All Seed Types Planter Sensor

Hy Rate Plus Population Sensor


The Hy Rate Plus™ Population Sensor is the sensor of choice for all seed types regardless of size and shape. From larger seeds such as corn to small seeds like canola, the Hy Rate Plus seed sensor accurately counts seeding population during planting, providing confidence that your row units are working properly, and seeds are being placed for optimum yield potential. Utilizing a proprietary software algorithm, the sensor quickly learns what seed type is being planted and adjusts its detection sensitivity accordingly. This provides for better seed counting accuracy across the widest range of seed sizes. The sensor also automatically adjusts detection sensitivity in dusty conditions. This allows the sensor to effectively distinguish seeds from dirt, dust and debris which results in better counting accuracy even on windy days.

Features and Benefits:

  • Accurately monitors seeding rates between 1–135 seeds/sec across multiple seed types for uncompromised accuracy 
  • Ability to distinguish doubles, triples and quad seed drops to maintain accurate population count 
  • Compensates for the effect of wind and dust allowing you to plant on windy days 
  • Utilizes a uniform light field with virtually zero dead zones in the seed tube, eliminating false skips 
  • Field programmable for software improvements and upgrades 
  • Informs operator when adjustments are required to maintain optimum planter performance with per-row data (% Singulation, % Multiples, % Skips, Spacing Quality) when utilizing the IntelliAg Working Set Member 2 (WSMB2) seed singulation module 
  • Uses a 3-Pin Weather Pak connector for direct connection to existing planter row harnessing 
  • Compatible with existing DICKEY-john PM series planter monitors, IntelliAg AI series controllers and the IntelliAg MVT
