Advanced tillage depth and pressure control, TruSet, available on John Deere 2730 Combination Ripper

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest New feature eliminates manual adjustments, improves tillage performanceMaking it easier for customers to perform tillage adjustments with the push of a button, John Deere introduces TruSet. This industry-exclusive technology enables users to independently adjust depth or pressure settings for each operation on their 2730 Combination Ripper from the cab, on-the-go, for maximum agronomic results.“As conditions change throughout the field, operators running the 2730 with TruSet can quickly and efficiently respond to varying soils, compacted areas, heavier residue, and moisture,” says Nathan Kramer, product marketing manager for John Deere. “Making customized adjustments that respond to these agronomic factors help customers maximize their yield potential.”With TruSet, operators can adjust depth settings for their disks, rippers, and closing disks on the 2730 Ripper along with pressure settings for the active hydraulic rolling baskets. These adjustments are made in cab from the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display that also provides users with real-time data for their actual tillage settings.“In just six seconds, TruSet operators can adjust depth and pressure settings from the cab while continuing to cover acres,” says Kramer. “That’s up to 200 times faster than conventional, manual adjustments with single-point depth control and cylinder stops”Operators no longer have to sacrifice machine performance by deciding to forgo manual adjustments throughout the field. At the touch of a button, TruSet users can quickly respond to changing conditions such as running deeper over end rows or working shallower on hilltops and lighter soils.TruSet’s four memory set points allow operators to save settings for their most common field conditions. Operators can also make adjustments on the display to achieve their desired field finish.According to Kramer, TruSet provides operators with a high level of precision. “With a working tillage width of up to 26 feet on the 2730, consistent tillage performance can be easily obtained from front to back across all four functional areas of this machine.” He adds, “Once the actual set point is validated and configured to the display in the cab, operators are able to make independent adjustments to the disks, rippers, or closing disks with extreme accuracy, up to one-tenth of an inch.”For more information on the TruSet feature with the 2730 Combination Ripper, see your local John Deere dealer or visit www.JohnDeere.com/Ag.last_img read more

Pocari Sweat: Dynasty rising

Cayetano to unmask people behind ‘smear campaign’ vs him, SEA Games “If Myla decided to shut down for the rest of the conference, we wouldn’t have won the title,” says Ty, who retired as team manager recently. “She just proved that she’s our franchise player.”American import Krystal Rivers, a cancer surivor, proved almost unstoppable in the finals, while Michelle Strizak played solid throughout the tournament. Everyone in coach Rommel Abella’s squad did more than her share to clinch a third straight championship for Pocari Sweat, starting with the Shakey’s V-League Open and Reinforced Conferences last year.“We were in a pretty bad shape at the start of the tournament,” says Ty. “Players were injured probably because we started preparing as early as January. We were in a state of flux.”The level of competition in the PVL had also gone up with teams raring to come up with a creditable showing in the first tournament since the switch from the Shakey’s V-League. “In terms of parity in the lineups, this was one of the most competitive tournaments we played in,” says Ty.Abella also praised Gyzelle Sy and Melissa Gohing in their title run. “They were great all throughout the conference and they held the team together,” he says. “In all the adversities that we faced, they stepped up and provided the leadership the team needed.”ADVERTISEMENT Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games View comments In the end, this turned out to be the toughest and sweetest championship yet for the Lady Warriors, whose move from the Philippine Superliga to the established PVL raised plenty of eyebrows.Nonetheless, the club owned by Federated Distributors Inc. has come a long way from a last-place finish in its debut in the PSL in 2014. That windup by the squad, then known as Mane ’N Tail, proved to be an eye-opener for management which decided to come up with a 15-year plan in an effort to make its mark in the volleyball scene.“Our goal was not just to win championships, but also to supply the national team with players,” says Ty. Three years after the plan was hatched, the Lady Warriors have emerged as one of the most successful clubs in the PVL.The club then known as Philips Gold placed third twice in the PSL, behind the efforts of Pablo, Gohing and Michelle Gumabao, who is no longer with the team. Their three straight titles are a record in the PVL, organized by Sports Vision.“You have to go way back to the time when we were still called Mane ’N Tail and were given just a few hours to decide on having a franchise,” says Ty. “But we didn’t want to be known as a losing team, that’s why we invested in a long-term plan.”The signing of Pablo to a long-term contract was the biggest indication of Pocari’s commitment to winning. “We try to build a team and that has given us an edge because our core is intact and we’ve jelled,” says Ty, reflecting on their success. “We have a family atmosphere. Everyone looks after each other. We have players who at one point were team captains in other clubs. But they’ve set aside egos to work together for a common goal.”As the club looks ahead to the next PVL conference, key pieces will be added to shore up the lineup. But with resilience, toughness and commitment to winning ingrained in the squad’s DNA over the years, there’s no reason to doubt Pocari’s abilities to collect more crowns. And who knows, the next title celebration won’t just be in Boracay.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next While reinforcements later came to beef up the squad, Pablo remained its heart and soul.

Pilot for NIDS in January 2019

first_img The NIDS, which is being facilitated under the National Identification and Registration Bill, will provide a comprehensive and secure structure to enable the capture and storage of identity information for all Jamaicans. Story Highlights Roll-out of the National Identification System (NIDS) is slated to begin with a pilot project in January 2019, focusing on civil servants. Explaining how enrolment in the system will work, Programme Director for NIDS, Warren Vernon, said persons, as prescribed by law, will be required to give their full name, date of birth and biometric information, which includes fingerprints, facial image and a manual signature. Roll-out of the National Identification System (NIDS) is slated to begin with a pilot project in January 2019, focusing on civil servants.This was disclosed by Acting Chief Technical Director in the Office of the Prime Minister, Jacqueline Lynch-Stewart, who noted that it is a deliberate move to use this wide cross section of individuals who would provide “a good feel of how to enrol people islandwide”.“Public-sector employees are also a good reflection of our communities… so we felt it was a (suitable strategy to work with this cohort for the pilot),” Mrs. Lynch-Stewart said during a press conference at Jamaica House on Tuesday (November 14).The NIDS, which is being facilitated under the National Identification and Registration Bill, will provide a comprehensive and secure structure to enable the capture and storage of identity information for all Jamaicans.Under the system, each citizen will be provided with a randomised nine-digit National Identification Number (NIN), which they will have for life.Explaining how enrolment in the system will work, Programme Director for NIDS, Warren Vernon, said persons, as prescribed by law, will be required to give their full name, date of birth and biometric information, which includes fingerprints, facial image and a manual signature.“Upon registration at the registration centre, you will go through a very rigorous assessment or verification process to ensure that the data is… clean and that the content of what we are recording is, in fact, unique to that individual,” he said.The National Identification and Registration Bill was passed in the Senate on Monday (November 13) with 168 amendments, and was returned to the House of Representatives today (November 14) for approval.With anticipated funding of US$68 million from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Government intends to put the NIDS infrastructure and systems in place over the next 12 months, beginning with the pilot project.This is expected to be followed by the national roll-out in September 2019, over a period of three to four years.The layered roll-out and management of the NIDS will be handled by a new agency, the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), which will replace the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) and provide more enhanced services.last_img read more

Wait — no, I’m not.
