The latest 1725C planters come factory equipped with a full agronomic suite that includes ExactEmerge™ or MaxEmerge™ 5e row units, pneumatic row cleaners and closing wheels and individual-row hydraulic downforce. The agronomic suite helps improve seed-to-soil contact, crop emergence and can increase the yield potential of the crop that’s planted.
Farmers who want to apply liquid fertilizer in-furrow or off-set while planting can add the optional John Deere ExactRate™ fertilizer system to any 1725C planter. ExactRate provides up to 20% more accurate nutrient placement in a turn compared to non-turn compensating systems.
All 1725C planters include electric drives that provide individual row control versus groups of rows on hydraulic-drive planters, providing more accurate planting population control. Electric-drive planters also reduce maintenance requirements, as they do not have wear parts like chains and sprockets found in hydraulic-driven planters.
The 1725C with CCS features a 55-bushel tank so farmers can plant more acres between refills and finish fields in less time.
On non-CCS 1725C planters, customers can choose a hopper size that best fits their farm. Deere offers a 1.6-bushel hopper for MaxEmerge 5e row units and on Exact Emerge row units (except 30-in rows). A 2.7-bushel hopper is available for Exact Emerge row units, and a 3-bushel hopper is offered for the MaxEmerge 5e.
