True precision nutrient placement equipment lets you hit the root zone regardless of tillage practices and application timing. The 2968 Fertilizer Opener allows for precise placement by consistently placing nutrients from 2”-3” off the row. The 2968 Fertilizer Opener is available in single and dual-wheel models, both of which utilize a 10” disc to open the fertilizer slot. The 2968 Fertilizer Opener also comes with the option of a fertilizer injection kit or a spring loaded knife.
2968 Fertilizer Opener Features:
Depth adjustment can be made very quickly
Fits both mounted and pull-type planters
Disc is located behind planter gauge wheel, eliminating fertilizer and damp soil buildup.
Ace Pump Corporation recently announced the introduction of its new Pro 5 Series pumps with advanced features to improve reliability and prevent costly downtime. The new models are updated versions of the popular Ace FMC-HYD series and FMC-150-HYD series pumps.
Our new Pro 5 FMCSC models feature a severe duty silicon carbide seal that resists scratching from abrasive materials, plus a stationary face with O-ring seat transferring heat into the casting to improve seal survival during short run-dry events. The Pro 5 FMCWS models incorporate Ace Pump’s exclusive Oasis WetSeal Technology to isolate the seals from abrasive and corrosive materials and prevent run-dry failure of any length.
Montag’s 2208 is a precision metering system for fertilizer and cover crop seed or a combination of the two. It is a companion piece to a planter or tillage tool. It is the latest product offering in the GEN II family. The 2208 is equipped for variable rate application and up to eight primary row configurations, providing the ability to meet multiple application requirements. Each of the dual product bins can be rate controlled individually. Available in either 60-or 100-cubic-foot tank capacities, the metering system can apply up to 800 lbs/acre at 5 mph while being gentle enough to safely meter cover crop seed.
The Loftness FB1210 12-ton fertilizer spreader features all-hydraulic conveyor and spinner drives. It is variable rate ready and produces the most consistent spread pattern in the industry. Also, it has a 41-inch frame clearance with variable tread width for in-season applications in row crops. The hopper is constructed of 409 stainless steel and includes no obstructions to help prevent material build-up and corrosion, while allowing material to flow smoothly.
Blended Pulse DualFan (BPDF) nozzles use the same Asymmetric DualFan spray pattern as the proven TADF nozzle, bringing the best combination of drift control and coverage to PWM applications without the use of air-injection.
The BPDF is truly a multi-purpose nozzle, producing a Very Coarse to Coarse droplet spectrum at lower pressure for drift control in burndown applications, and Coarse to Medium droplets at higher pressure, perfect for coverage critical applications like contact herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and more.
The DualFan spray pattern relieves coverage concerns associated with PWM nozzles pulsing on and off. As with the popular TADF nozzle, farmers can maximize coverage by alternating BPDF nozzles on the boom to provide four angles of spray into the canopy, effectively spraying the target four times in one pass.
A great liquid fertilizer system starts with a Next Generation Piston Pump (NGP). Our hydraulic drive piston pumps offer a lower cost and more compact solution for variable rate piston pump drives, and allows for quick and stable adjustment to application rates. They are ideal for planter and sidedress applications. Hydraulic motor/PWM manifold kits available. Our standard pumps are the benchmark for ag pumps. Field tested and farmer approved, John Blue pumps are guaranteed to do the job. When you want a reliable, dependable, and accurate system for fertilizer delivery, choose John Blue.
Totally Tubular Mfg’s design for starter fertilizer tubes puts fertilizer down below the seed, right in the root system of the plant. Starter fertilizer has become a widely used practice with today’s successful farming operations.
This simple, effective design is helpful with faster plant emergence and better yields. The fertilizer tube is protected by the disc blades and welded to the factory seed tube guard. Totally Tubular Mfg offers fertilizer tubes for a variety of planters including John Deere, Kinze, Case, White and Monosem.

The Rebounder’s Y-Not Split-It® kit applies liquid fertilizer directly on side walls of the furrow, rather than splashing up on your planter, thus protecting the seeds while providing ample nutrients for germination. Installation is easy and efficient; assemble the kit directly to the bottom end of the Rebounder and connect lines supplied by your fertilizer application system. If you don’t have a pump system, give us a call. Our techs will gladly set you up with one specifically designed for your planter and help keep your farm’s operations convenient and profitable.
Built tough, the G-Series (G2™-G3™-G4™) walking beam spaces out the closing wheels, giving complete closure in terraces and valleys that can leave the furrow open and seeds exposed to the elements. On OEM tail sections, rocks and root balls can lodge between the closing wheels. The G-Series allows each wheel to travel independently over obstacles in the field, without locking up the other wheel and dragging it over the furrow.
The stainless fertilizer tube and disc mounted on the rear of the G2 and G4 applies large volumes of liquid 2x2 more efficiently than other applications on top of the ground.
Farmada’s commercial grade Elxir™ 66 fertilizer toolbar is available from 35’-65’ working widths on 30” or 20” row spacing. Farmada’s partnership with ShieldAg provides proven coulter, shank, sealer & knife technology for applying NH3, liquid, dry or any combination of these fertilizers up to 12 inches deep. High flotation inside frame tires accurately gauge working depth for a maximum 24’ range of vertical wing motion side to side. Farmada’s oscillating center frame axles combined with the single point depth controlling self-leveling frame, ensure product is applied and sealed where and how it needs to be.
