John Deere active pneumatic downforce makes getting the planting accuracy desired even easier. A hydraulically driven compressor works with the SeedStar™ 3 HP system and SeedStar XP system to automate downforce control. Just set the row-unit target margin value and the active pneumatic downforce system works automatically to make sure the planter maintains this value-achieving precise soil penetration, and consistent planting depth without sidewall soil compaction. This frees the operator from constantly making manual downforce adjustments as conditions change. It also allows the operator to focus on all the other planting factors that drive up yields, like seed singulation and spacing.
 
This system also offers a split rank control feature for split-row planters. On top of actively controlling the pneumatic downforce system across the planter, John Deere active downforce will control the front and rear rows of split-row planter independently. This compensates for differing downforce requirements between the ranks and will help maintain an accurate planting depth and consistent margin across all the rows.
Single-rank planters such as the 1770NT, 1790 24Row20, and Deere Bauer Planters except for the DB60 47Row15 require a compressor assembly and hydraulic hose kit to complete the field conversion. The 1790 and DB60 47Row15 Split-Row Planters require the compressor with split rank control, hydraulic hose kit, and the PDF hose kit for split rank control. Additional components maybe needed depending on model year.
