Triple Disc Drill
I've come up with a new triple disc drill shoe design that makes it easy to deep-band fertilizer below seed. I made it by adding a third disc to a standard double disc opener. The disc is positioned to the side and higher than the original two discs. In the new configuration, the original double discs place the fertilizer in a deep band and the third disc places the seed. I made one unit last year and mounted it on a Haybuster 1206 drill. I simply used a Haybuster disc for the third disc. The disc bolts to a strap iron shoe mounted off to the side of the double discs. The triple disc shoe worked just the way I thought it would with no problems. I'd like to develop the idea commercially. (Lloyd Twite, Rt. 5, Minot, N. Dak. 58701)
