John Deere Planter Meter Calibration



John Deere Planter Row Meter Calibration

Meter calibration is the first step toward spacing perfection. We can use this diagnostic tool to evaluate the performance of your vac, air and finger meters. Worn parts? Large seed? Variable seed sizes? Seed coatings? Questions about optimum speed? The test stand answers all of these questions.


Your John Deere Technician can fine tune your meters to gain 2, 3 or 4 percent improvement in singulation. Based on our testing, for every one percent improvement in placement accuracy, you have the potential to earn an additional $5 per acre.


The Calibration System

How do you know how well your meters are running?

The system is a simple way to measure the ability of your meter to singulate seed. We mount your meter in the stand, fill it with the type and size of seed you plan to plant, and then record the performance based on your population and planting speeds.

Put your meters on our stand and get precise seed spacing.
Clean, replace worn parts and properly balance the meter. Place a finger pickup or vacuum meter onto the stand.

Add the specific seed size and weight corn that you intend to plant.

Set the Test Stand speed gauge to your planting speed.
Count the meter errors using advanced sensor technology.
Adjust the meter and retest until you've eliminated all meter errors.
