Chad is sending a batch of new disc openers back to the factory due to a fault that many may not notice. He explains how even the smallest imperfection can cause problems in the field this spring during planting.
Interested in upgrading your planter fertility system? Kelly and Mike stopped in the CapstanAg booth at Farm Progress earlier this year to talk about their experience with the SelectShot system and the new precision system they recently installed on their sprayer.
Kelly Garrett discusses the Capstan Ag SelectShot trials he conducted this season.
Lee Lubbers discusses the Capstan Ag SelectShot trials he conducted on his planter this season.
Kevin Matthews discusses the Capstan Ag SelectShot trials he conducted with Xyway on his planter this season.
This Spring, Lee Lubbers had the opportunity to trial the Fendt Momentum Planter on his South Dakota farm. He was most interested in how it would perform in the pinch row, an area that is typically a low yielding spot due to compaction caused by the tires on his JD 1775. Lee compares pinch row progress in this side by side trial.
Chad was inspired by a member question last week about what he needs to do to get over the wall that he feels he has hit and push higher yields. He lends his thoughts on what to look at when pushing yields.
Kevin takes a close look at each of the components that make up CapstanAg's SelectShot system as installed on his JohnDeere ExactEmerge planter this spring. The unique add-on system delivers a shot of fertilizer as each seed is dropped into the furrow, reducing fertilizer use when compared to the traditional "dribble" approach that is used by most in-furrow planter systems.
Lee takes the Fendt Momentum Planter to the field as part of his side by side test with his John Deere.
