Pictured Above: SINGULATOR IN ACTION. A great stand starts with precise seed singulation. Get your season off to the right start by calibrating your seed meters.

The meter is the heart of your planter. So if you think about every seed that gets placed in the furrow, it starts at your meter. An uncalibrated meter will cost you yield and money, reducing your profitability. 

It’s important that your meter is running at a high level of accuracy. To start, you can take your meters to a Precision Planting Premier Dealer and have them tested on a MeterMax® Ultra test stand. The Premier Dealer can run your meters and tell you if you have any worn components that need to be replaced and they can set your meters so they give you the best level of accuracy once you go to the field. Take your meters to a Precision Planting dealer so that when you go to the field you know that your meters are getting you the best results possible.

TEST FOR ACCURACY. A Precision Planting Premier Dealer can test your seed meter for accuracy with the MeterMax Ultra test stand. An uncalibrated meter can cost you yield and money, reducing your profitability.

No matter the type of meter or brand of planter that you have on your farm, it can benefit from being calibrated. Calibrated meters improve singulation and spacing of your crop, which leads to improved yields and seed savings.
