With more than 30 years of experience designing, modifying and using planting systems, Jim Bassett says planters are the most important piece of equipment on the farm. However, they are often the most ignored and least maintained.
Taking a lazy or passive approach to setting up your planter can negate the advantages of seed genetics, targeted chemical applications and precision technology.
There are simple steps strip-tillers can implement to dramatically improve the performance of their planters and increase profitability within their farming operation.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Dawn Equipment, we welcome Jim to discuss why and how improving planter performance is often the easiest and least expensive pathway to increasing yields and profits.
