Harvest - The time of the year to make the most of every moment

Improve grain quality and reduce loss
Automatically maintain combine settings that you choose with Combine Advisor and ActiveVision Cameras. See how Combine Advisor works.
Document every harvest pass, collecting yield, moisture, and more
View crop yield and moisture on the go during harvest. You can also store and download data as well as create productivity reports to better manage inputs and make more informed management decisions.
Coordinate multiple combines and grain carts in the same field to save time
With Machine Sync, you can create a network between a fleet of tractors and combines. This lets you share coverage map and guidance lines for increased efficiency and complete field coverage when multiple machines are working in the same field. It also automates unloading on-the-go.
Eliminate manual calibration
Save time and increase yield with ActiveYield™. Manual calibrations can take up to 90 minutes, but with ActiveYield, it’s done with no time or effort away from harvest and will save you time every day. Automatic calibrations occur as you’re running, sensing the weight of the grain in the tank as it fills and continually calibrating the yield system, giving you more accurate field mapping.
