Air Seeder Monitoring Systems 

All Gason Air Seeders come equipped with in-cab monitoring systems, keeping the driver up-to-date with operating status. Turn individual bins on or off, and change application rates while on the move.

Owners can choose from several monitor makes and models depending on preference or to complement existing farm equipment. 

Ground drive monitors display metershaft speeds, fan speed, air pressure, area sown and seeder ground speed. 

The hydraulic drive VRT seeder range can be fully controlled from the cab’s monitor following calibration. Most VRT monitors on offer also accept prepared variable rate prescription maps to allow automatic variation of seed and fertiliser application.  

Farmscan 7500 (standard VRT monitor supplied)

The Farmscan 7500 monitor and control unipod is the standard monitor of choice for the Gason VRT Seeder Range. It is accurate, easy to use, compact and loaded with useful features. 

With a high quality, bright, colour touch screen with variable display layouts, the Farmscan 7500 accepts variable rate application maps with a USB port for loading and transferring data.

Customers also receive a Farmscan Ag 1020 Head Blockage Monitor with one head blockage sensor at no extra cost. Further head sensors can be purchased at any time.

Topcon X35

The Topcon X350 monitor is a powerful all-in-one console that is capable of multiple tasks. It can be used as a 2cm RTK auto steer console and has several software options to control and monitor Air Seeder, Sprayer and Spreader functions. 

Expanding on the success of the X30, the X35 has the latest in touch screen technology and a variety of add-on options available, including a comprehensive data manager software package. 

Trimble Field IQ (monitor not supplied)

The Trimble FMX / FM-1000 monitor is a fully integrated, full featured guidance display that allows the operator to control both automated steering functions and Seeder control. Designed and developed in the Unites States, the Trimble monitor is used by tractor manufacturers as a high-end auto steer option. 

Gason is a Trimble Ready accredited Original Equipment Manufacturer. We can supply a Trimble Ready Air Seeder, fully tested and ready for connection to the back of the tractor. We are not able to supply the actual monitor or looms that are fitted to the tractor. Your dealer will need to work with their local Trimble supplier to complete the connection process. 

John Deere Dry Rate Controller (monitor not supplied)

For customers with a GS3 2630 display on their John Deere tractor, the John Deere Dry Rate Controller ready option may be the best way to achieve less clutter in the cab, combining all tractor and sowing functions in one package. 

If ordered, Gason will fit and test the dealer supplied John Deere components to your Air Seeder, ensuring flawless operation before the unit leaves the factory. John Deere owners can maximise efficiency by using the existing tractor display and functions, including variable rate application when combined with JD Apex Farm Management Software.
