Newest Dealer of PRECISION DRONE

Posted by on 13 August 2014 | 0 Comments


LONDON, OHIO - August 13, 2014 J D Equipment, the largest John Deere dealership group in Ohio has entered into an agreement with Precision Drone LLC to sell helicopter-style drones (hexacopters) to agricultural customers. The dones will permit customers to visually inspect field and crop conditions and permit customers to more efficiently manage their farming operations. The data collected by drones supports total precision agriculture by observing, measuring and responding to varying crop conditions, providing information to improve crop yields.
“J D Equipment is working to serve our customers both now and in the futures and we continue to support technology improvements which benefit our customers”, according to Jeff Mitchell, CEO of J D Equipment. “We constantly look for opportunities to bring value to our customers and help improve their farming operations. We have a dedicated staff of trained technology professionals and have invested in a robust network of guidance towers to support our customers.”
Using this latest technology can increase crop yields while decreasing the costs associated with walking fields or airplane fly overs. With Precision Vision™ imaging systems, farmers can view video showing the health of their crops without even leaving their home. The benefits of drones in farming include: increase of yields, time, return on investment, ease of use, integrated GIS mapping, crop health imaging and failsafe (drone flies home).
A live demonstration of this technology will be on display at the Fifth Annual World’s Largest Combine Clinic which is being held at J D Equipment’s London, Ohio facility on August 22, 2014. For more information on Precision Drone or to sign up and attend the Combine Clinic, please visit or download the J D Equipment App from the Apple or Android market place or call J D Equipment at 866-389-5458.

JD Equipment is proud to announce that our RTK network has expanded we are now serving 4,638,720 acres of coverage (16 bases each covering an approximate 12 mile radius). Real Time Kinematic (RTK) Satelite Navigation by definition is is a technique used to enhance the precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems, being usable in conjunction with GPS, GLONASS and/or Galileo. It uses measurements of the phase of the signal′s carrier wave, rather than the information content of the signal, and relies on a single reference station to provide real-time corrections, providing up to centimetre-level accuracy. With reference to GPS in particular, the system is commonly referred to as Carrier-Phase Enhancement, or CPGPS. It has application in land survey and in hydrographic survey. This program gives our farmers sub inch planting and harvesting abilities. Contact any of our eight area J.D. Equipment locations to find out how RTK can improve your operation today!
