Kit Improves Performance Of Deere Planters
The "Posi-Plant" kit consists of a heavy-duty seed shoe and pair of disk scrapers that run inside the disk blade. Because the seed shoe runs slightly below the level of the disk opener, it creates a true V-shaped trench, instead of leaving a "W" of soil in the bottom between disk blade tracks.
The result is more uniform depth and seed-to-soil contact for a better stand, the company says. It's also ideal for small-seeded crops such as sugar beets.
Sells for $65 per row.
