We run all John deere receivers and displays, and was thinking about buying a new Holland pull type sprayer for top dressing and the odd spraying job it has a 6 section field IQ. Does field IQ work for sectional control or is it just to turn on sections manually. Have no experience with Trimble just trying to understand it.

I run a 5 section feild iq for liquid fertilizer on my seed hawk. feild iq is section control thro trimbel. I bought and installed it all 2 yrs ago myself. Pros are It works very nice for the price tag and is extreamly accurate and easy to use when it works. cons are coming from a deere display trimbel is a little trickier to navigate around but not terrible. Trimbel in my experiance has very little product support. Feild iq is not very common so good luck finding a dealership that will help troubleshoot problems/know anything even though they will sell you anything. Already had a fried controle modual.

So now if wanted section control would need a let's say 750 display and a receiver to know when to shut it off? Would probably use the deere stuff still for steering and tractor. No way they could be connected to deere receiver for known location?

Just use the Trimble. You need a FM750 or 1000 with the field IQ box to have section and rate control. Trimble makes a good product and doesn't take money from you every time you turn around like the Deere. Their last money grab with just telling you your system is outdated and won't work and you need to purchase new is a huge money grab. It can have up to 15 sections controlled I believe. The system isn't hard to operate at all. It asks you the questions and you type in the answers for set up. I have had my Trimbles for 10 yrs now and had my first problem last fall with my ez pilot. There is a place in the states that repairs them but I have purchased a new EZpilot and will send them the broke one to get fixed. Likely just a broken wire or circuit internally. Nothing Deere makes is compatible with anything else. They make sure of that.
