By delivering bands of water directly to the base of the plant, 360 RAIN provides advantages over traditional irrigation methods. With a 60-foot boom (24 rows), 360 RAIN applies water through Y-DROP style hoses. Up to 2,900 feet of 3-inch diameter hose is dispense by a computer-controlled reel. The machine moves up and down the crop rows as the well-tethered reel dispenses and retrieves hose. At 0.45 mph, 360 RAIN can apply over 2,000,000 gallons of water per week – the equivalent of one inch of rain over an 80-acre field from a well producing just 215 gallons per minute. And then start again. And again. Providing the three or four inches of critical moisture that activates soil microbes, enhances grain fill and allows plants to thrive.
360 YIELD SAVER cuts header loss up to 85%. Poly blocks and intermeshing bristles reduce loss two ways: by cushioning the ear’s impact- reducing butt shelling – and by capturing kernels.
Angled bristles fit together in a way that allows for more kernel capture.
360 YIELD SAVER consists of a traditional-style gathering chain with crop lugs and replaceable brush blocks. Blocks quickly snap and screw into position and are easily replaced at the end of the harvest season.
A corn head is a harsh environment, but 360 YIELD SAVER is built to withstand the abuse. Even when brushes show some wear, they are still delivering stray kernels and nubbins to the cross auger. Average brush block life is over 150 acres per row. Wear life of the 360 YIELD SAVER chain is a very similar to traditional gathering chains.
New liquid nitrogen tanks from 360 Yield Center deliver the things you need for an efficient on-planter nitrogen system: weight balance, capacity, visibility, and accessibility.
These sleek 700-gallon capacity tanks follow the contour of your John Deere 8000R tractor – providing improved front and side visibility compared to other mid-mount and front mount tanks. And the unique shape and mount positions provide better fore and aft weight distribution – to minimize pinch-row compaction. And, unlike most mid-mount tanks, the 360 liquid nitrogen tanks do not increase transport width.
In today’s tight market, managing input costs is critical. Nitrogen is typically the second most expensive input. Getting the most efficiency out of this investment is critical. Lowering nitrogen use efficiency from 1.0 to 0.7 can have a huge impact on profitability.
360 Y-DROP lets you wait for your final application so you can adjust rates to match the crop’s needs. Wet. Dry. Ideal. You supply only what the plants need – protecting yield potential and reducing overall nitrogen costs.
Fast residue breakdown boosts nutrient availability for next spring’s crop. 360 CHAINROLL creates “chains” of seven-inch stalks – ideal for rapid breakdown. Plus, they’re the perfect length for row cleaners to remove residue from the seed trench.
Tests show a 2.5-bushel yield bump from better ear count and even germination compared to confetti-style chopping stalk rolls. It’s a simple, profitable upgrade for Deere corn heads.
