It is challenging to know which downforce setting is correct
Incorrect downforce causes yield loss by creating late emerged plants or restricted root growth
DeltaForce gets downforce right with automatic adjustments on every row

Variability- You Have It
Is every area of your field the same? Is each row of your planter in the same environment, or are there differences? Variability in fields exist, from soil type to drainage to moisture, and plant variability exists simply because some rows are near tires and some are not. When setting a downforce airbag or spring, how can a single setting for the field ever be correct? The reality is that it can't always be right, which means that whenever the setting is incorrect for that spot in the field, that seed's yield potential is lost due to too much or too little downforce.

See What Isn't Seen
When there isn't enough weight to maintain depth, late emerged plants are the result and they can easily be seen. But what about when too much downforce is applied? Compaction is created by the gauge wheels, leading to restricted root development and yield loss, but it is only seen by getting a spade in the ground and looking at roots. Fields could be full of yield loss that has never been seen.

Gauge Wheel Weight is the Key
In order for every seed to be at the correct depth and also be placed in an environment free from compaction, the planter needs to measure the amount of weight on the gauge wheels of the planter, and carry that weight consistently. If there is weight on the gauge wheels, then seeds are at depth. If there is not excessive weight on the gauge wheels, then compaction is not occurring. This is more than a one time setting because of the changes in the field, in the planter, and in the environment in general. The gauge wheel weight must be continuously measured and made right.

DeltaForce Solves Variability
DeltaForce replaces the springs or airbags on your current planter with hydraulic cylinders and load cells that measur
