PFR Report

Central-Fill Pinch Row Compaction

Published on Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Three-year Practical Farm Research (PFR)® shows an average of 12.6 Bu./A. yield loss on pinch rows from central-fill planters. Pinch row compaction leads to shorter, stunted plants, restricted roots and ultimately yield loss. 

Beck’s PFR Innovation Lead  Jason Webster introduces a new on-farm study where we will attempt to combat pinch row compaction by replacing original lift tires with planter tracks. Check out the video to learn more.
