Keely Sweeps Work Great For Injecting Anhydrous
Those popular, new Kelly sweeps for chisel plows and field cultivators which you first read about in FARM SHOW are making new headlines.
Latest new development, introduced by Harlan Mfg., is Kelly sweeps equipped with bolt-on hose brackets on the back side for injecting anhydrous or liquid fertilizer.
"This new use for Kelly sweeps is still experimental but we did get excellent results in testing it last year," says George Kintner, vice president of sales.
He notes that, unlike sweeps which throw dirt to the side, the Kelly shovel lifts it and then gently sets it back in place, sealing in the anhydrous. Kintner suggests using Kelly shovels, equipped with the new bolt-on hose brackets, on field cultivators either on the back row or middle row of shanks, to inject anhydrous and till in one trip. Or, they can replace narrow "spikes" to provide more aggressive tillage of the soil along with anhydrous injection. Another possibility is direct injection of anyhdrous and a herbicide, such as Sutan.
Each hard-surfaced Kelly sweep (8 or 10 in. width) with a matching bolt-on bracket (for 3/8 in. hose) retails for right at $18.
