Deere corn planter converted to plant narrow rows
I bought a new Deere corn planter in the spring of 1990. It was set up for wide rows but I wanted to plant narrow rows. Every-thing on the planter could be coverted to narrow except the marker arms, which were too long. Rather than spend $700 on new markers, or cut them off and shorten them, I just welded a piece of square tubing to the end of each marker that points back toward the planter. The disks can still be mounted normally on the end for wide rows. (Curtiss Berndt, 5247 N. U.S. 31, Free Soil, Mich. 49411)
