With iSteer, gain higher yields and better crop quality through less crop damage, precise seed and fertilizer placement, as well as perfect seedbed preparation. Optimized tracks in the field, as well as time and seed savings, will also increase quality and yield to help raise profit.
iSteer is designed to maintain high-crop quality, among others, through less soil compaction. The system uses the same A-B line for the tractor and implement in the field to optimize and minimize tracks in order to protect against soil compaction. Soil compaction plays a critical role in applications for specialized farmers (example: vegetable growers).
iSteer is designed to maintain a high-crop quality.
iSteer plow steering is the guidance solution for all plows with variable working-width adjustment (varioplows) to create perfect furrows. With iSteer plow steering, John Deere provides a system for the very high demands in seedbed preparation.
The best plow results lead to perfect seed beds for crops that can grow in optimum conditions. Raise profits through the higher yields and better crop quality enabled by iSteer plow steering.
With iSteer plow steering, a constant working width is maintained in order to achieve straight furrows. By reducing wheel spin and plow depth variations, the system is able to lower fuel consumption, save time, and reduce wear on parts. These factors also help to increase profit.
The special agricultural production of vegetables (such as potatoes, carrots, and asparagus) requires the highest level of accuracy for machine steering to guarantee the best quality and yield. Beginning with the seedbed, it is important to prepare the soil in an optimum way with regards to moisture and soil structure. Seeds for carrots and potatoes, for example, need to be placed precisely on the top of ridges that are formed in advance.
Organic farmers are not allowed to use pesticides and, as a result, they need to work with mechanical weed-control machines. Operating in between the seed rows is challenging; farmers must take special care not to damage the crops.
With iSteer™, both the tractor and implement will be on the same guidance line in the field irrespectively of terrain, soil condition, or tractor configuration. While the tractor uses AutoTrac™ to follow the desired path in the field, the implement receiver provides a correction signal to the controller that steers the implement.
The real-time kinetic (RTK) correction signal delivers the highest accuracy level for the StarFire™ receiver. Transferring this accuracy to the ground is often a challenge since tractors are equipped with large soil-protecting tires that can cause floating tractors. Machine movements also cause the implements to move. With the required RTK correction signal, customers can achieve the highest accuracy level even at the implement.
With John Deere iSteer plow steering, John Deere provides a system for the high demands in seedbed preparation.
Agricultural production requires a perfect seed bed to guarantee the best quality and yield. iSteer plow is the solution to prepare the soil in an optimum way right from the beginning.
Irrespectively of terrain, soil condition or tractor configuration, iSteer plow steering creates perfect straight furrows and a perfect seedbed preparation.

iSteer provides the highest level of operator comfort. The operator only has a single button press to activate AutoTrac™ and iSteer. Audio tones make the operator aware when the system activates or deactivates. This leads to less operator input, such as steering control, while simultaneously producing a higher level of work quality. Operators can fully concentrate on implement control. As a result, farmers and contractors, regardless of experience level, can easily do important tasks, such as seeding, mechanical weed control, and harvesting.
