Summers Manufacturing, Devils Lake, N.D., has introduced narrow transport Diamond Disks, available with 28.5-foot cutting widths. The disks have residue management with the capability to fold to 15.5 feet wide for transport on narrow roads. The configuration of the disk gangs allows the unit to float over rocks without damage, and it also eliminates ridging, skipping and gouging effects. Other features include a floating hitch to prevent side draft and ensure consistent depth control. The units are equipped with C-shanks and ductile cast spools to absorb shocks and maximize the service life of the implement. Blade options are available for the blades, which have a 26- and 25-inch diameter. For more information, call 800-732-4392, or visit www.summersmfg.com.


Vermeer Corporation, Pella, Iowa, has introduced three mower conditioners—MC2800, MC3300 and MC 3700. The modular, shaft-driven Q3 cutter bar makes the line more fuel efficient with minimal gear-to-gear interface, requiring less horsepower than gear bed style cutter bars. The tasks of changing blades and repairing a sheared device was made simple. The mower conditioners are equipped with a nitrogen-charged accumulator suspension system to provide a consistent weight on the cutter bar throughout the range of motion. Operators can customize suspension settings for specific field conditions. The three lines range in cutting width from 9.1 to 12 feet.

West Nile app tool introduced

With a West Nile Innovator app available from Zoetis, Florham Park, N.J., horse owners can now use an Equine Encephalomyelitis Calculator to evaluate the economic risk and expense of not vaccinating against certain mosquito-borne illnesses.

Its customizable calculator allows horse owners to estimate the risks and costs associated with certain mosquito-borne viral diseases. The calculator predicts that, if left unvaccinated, a horse can have up to a 12.9 percent risk of clinical disease if West Nile virus affects the premises or barn.

Unvaccinated horses can be at serious risk of contracting diseases, particularly mosquito-borne illnesses, even in areas where the disease may not be common.

Company offers low-cost solar solution for weather reporting

San Francisco-based Davis Instruments has unveiled Vantage Connect, a low-cost, solar-powered cellular solution for reporting real-time weather conditions on farms, ranches, orchards and outdoor nurseries.

Designed to provide weather data from remote locations, Vantage Connect helps agriculture professionals receive microclimate data from any place with cellular coverage that lacks power or a person to monitor the weather. Weather data is uploaded to the web every five, 15 or 60 minutes, and is accessible via smartphone, tablet or personal computer. Alarms alert growers and ranchers to changing conditions, sending data from the field the moment the change occurs.

This enables ag managers to identify and manage potential problems, including those resulting from frost or freezing conditions, extreme heat, high winds and/or heavy rain. For field managers, Vantage Connect offers weather data that can help keep employees safe during field work.

Vantage Connect does not require an external power source and uses the cellular network to transmit weather data to the internet. Vantage Connect can be paired with any of Davis’ integrated sensor suites or special purpose stations to create a remote, location specific, stand-alone weather station.

For more information, call 800-678-3669, or visit www.davisnet.com.

Grain cart data can be managed with firm's system

Unverferth Manufacturing Company, Inc., Kalida, Ohio, has introduced the UHarvest data management system for collecting and managing grain cart weight data using the tractor’s ISOBUS terminal or a touch-screen tablet.

Grain carts equipped with load cells are the traditional way to accumulate harvest data. The Unverferth UHarvest data management system, powered by Raven Industries, Sioux Falls, S.D., combines software that allows the user to track and analyze as much harvest data as needed with a touchscreen operation. The touch-screen interface tracks the farm and field information as well as crop, variety, truck identification and destination of every bushel that moves through the grain cart. The UHarvest system’s AccuSave technology also features a drivetrain sensor attached to the cart for automatically recording each load for data accuracy without the need for operator intervention.

The UHarvest system offers installation on any grain cart equipped with scales. Its electronic control unit attaches to the grain cart and connects to the scale load-cells. The processor plugs into the existing tractor ISOBUS connection and is ready to operate. For tablet operation, the UHarvest processor’s built-in WiFi signal provides a secure connection and connectivity that allows others within a 400-foot radius of the processor to view the grain cart’s information via password-protected access using a tablet computer or smartphone. Availability of the new system is slated for 2014.
