CALIBRATION ROUTINE

Materials Needed:

- A scale capable of measuring grams

- Containers capable of capturing insecticide

1.

Select at least 4 rows on the planter, spread equally across the planter. Put a container for collecting

insecticide under the insecticide meter. Insecticide can be collected on as many rows as desired. Increasing

the number of rows increases the accuracy of the calibration.

2.

Start the tractor and turn on the hydraulics.

3.

From the Planter Menu screen, select Settings.

4.

Select Insecticide.

5.

Select the Start button beside the Calibration Routine label.

6.

The insecticide meters will begin to turn.

7.

They will turn 10 revolutions, which will take approximately 60 seconds.

8.

Once all of the meters stop, collect the containers used to collect insecticide.

9.

Place an empty container on the scale and zero the scale.

10.

Dump one of the containers with insecticide in it into the container on the scale.

11.

Record the weight in grams.

12.

Empty the container on the scale and zero the scale again.

13.

Weigh the next sample and repeat this for the remaining containers with insecticide.

14.

Once all the weights are taken, compare the results. If any container contains a lot more or less than the other

containers, check the meter that sample came from for damage or debris. If a meter is found to have an issue,

do not use it in the calibration.

15.

If each sample is approximately the same weight, sum the weight of all containers.

a. Example

i. Row 1 - 126 grams

ii. Row 5 - 123 grams

iii. Row 11 - 126 grams

iv. Row 16 - 125 grams

v. Total = 500 grams

16.

Divide the total weight by the number of samples to get the average.

a. Example

i. 500/4 = 125 grams

17.

Insert the average weight into the following calculation to determine the product density:

w = Average Weight in Grams

d = Product Density in Pounds/Cubic Feet

d = w/2.04

18.

Rout the number to the nearest tenth.

a. Example

i. 125/2.04 = 61.3 lbs/cubic feet

19.

In the Insecticide Settings screen, select the TABLE button beside the Calibration Numbers.

20.

Enter the density in for the insecticide you plan to use.
