Just what you needed! The "World’s Largest Planter: John Deere’s DB120" (from cornAndSoybeanDigest.com):

Depending on field conditions, the DB120 should plant 90-100 acres/hour at the recommended 5-5.5 mph, according to Rippchen.


Wow. I mean, I knew people had megafarms, but wow. Can you imagine how many acres you'd have to plant to make the capital outlay worthwhile?

Some of the additional features boggle my mind.

SeedStar 2 monitoring and variable-rate seed drives, pneumatic down force and RowCommand as standard equipment.
...
The DB120’s new design eliminates marker arms and instead relies on GPS guidance for planting accuracy.


Yours next year for a scant $345,000, tractor not included.
