PFR Report: Planter Maintenance and Upgrades

Published on Wednesday, February 3, 2021

As farmers are preparing for the upcoming 2021 planting season, winter is a great time to review planter maintenance and install upgrades. Travis Burnett, northern Indiana Beck’s field sales agronomist, and southern IN Beck’s field sales agronomist, Travis Coleman, inspect what to look for on planters to prep for successful planting passes.

These two agronomists review what planter parts should be examined for maintenance and highlight yield-improving planter attachments Practical Farm Research (PFR®) has tested at Beck’s. Watch to learn more on:

  • Aftermarket closing wheels – Schaffert 4 Link Closer with Walking Axle & Precision Planting®’s automated FurrowForce™
  • 2x2x2 systems like Precision Planting’s Conceal™ and Yetter’s Dual 2968 Series
  • Hydraulic downforce systems like Precision Planting’s DeltaForce®

Maximize your planter today with some of these equipment improvements!
