ARE YOU AN AG LEADER?
Ag Leader helped pioneer the precision farming industry with the Yield Monitor 2000,
the first widely adopted and successful piece of precision farming equipment. In the time
since the arrival of the yield monitor, the industry has seen rapid advances. And, as we
move into the middle of the 2010s, Ag Leader is still renowned for its line of cutting-edge
products that help growers achieve at a higher level year-round.
But don’t just take my word for it. Reach out to folks in the ag community whose opinions
you value and ask about Ag Leader. I’m confident you’ll hear some very positive things
about our company.
In asking around, you might hear how Ag Leader is an independent company. We aren’t
tied to a major farm equipment or seed corporation. This independent spirit allows us to
build inclusive products that work with any color of equipment.

OptRx ®
YOUR CROPS ARE
TALKING. ARE
YOU LISTENING?
Nitrogen needs can fluctuate substantially within a field. Using light reflectance, OptRx looks directly to the
plant for critical information. By accurately measuring the health of the crop, you can apply nitrogen right
where it’s needed.
Implementing sensor technology into your nitrogen management program provides a proven method of
achieving gains in profitability across all side-dressed and top-dressed acres – season after season – allowing
you to easily and effectively capture lost yield by responding to field variability in real time.
• Capitalize on the variability that exists due to changing weather and soil conditions.
• Invest more nitrogen in regions that will respond favorably and apply less in regions that are nitrogen-rich.
• Achieve higher yields by responding to plant stress undetected by the human eye.
• Generate and implement a variable rate nitrogen prescription that adapts to ever year’s unique conditions, without
paying a per-acre fee.
• Compensate for variability of in-field nitrogen caused by fluctuating concentrations of nitrogen in manure, as well as
limitations associated with manure spreading equipment.
• See the potential of as much as a 10 bu/acre benefit by fine-tuning your nitrogen program.

STOP GUESSING. START MEASURING.
OptRx changes the nitrogen game from an educated guess to a sophisticated strategy based on measured
plant needs, the user’s preference and their existing nitrogen program. In the map below, red and yellow
coloring indicates nitrogen deficient areas. OptRx then works with DirectCommand™ to control variable
rate application, ensuring the correct balance of nitrogen is distributed appropriately throughout the field.
Additionally, you can use OptRx to apply any chemical on any crop by creating your own prescriptions using
the rate table.

Yield Monitoring
THE INDUSTRY
STANDARD
The original is still the most trusted. That’s why Ag Leader’s system is the most widely used grain yield
monitoring technology in the world. Create and view yield and moisture maps in real-time while harvesting
and instantly observe how field conditions affect yield. With the variety of information collected, you’ll be able
to use each harvest season’s data to improve your yield results year after year.
Additionally, the moisture readings collected as crops are harvested give you the ability to plan and manage
grain storage options while still in the cab.
• View yield and moisture maps in real-time for instant feedback on performance.
• Overlay planting maps with real-time harvest maps to view instant variations by hybrid/variety in the field.
• AutoSwath™ for harvest provides accurate data when harvesting point rows and partial swaths.
• At-a-glance information provided by harvest summary screen shows number of acres harvested, total and average
bushels and more.
• Decide how to store your grain based on moisture readings in the field.
• Improve seed selections based on yield data over multiple years.
2015 Ag Leader
| 26
Harvest
HOW IT WORKS:
Grain is fed into the harvester’s elevator where sensors
read the moisture content of the grain.
As the grain is delivered to the holding tank, the mass
flow sensor monitors yield.
Information on both yield and moisture from the
sensors is recorded by the Ag Leader® Integra or
Versa™ display mounted in the cab.
The Result:

Intellislope®
DO-IT-YOURSELF
TILE INSTALLATION
Water management is a critical component to maximizing yields and productivity. The decision to install an
adequate drainage system will provide the largest and fastest return on investment in your operation. Intellislope
makes it possible for practically any farmer to install their own tile using their own equipment, while achieving
professional results.
The one-time investment in drainage tile can benefit the farmer for years to come in a variety of ways.
• Increase all field-activity windows from pre-plant land preparation to post-harvest operations.
• Reduce soil compaction by removing gravitational water faster.
• Minimize the loss of nitrogen as a result of denitrification due to poor drainage.
• Enhance healthy root development in early wet seasons to better sustain the crop in dry seasons.
• Promote rapid soil warming for earlier planting windows and better crop development.
• Improve land value and overall productivity.
Promote Root Development
2015 Ag Leader
Well-drained soils encourage deeper root
development and healthier crops.
Saturated soils lead to shallow root growth and poor
plant development.
| 28
Water Management
INSTALLING TILE IS EASY AS 1, 2, 3.
The Intellislope® tile plow control system makes
installing tile easy, eliminating the need for
complicated laser surveying equipment. If you
can drive a tractor, you can install drainage tile
with Intellislope.
1
SURVEY
Can be done ahead of time with an ATV, or at the time
of installation with the tile plow utilizing RTK GPS (see
page 13 for more information). Collect surveys by
driving over the path where tile needs to be placed to
collect the surface elevation.
2
PLAN
Enter the desired minimum/maximum target depths, as
well as the minimum grade to drain excess water from
the field. This can be done in the field or with the SMS™
Advanced Water Management Module (see page 30 for
more information).
3
INSTALL
Use the plan you created to install tile using AutoTile® to
adjust the depth of the plow automatically. You can also
use Grade or Pitch control to manually adjust the plow.

Manage the water in your fields with the same precision you manage the rest of your
resources. SMS™ Water Management Module allows you to strategically design field
tile plans based on precise supporting RTK topography layers. Once the tile plan is
designed, SMS will validate plans to ensure the desired drainage level is achievable.
Importing survey and installed tile data from the Ag Leader® Integra display to SMS
Software provides a seamless way to manage and track improvements in crop yield
where tile has been installed.
• Create ideal field tiling plans without the difficulty of manual calculations.
• Easily validate that tile runs are sized appropriately to meet drainage capacities.
• Export premade tile plans to field display for efficient in-field installation.
• Share tile plans with others using mapping programs like Google Earth™ mapping service.
• Edit, move and expand existing tile runs to create an updated tile plan.
• Ensure proper tile sizing using the Drainage Coefficient tool.
• Convert previous tile installations and export to display for reference.
• Create the best field tile plan by comparing multiple installation plans for cost and
drainage efficiency.
• Module checks for and displays minimum tile size needed.
• Velocity failsafe ensures tile is laid on a grade appropriate for the soil texture at the
intended depth.

We understand that smart management decisions are a must in your precision
farming operation. And, because you may have data from different systems and
sources, we aim to support as many data types as possible. SMS was developed
with this in mind, so you can make well-informed decisions based on all your
data. Whether the data is from planting, fertilizing, spraying, harvest or guidance,
SMS can house and organize all of it for easy access.
• Organize, plan and manage field operations.
• View and print maps, reports and operation summaries.
• Layer maps of field applications (tillage, planting, spraying, harvest, etc).
• Create reports and maps that can be used to satisfy government reporting and
regulatory compliance for application documentation.
• Track and store multi-year trends in your fields.
• Analyze data to determine areas of improvement and make more profitable decisions.
• Easily track operational expenses and income, which can be included in financial
reports and print layouts.
