Ag Leader’s high-speed planting system SureSpeed is to serve row crop farmers with accurate seed placement at speeds up to 12 miles per hour.
Ag Leader announced its high-speed planting system SureSpeed, to serve row crop farmers with accurate seed placement at speeds up to 12 miles per hour. The meter with integrated delivery system was developed in collaboration with Kinze Manufacturing. Introduction is planned for the 2021 planting season through each company’s respective dealer networks.
The SureSpeed planting system was created with accuracy of seed placement in mind at all speeds from 3 to 12 mph. “Many factors can influence planting speed, and when conditions are right to speed up, farmers don’t want to be limited by their ability to accurately place seeds in the ground. The system is designed to accommodate the need of the farmer at any speed without giving up proper seed placement,” says Ag Leader.
Meter orientation on the row unit allows seed to move seamlessly between the meter and delivery system resulting in accurate seed placement. Additionally, the meter was designed to handle a variety of seed shapes and sizes accurately and without singulator adjustments for hassle-free planting.

The SureSpeed planting system is controlled by Ag Leader’s display, InCommand 1200. The InCommand 1200 display provides a window into your planter to view individual row detail with side-by-side planting performance maps.
Additionally, InCommand displays help farmers stay connected by instantly sharing live maps, autoswath coverage, guidance lines and more to other displays. With InCommand farmers can view live or historical field maps and summaries from a phone or tablet anytime, anywhere.
