When time’s short and you have plenty of ground to cover, 21st Century Equipment has everything you need for seed success!
We’ve teamed up with Meristem Crop Performance to offer two new exclusive planter box treatments: Hopper Throttle™ Corn Planter Box Treatment and Revline™ Hopper Throttle™ Corn powered by Terrasym™
We know weather windows can be short, and you need to plant fast. That means there is no time for diversity issues with the seed, and poor performance is simply unacceptable. Instead, you want that cornfield looking like a picket fence span with no skips, no doubles and a seed properly placed everywhere there’s supposed to be a seed.
At 21st Century Equipment, we’re burying the myth of the 5mph planting speed because John Deere planters are equipped with ExactEmerge™ plants seeds with precise placement at 10mph. As you're putting the seed in the ground, you want to give that seed every opportunity it can to make the most bushels per acre.
But even if your seed is going in the ground fast and efficiently, how can you increase the yield?
Think about that seed germinating and starting to colonize the roots. The cells begin to colonize the above-ground portions of the plant and form a lasting symbiotic partnership with the plant over the cropping season. With a planter box treatment, you’ll not only benefit from ease of planting and good stand establishment but also greater early vigor root mass, increases in root biomass uptake of micronutrients and greater nitrogen availability. And those different features really work together to bring that yield increase.
But don’t forget, you also need the right products to get this all started the right way.
