document Q: Does Ag Leader still sell cotton yield monitoring systems?
Question: Does Ag Leader still sell cotton yield monitoring kits? Answer: Yes. Ag Leader sells the cotton yield monitoring kits for use with the InSight display. The customer will need the kit for the particular stripper/picker, a display cable kit and a GPS receiver. The InSight display will need to be sourced elsewhere as Ag Leader no longer sells the InSight display.  Refer to the Parts Catalog for specific supported models and equipment configurations.

document Q: Which internet browser is optimal for use with CBS?
Question: Which internet browser is optimal for use with Central Business System? Answer: Technical Support has found that while Internet Explorer is the officially supported browser for CBS, other popular browsers with the IE tab add-on are typically more robust.  The Google Chrome IE Tab is a free application available here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ie-tab/hehijbfgiekmjfkfjpbkbammjbdenadd?hl=en-US The Mozilla Firefox IE Tab is a free application available for...

document Q: Are planter drives and the Hydraulic Seed Rate Module supported for section control?
Question: Are planter drives used in conjunction with the HSRM a supported tool for section control? Answer: No. Ag Leader testing has shown that planter drives do not provide adequate performance for section control. The clutch control module, paired with AutoSwath and either point row clutches or section clutches provides the section control on an Ag Leader SeedCommand system.

document Q: Is the GPS 6000 compatible with the RTK Relay Module?
Question: Is the GPS 6000 compatible with the RTK Relay Module? Answer: No. The connection is the same but the GPS 6000 receiver does not have the functionality to be compatible with the RTK Relay Module. The GPS 6500 is the only receiver that will work with the Relay.

document Q: Will I need to replace my 10 section switchbox to work with the ISO Liquid Module?
Question: Will I need to replace my 10 section DirectCommand or SeedCommand switchbox to be compatible with the ISO Liquid Module? Answer: No. The 10 section switchbox will work with the ISO Liquid Module. Currently, the 7 section ISO switchbox is only compatible with ISOBUS, not CAN A.  The 10 section switchbox/Auxiliary Input module will need to be enabled to work over VT, as pictured below:

document Q: Is a nitrogen rich strip needed for OptRx calibration?
Question: Is a nitrogen-rich strip required for calibration?  Answer: N rich strips are not required with the OptRx system. University research and broad scale field testing have proven that nitrogen sufficient areas almost always exist in passes not treated with nitrogen-rich strips. OptRx selects the highest crop vigor readings from the nitrogen sufficient areas and sets them as the reference value during the Virtual Reference Strip scan. This produces the same result as scanning a nitrogen...

document Q: How often do I need to create a Virtual Reference Strip?
Question: How frequently do I need to create a Virtual Reference Strip? Answer: It is best to create a Virtual Reference Strip in every field. It is critical that the application is done with a reference value of the same growth stage. However, a previous field’s reference value may be used in place of creating a new reference value. Selection of previous reference value should be based on crops that are in similar growth stages as the field about to be applied to ensure accurate nitrogen...

document Q: Is OptRx affected by different varieties?
Question: Is OptRx affected by different crop varieties? Answer: There is some affect, but the affect is small enough the recommended rates are not changed to any significant difference. OptRx crop sensors are using wave bands that are in a range that a human eye can not detect (Near Infrared) or are barely visible (Red Edge). When a grower looks at corn plants, the differences between each variety are mostly in shades of green. Since the OptRx sensors are not measuring green reflectance, the...

document Q: How much pre-plant nitrogen should I apply with OptRx?
Question: How much Pre-plant Nitrogen should I use with OptRx? Answer: It is recommended that 1/3 to 1/2 of the total amount of nitrogen that will be applied throughout the entire year is applied to corn at or before planting. The reason is the corn plant determines both kernels per row and number of rows by growth stage V5. Any stress on a plant this early can result in yield losses that cannot be recovered. Therefore, it is best to supply enough nitrogen to sustain the corn plants through V5. Any...

document Q: Why don't I just apply the whole year's worth of nitrogen at pre-plant?
Question: Why don't I just apply the whole year's worth of Nitrogen at pre-plant and not risk stressing the corn plants? Answer: The management of nitrogen can mean the difference between great yields and great losses of profit. If all of the nitrogen that is needed by a plant is applied at or before planting, there is a great risk that the nitrogen will be lost to the environment and not used by the corn plants. Loss of nitrogen in the soil will happen every year due to weather and other variable...

document Q: Does OptRx account for nitrogen available in the soil before side-dressing?
Question: Does OptRx account for nitrogen available in the soil before side-dressing? Answer: Yes. OptRx allows growers to enter known nitrogen credits so the algorithm can take into account the existing nitrogen levels. Nitrogen can come from a previous nitrogen application or organic material in the field. For example, if a plant is growing in a high organic matter soil or a soil that has an abundance of pre-plant nitrogen, the corn plant will typically be a taller healthier looking plant. OptRx...

document Q: What if the low crop vigor in plants is due to a nutrient deficiency other than nitrogen?
Question: What if the low crop vigor in plants is due to a nutrient deficiency other than nitrogen? Answer: If a plant is shorter and has less crop vigor than a reference value plant, OptRx will respond by applying more nitrogen. OptRx is a tool used to help with recommendations on one of the most vital and difficult nutrients to maintain, nitrogen. Other issues such as a lack of potassium, phosphorus, sulfur or even low or high soil PH must be in balance in order for corn to grow optimally and for...

document Q: What if nitrogen is not my limiting factor? Will OptRx detect factors like water or potassium?
Question: OptRx determines plant health, will it tell me plant stress is from water or potassium deficiencies? Answer: There is a possibility that OptRx can incorrectly diagnose an unhealthy plant. Ag Leader recommends that users do regular soil sampling and maintaining agronomic best practices on the other nutrients to the best of their ability. Since nitrogen moves so easily with water and into the air, we are assuming that to be the cause of most variability in the field caused by plant...

document Q: Does dew/water affect the crop sensor readings?
Question: Does dew/standing water affect crop sensor readings? Answer: Yes, it will have a minimal affect. Wait for leaves to dry or perform a separate calibration with wet conditions. Keep an eye on the recommended rates as conditions dry and revert to the dry calibration as soon as possible.
