Action Required! Update SteerCommand, OnTrac3, GeoSteer and ParaDyme Firmware!

GPS time is based on number of weeks since the beginning of GPS time (January 06, 1980) and number of seconds since the beginning of each week. The maximum number of weeks capable in GPS time is 1024 so it must reset back to 0.

In April 2019, GPS time will experience a week rollover which means completion of week 1023. During this time, week number will roll back to 0 and start week count over. This firmware upgrade handles the week rollover to keep time on the correct year. Since ParaDyme and GeoSteer feature codes are time dependent, it is critical this update is performed, or feature codes may be lost. SteerCommands and OnTrac3’s also need to be on current firmware to function after April 1st.

By Barry Anderson, Ag Leader

Hybrids that are available today have great yield potential and provide the basis for tolerance to cold stress, but poorly planted seed never reaches its potential yield due to the fact the environmental factors can still reduce stand. Many growers resist planting early because the soils are too cool for emergence, however planting as early as possible helps the corn plant maximize its yield potential by utilizing more of the growing season.
