Do a great job closing the furrow

"Our soil is Fargo clay," said Kevin Onchuck, who farms with his brother, Dan. "It's real sticky. We used to be able to walk behind our planter, look down at the furrow, and see the seed. Rubber closing wheels were not closing the furrow at all.

"We added a Yetter 6200 Cast Spike Closing Wheel on one side of each row unit on our White 8500 planter. They do a great job closing the furrow. Our germination has really improved."

Kevin has used the Cast Spike Closing Wheels for two years on 1,800 acres of corn and, when the weather cooperates, wheat. Due to the wet soil conditions, he sticks to conventional tillage practices. "The Cast Spike Closing Wheels are a good option to reduce sidewall compaction. They've been very durable. We're thinking of adding them to both sides of the row unit."

My Yetter residue managers cleared the path to higher yields

"My Yetter 2967 Screw Adjust Residue Managers cleared the path to higher yields in my soybeans. I added them to my 1790 John Deere planter with 15-inch spacing. My no-till soybean yields were an award-winning 89.77—the fourth highest in the country in all categories. Clearing the big pieces of residue out of the path of the planter has led to more consistent seed depth, which means more uniform stands. I operate them in very high residue conditions, and the SharkTooth® wheel has not had any issues with plugging. The Screw Adjust feature is operator friendly; I can achieve my desired settings very quickly with a turn of the knob.

"I also use the 6200 Cast Spike Closing Wheels. They are really effective at crumbling the soil over the seed and eliminating sidewall compaction. They complement the job the Screw Adjusts do in creating the ideal seedbed. Yetter attachments are durable and well made, and they have really earned their keep in my operation."
