Sickle Sections Improve Marker"My planter marker makes a more visible mark ever since I bolted several old mower sections on the edge of the disc. Works great in no-till," says Hugh Moser, Jefferson City, Tenn.
Moser plants corn in crimson clover and in some heavy soil where the conventional disc markers on his Deere 7000 b-row planter don't leave much of a mark. To solve the problem he bolted six old mower sections to the edge of each marker disc, spacing them evenly. The sections extend about 2 in. out from the disc.
"The mower sections cut right through heavy clover and trash," says Moser. "They won't always cut all the way to the ground, but they always leave a highly visible mark."
