Be sure your corn planter is set up for maximum performance when spring rolls around. Unfortunately, each year I end up in a field with a disappointing stand that could have been avoided with proper planter maintenance. Everything from the row cleaners to the closing system should be inspected. A thorough planter inspection can help you find parts that need replaced and help you avoid a loss in stand, and ultimately yield. If you have questions on your planter talk to one of Wheat Growers Precison Ag Specialists. These specialists work around planters year around and have the knowledge to help your planter operate at its maximum potential. They are also up to date on all the new precision technology that is out there. Wheat Growers will be having a planter clinic in Kimball on February 17th that will go over planter preparation.
