Preparation and Setup
Refer to Figure 19
The standard DICKEY-john
PM300 system monitors
the following elements of a YP4-6-825A3P planter:
• Seeds at each row unit seed tube.
• Ground speed.
Refer to the DICKEY-john
Operator’s Manual for monitor operations.
After installation, and prior to first field use, the monitor
must be setup with the row spacing and speed sensor
constant, as well as your preferences for information
display. Row count is auto-assigned, but any other
factory defaults are not likely to be correct for your
Row spacing data may be found in the Appendix.
For speed setup, Great Plains recommends using the
400-foot calibration described in the DICKEY-john
manual, rather than using a theoretical “# of pulses”.
Perform the calibration run in representative field
conditions, as soil conditions, surface looseness and
other tillage practices can cause variations in the
effective rolling radius of the ground drive wheel.
Prior to each planting session, set any desired limits for
speed and population for the current crop.
