John Deere Implements the Harvest Identification

In order to help cotton growers capture, store and retrieve information about their crop for use by the gin, John Deere has implemented the Harvest Identification. The system gets rid of the manual module – tagging method, provides easy - to – retrieve and store documentation and improves the way of tracking and delivery of the modules to the gin.
Harvest Identification has already been used with the John Deere 7760 Self-Propelled Cotton Picker, equipped with a Green StarTM 2 2600 or GreenStar TM 3 2630 Display and RFID tags embedded in the round module wrap. The system documents module information relevant to the ginning process, including the client, farm, field, module serial number, harvest date and time: all collected in a one document. Cotton, the implemented system, reads the RFID serial numbers that are embedded in the module wrap and then transfers the information to the Application Controller 1120. The device collects the information and at the same time displays the module count and the serial number, storing the information simultaneously as a .txt file within the File Server on the display. Has the information been collected, it can be pulled off the display via data card or USB drive and then sent to the cotton gin.
The above solution gives the growers the ability to harvest cotton uninterrupted, without the necessity to tag modules manually. Growers who have tried the system so far say that it helps them to save time and simplifies the record keeping and tracking of modules.
