Seedbed Utilization

Opener and input adaptability allow the Precision Shank Drill to achieve an effective row spacing of 7.5 inches. Single row or paired row openers are available, with or without simultaneous fertilizer application. With the right combination of options, farmers can utilize up to 47% of the seed bed.

Fertilizer Efficiency

The Precision Shank Drill maximizes fertilizer efficiency by giving you full control to manage fertilizer for your crops and soil conditions.

Right Source – Apply NH3, liquid or dry fertilizer
Right Rate – Dual placement openers for desired fertilizer amount at seeding time
Right Time
– Place as much as needed while planting; you can also pre-apply fertilizer in the fall
Right Place – Place fertilizer between adjacent rows and 1.5 inches deeper than the seed, right where the roots need it in their development (optional ribbon seeding delivers higher rates of fertilizer without damaging the seed)

Blockage/Flow Monitors

Optional blockage monitors detect relative flow of seed and/or fertilizer to each row unit. This means the technology not only shows you whether or not material is flowing, but it also alerts you if the flow is less than your target rate.
