Tackling a range of planting issues

As combines slowly stop running across the upper Midwest, your mind may be turning to thoughts of planting the 2014 crop. We've rounded up a few new tools and products here in this planter and planter accessory gallery for you to consider. The Penton/Farm Progress team has scoped out a few new items from the fall farm shows for you to check out.

Accurate planting has long been the key to establishing a solid stand of any crop. Planter, and planter accessory, makers focus on this issue and are constantly innovating what they offer the market. What you'll find in this gallery may spark an idea or two for your operation.

From pasture drills that also make food plot planting easier, to new planters that may be meeting your growing need for speed, you'll find that here. In addition, we've found a few accessory items that aim to make your planter work better in a wider range of conditions.

And the hot cover crop trend hasn't been left behind, since we include products that help plant cover crops, but also planters that are designed to plant in fields that have a heavy cover crop established. Peruse the gallery and look at the spring 2014 planting tech you have available to you today.
