Improved, Revolutionary Liquid Application System

Indianola, Nebraska, Nov. 2, 2009 – At Schaffert Manufacturing, we are constantly researching ways to improve farming efficiency. Each year we take feedback from our existing customers and implement it into our product line. Two seasons ago, we introduced the “Out the Front” Fertilizer Disc. The “Out the Front” Fertilizer Disc is placed between the gauge wheel and the press wheel, making it approximately 12” from the seed drop, and works best in heavier soil types.

Based on user feedback, we decided to come out with another model type, the “Out the Back” Fertilizer Disc. It is best used in lighter soil types. Both utilize a walking arm to equalize pressure on the fertilizer disc and closing wheel and depth is adjustable.
