I wanted a custom-built, small planter
As a first-year farmer with a small acreage, Mike Sottile turned to Yetter Manufacturing for the company's 71 Series Planter Units. "I went to my local equipment dealer looking for a reasonable planting setup. I wanted a custom-built, small planter. The Yetter planter units were not too large, and they were a good fit for my narrow soybean rows." This year, Mike narrowed his rows further to 15-inch spacing and increased the number on units on his planter to 11.
"I also have a single unit on a small frame that we pull with a four-wheeler," said Mike. "It's perfect for tight spots or patching and repair without running the tractor down the row. The seed placement with the Yetter planter units has been very good. So has the emergence. Once I understood how to operate them, I had very little trouble with them—especially for a first-time farmer!"
