CDS-John Blue Co. is pleased to introduce the new Liquid Blockage Monitor System (LBMS). Now growers can know their liquid application flow from the cab of their tractor. Our patented system shows both low-flow and no-flow problems now. Problems can be corrected immediately before yields are diminished, costing valuable time and money. The CDS-John Blue LBMS uses magnetic sensing technology mounted behind the CDS-John Blue VisaGage II Flow Monitors. The operator is alerted with an audible alarm and visual display when the ball and flow in an individual row has dropped below a selected level. A flashing LED light will highlight each row with a distribution problem. The wireless Premium System will also display high flow for broken lines.

One of the most important components in a corn head is the quality and performance of the stalk rolls. The Calmer BT Chopper stalk rolls have a revolving window in combination with 10 razor-sharp knives. The result is that the stalk stays vertical by being received in the feeding chamber (window), and engages with the 10 razor-sharp blades. These blades turn your tough Bt stalks into small, chopped, cut, shredded and sheared residue that will decompose more quickly. Available as an upgrade on JD 40, 90, 600, CNH 2200, 2400, 96c, 98c, 996 series corn heads, and all new Calmer-manufactured corn heads.

Featuring the FX-318 Blue Grass Edition Rotary Cutter. To be introduced at the National Farm Machinery Show, this mulching cutter was specially designed for the thoroughbred horse farm market but can be used wherever you need a consistent, even cut without windrowing.

It’s 18 feet wide compared to the 15-foot competitive mowers with same Horsepower, letting you cut more with the same number of passes. It was tested last year at Keeneland Horse Track in Lexington, Ky., home of the 2015 Breeder’s Cup. An ultra-narrow transport width makes moving this unit extremely safe and simple. The easy-clean 7-gauge domed deck sheds water and debris, increasing deck life.

Compared to traditional seed firmer technology, Flo-Rite seed firmers offer a revolutionary design with better seed-to-soil contact, resulting in quicker emergence. The firmers feature a durable, high-tech memory polymer that provides more consistent down pressure; a replaceable wear plate that reduces maintenance costs; and an enclosed stainless steel liquid tube. Flo-Rite seed firmers gently push the seed securely into the bottom of the seed trench, improving seed-to-soil contact. This practice improves planting-depth consistency, leading to better seed germination, more consistent emergence, better stands and more yield. Studies show that even stands can increase yield by more than 5%.
