Furrow Max™ Closing System CONTACT SALES CONTACT SALES

Yetter Furrow Max two Wheel closing system photo with logoWhen it’s time to plant, you take every step you can to set your crop up for success—from timing it right to seed selection, planter setup, and fertilizer application. One factor that’s critical to better crop yields is even emergence, and the key to achieving even emergence is effectively closing the seed trench.

The Furrow Max Closing System is designed to break up sidewall compaction. The two-stage system merges loose soil in the center of the disc opening and firms the soil over the seed. With adjustable pressure settings on the closing disc followed by a firming wheel, the Furrow Max ensures optimal seed-to-soil contact. Growers can achieve better emergence and improve crop stands in corn, soybeans, cotton, canola, and sugar beets.

GET TO KNOW THE FURROW MAX

THE FURROW MAX DIFFERENCE

Effective seed trench closure has three steps: breaking up sidewalls, crumbling the soil back together, and firming the soil around the seed. 

How is the Furrow Max Closing System different? 

It’s a compact, easily adjustable two-stage system that uses both closing discs and a firming wheel to ensure the seed trench is closed.

Here’s how it works:

  • Stage 1: The two 8" closing discs eliminate sidewall compaction on both sides of the seed trench by moving the loosened soil to the center of the disc opening and over the seed.

  • Stage 2: The firming wheel follows behind the discs. Its pressing action minimizes air pockets, increasing crucial seed-to-soil contact. The firming wheel also ensures uniform soil density, which is key to maintaining moisture. If the soil is too loose, it will dry out and your seeds will lose the moisture they need for germination.

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN VARYING SOIL CONDITIONS

The Furrow Max offers more adjustment capability than other closing systems on the market. It is a tandem system that features four down pressure settings each for the closing discs and firming wheel. The Furrow Max can be adjusted to exert minimum or maximum down pressure depending on the moisture content of the soil.


Other units force the seed trench closed, leading to inconsistent and often negative results. But the Furrow Max allows you to maximize yield potential by fine-tuning the unit for your operation’s unique terrain, crop, moisture levels, and soil conditions.
