Checklist for #Plant15

Published on Monday, April 20, 2015

Hopefully by now, the snow has melted and the countryside has started to green. The 2015 season is about to begin! Are you ready on your farm? To help keep on target and avoid last minute quick fixes, let’s review a short checklist of what we need to get started.

Planter preparation – Have you gone through meters, disc openers, gauge wheels, closing wheels, checked parallel arms, etc.? If not, check out this video from Jason Webster on planter preparation to make sure yours is ready to go.

Seed – Is your seed delivered? If the answer is no, then it would be a great idea to have your seed in the shed so that you are ready when the soil and weather are fit.

Tractors, tillage tools, seed tenders, etc. – Is all of your other equipment ready to go? If not, now is the time to get that done! Let’s get the 2015 season off to a great start by making sure we are ready when conditions are right!
