Like many farm families, our story begins with making room for potential on the family farm. In 2002, Brett returned home from college looking for an opportunity in agriculture that would provide him the flexibility to farm with his dad and grandpa.
He found the right fit in 2003 with purchasing a local Precision Planting business. The MeterMax stand was set up in the old hog shed on the home farm, and a business was born.
As technology became a larger part of Precision Planting, Brett’s interest in precision agriculture also grew. Ron’s extensive experience in traditional farming, paired with their commitment to incredible customer service, has continued to build a following of growers who recognize value in the solutions offered.
Just as on the farm, recent growth of the business has created the opportunity for more efficiencies and specialized relationships. In 2015, we built our shop, our team grew, and we officially became Johnson Precision, LLC. We could not be more excited about the future of the agriculture industry, and we look forward to working with our growers for many years to come.
360 SOILSCAN™ is a portable soil lab system that gives you the ability to sense the signals your farm is sending. It provides you with zone-specific soil nitrate analysis in about five minutes, so you can make more-accurate and timely nutrient management decisions.
360 UNDERCOVER™ helps you protect crops from late-season disease and insect infestations. It uses multidirectional spray nozzles and slides easily under the canopy so you can target fungicides, insecticides and nutrients exactly where they’re needed. Increasing product efficacy and improving crop health.
360 Y-DROP™ gives you more control over when and where you apply nitrogen to your crops. The unique design allows you to apply late-season nitrogen — even up to tassel.
Consistent depth control is the most important job your planter does. The Keeton firms seeds to the bottom of the trench. It’s that simple for optimum seed-to-soil contact.
AirForce takes information from SeedSense and uses air to automatically increase or decrease the weight on the row unit. So you can ensure proper planting depth and avoid root-stunting sidewall compaction, for all planter types.
SeedSense is the monitor that makes changes that make you money. It gives you everything you need to know about your planter’s performance. Maximize your speed without compromising ride. Reduce compaction and control depth. And most of all, you can see everything you need to know about your planter, in real time.
With YieldSense, you can make better decisions with more accurate yield data that you can trust, wirelessly with FieldView Plus. Multiple machines syncing harvest data as you’re in the fi eld just makes sense. Furthermore, the RemoteView feature means you can see your combines no matter where you are.
The Precision Meter improves your planter’s performance in the meter by holding one seed at a time, then releasing it. See fewer skips and doubles and as a result, higher yield.
The new standard for seeding accuracy and flexibility, you can space precisely and harvest more by dropping a single seed, down the center, every time. It’s simple ingenuity that other meters just don’t have. Plus, you can handle any seed size or shape without adjustment.
Choose higher accuracy, more flexibility and longer life. The vSet vacuum meter system gives you improved singulation and greater seed flexibility. Make constant meter tweaks a thing of the past and see a corresponding hike in yield.
