Meter performance is a key contributor to yield. If your meters perform at less than 99% singulation, you are losing out on yield. Walk your fields and measure off 17’ 5” of one of your 30” rows. Is there one skip? Is there a double? Are there more? Can you afford that at today’s grain prices?
Planting refuge corn mixed in with your traits? Using high rate seed treatments or inoculants? Seed not consistently graded? Successfully singulating seed is getting harder. Not all meters can handle these inconsistencies in seed shape, size, and density. How well is your meter performing today?
We’ve all been there. Heavy rains keep coming and you can’t get in the field. When weather and planting conditions are ideal, you want to plant as much you can. You’re currently limited though in your planting capacity because the mechanical capabilities of your current planter limit the speed at which you can plant without compromising performance.
Replace your existing seed tube with SpeedTube. It utilizes two feeder wheels to grab the seed off the vSet® disk and place it into a belt that controls the seed all the way into the trench. The independent electric drive within SpeedTube matches the ground speed of the planter, enabling an ideal drop of the seed into the trench. Go twice as fast through the field on the planter pass, while still maintaining the planting performance you want.
Trading Planters Doesn’t Always Make Sense. When many farmers trade planters, the goal is to get the latest technology as well as an updated row unit. Typically the tool bar of the planter is in great shape. What if you could get the updated row unit and technology you want, without the expense and hassle of trading planters?
Keep Your Planter, Upgrade Your Row Unit. Instead of trading for an updated planter at signifi cant expense, why not simply put new row units on your current planter? The Precision Planting Ready Row Unit is fully customizable to your operation’s needs with different gauge wheel options, closing wheel options, hopper confi gurations, and fertility attachments. Don’t trade, upgrade.
