These planter accessories could fit your farm

What’s New From the Shows: Get seed and fertilizer into the ground properly in all kinds of conditions.

By Farm Progress staff

Plenty of companies are striving to “build a better mousetrap” when it comes to hardware or software that will help you do a better job of planting and applying fertilizer. Planter technology is evolving, and the race is on among companies to see who can come up with better solutions for everything from clearing a path for seed openers to closing the trench as cleanly and consistently as possible.

The result is a constantly flowing stream of new products that someone hopes might seem like the answer to getting better stands in your fields than you do now. More and more people seem to recognize that the planting trip is the money trip today.

Martin-Till has a new row cleaner that it believes does a superior job in many conditions. Ag Systems introduced a new large-capacity tender to get product to the field. These are just two of the new offerings you can evaluate before next season.

Others include a depth-control system from Kinze and a completely different way to achieve the goal of proper planting depth from Graham. Use the contact information provided with the descriptions of these products to learn more.

LDM brings a possible solution for those worried that extra weight on the planter, especially on central-fill planters, may cause soil compaction that could impact center rows more than others. Its solution helps redistribute weight across the planter.

Look carefully at all the new products offered in the slideshow below.
