South Dakota Farmer Plants Crop and Fertilizes in One Field Pass

South Dakota farmer Pat Breen makes only one trip across the field when it's time to plant. He does that using a 60-ft.-wide Horsch Anderson air seeder equipped with an Exactrix fertilizing system.

The entire setup stretches 110 ft. from bumper to tailgate and consists of a John Deere 9630 pulling the 48-shank air-seeder followed by a 500-bu. air cart that then pulls a homemade fertilizer cart. The cart holds two, 1,000-gal. anhydrous ammonia tanks and two 750-gal. liquid fertilizer tanks. No saddle tanks are attached to the tractor.
