Looked around for years

"I looked around for years for something like these fertilizer openers so that I could apply fertilizer without wrecking the seed trench," said Rob Goblirsch. After he put Yetter Farm Equipment's 2968 Row-Unit Mount In-Between Fertilizer Openers on his 1770 John Deere 16-row planter, he knew he had found what he was looking for.

Rob uses the fertilizer openers while applying nitrogen, as well as other fertilizers, to his 600 acres of corn. "These give me more flexibility to put down what I need without worrying about the mud or wrecking the furrow," Rob said. "I apply fertilizer two inches off the row, and it works great. I also like that it is a compact system."

We don't lose nitrogen through nitrification

"We concluded that for our no-till operation, we needed to get fertilizer deeper into the ground. Because the Yetter injection system places the fertilizer in the ground, we don't lose nitrogen through nitrification or because it sits on the top of the residue. They've provided a big cost benefit because they've lowered our nitrogen needs per bushel. Yetter coulters are also are a pretty fuel-efficient option.

"I like Yetter products because they are well-researched and the designs advance with the times. Yetter sales reps are great—always willing to help me execute new ideas."

Immediately ordered seven more

After he saw a Yetter Farm Equipment magazine ad, Sixtus Laskowski ordered one Yetter 2968 Row-Unit Mount In-Between Fertilizer Opener for his thousand-acre farm near Stockdale, Texas. He mounted it on his 7300 John Deere planter, tested it, and immediately ordered seven more.

He used the opener for his spring planting of corn, grain sorghum, and cotton. Sixtus says the fertilizer openers work well across his range of soils, from black loam to pure sand. He describes his tillage method as "minimum conventional tillage."

He places the fertilizer two inches below and two inches to the side of his cotton rows. "It’s far enough away so that it doesn’t affect germination, but available when the cotton starts setting roots," he said.

To protect the equipment from corrosion after exposure to fertilizer, he flushes it thoroughly with water and applies a coat of oil.
