Reduce Risk and Increase Yield
Today, yield response from starter is limited by the current in-furrow and 2×2 attachments. Due to fertilizer salt burn risk, rates for in-furrow pop-up attachments area very limited, capping the yield opportunity. Starter fertilizer placed by using 2×2 attachments is just too far away from the plant roots to be effective during early root devleopment.
By being near-furrow, FurrowJet’s placements give the seedling and crown roots immediate and continuous access to the nutrients.
FurrowJet offers a lot of flexibility since your nutrient management plan is as unique as your fields are. It mounts to our quick-attach firmer bracket and has a first-stage mini firmer that functions like the standard Keeton® seed firmer. A second stage wing cuts into the furrow applying fertilizer in three locations. There is flexibility in this system with our two inputs, one in-furrow and a second going to the wings. If you choose to you may put a micro-nutrient package in-furrow and a more economical starter through the wings or you could T a single product like a 10-34-0 and run it through all 3 outputs, you could even just run a product through the wings or in-furrow only.
