Submitted by Adam Grillot on Mon, 04/29/2024 - 12:44pm

In this edition of Tech Talk, we’ll be discussing how to effectively manage your product list using John Deere Operations Center. Setting up your products in advance can save you significant time in the field and ensure the accuracy of your records.

Navigating the Setup

To begin, navigate to the 'Setup' tab at the top menu and scroll down to 'Products'. Here, you will find seed varieties, chemicals, fertilizers, and even spray tank mixes.

Managing Seed Varieties

If you're not planning to plant certain seed varieties this year, simply checkmark them and select 'Archive' in the top right corner to remove these from your list. Adding new varieties is just as easy - click the 'Add' button in the top right, select 'Products', and search for your desired items in the John Deere database. If you can't find what you're looking for, you have the option to add a custom product.

Managing Chemicals

The process for managing chemicals is very similar. You can go through your list, archiving what you don't need and adding new products as necessary.

Setting Up Spray Tank Mixes

For those who handle their own spraying, setting up spray tank mixes ahead of time is extremely beneficial. You can add a new tank mix, select a name for it, specify the target crop and overall application rate, and then choose products from your list. Remember to add these products before setting your tank mixes. For instance, if you wanted to add Roundup, you could find it in the product list, save it, and then begin adding it to your tank mix, specifying the application rate for each product. A maximum of six products can be added to a tank mix for a 2630 display, and up to 20 products for a Gen four or Gen five display.

Saving and Syncing

Once you're done, click 'Save tank mix'. We highly recommend turning on data syncing if you're using a Gen 4 or Gen 5 display. This ensures that all your changes will automatically sync to your displays in real time.
