate yield loss due to oveplanting or overspraying. With seed populations, seeds per bag and price per bag of seed, we can calculate your savings from reduced input costs.

Add it all together and you have a solution that makes a lot of sense for any growing operation. See for yourself!

Planting

 

Planting Calculator

  • What is the seed popoulation per acre of the crop you want to have section control technology added?
  • How many seeds are in one bag? (US standards: corn - 80,000, soy - 140,000)
  • What is your average yield for your farm?
  • For the crop you have in mind what is the commodity unit price?
  • When planting into the headlands that area of overplanting suffers a yield loss. Select the range in which you think is a fair estimate for a yield percentage loss.
  • What is the row spacing for your planter?
  • How many rows are on your planter?
  • How many sections would you like to have on your planter or would you want for each row to be controlled?
  • Pick the field that best represents the kind of fields you farm.
