Option 1: 6200 Paddle Wheels break down the sidewalls of the seed trench and press the soil toward the seed. They remove sidewall compaction and completely close the seed trench while firming the soil around the seed to achieve an even seed-to-soil contact in varying soil conditions.
Option 2: 6200 Cast Spike Closing Wheels reduce sidewall compaction around the seed and ensure seed trench closure. As the spike wheels break apart the sidewalls of the seed trench, they leave loose soil around the seed to fully close the seed trench in challenging soil conditions.

Our new 2x2 stainless steel fertilizer tube mounts directly on Case IH planter units. It injects fertilizer directly into the slice opened by the Case IH leading covering disc, placing fertilizer precisely where you need it: in a 2x2 pattern, giving crops early access to the nutrients needed for optimal growth. The tube runs close to the soil surface and the fertilizer is incorporated into the soil, helping eliminate splash on the planter, covering discs, and press wheels. This keeps fertilizer from building up on the standard or Chicken Track press wheels. The 2x2 tube comes with optional high pressure tips.

Common rubber wheels are normally associated with the seed trench crusting and baking, or simply opening back up when they are used in wet soil. This is by far the most common complaint from farmers using traditional wheels. Posi-Close Planter Wheels will leave soft mulch on top of the seedbed to prevent crusting and baking. Posi-Close Wheels will not leave any smearing or extreme compaction, which is always coupled with use of regular rubber wheels. No need to worry about the seed trench opening back up with our wheels because there will be no seed trench. With the patented "horizontal rod" design and with a wide ground path, Posi-Close Wheels will literally destroy the seed trench.
Agronomic Studies have shown that 2x2 starter fertilizer placement creates the largest yield increase of any starter treatment due to the fertilizer being placed directly in the root zone.

The Laforge Guided Hitch is an integrated implement steering solution for 2-point implements in conjunction with John Deere Active Implement Guidance. On John Deere 1770NT, 1775NT, 1790 and 1795NT planters, it replaces the factory hitch and integrates seamlessly to the planter. A hydraulic cylinder slides the planter hitch horizontally to offer up to 20 inches of hitch movement for sub-inch accuracy. It compensates for the planter’s side-hill drift, improves yield by reducing seedbed compaction and helps to optimize seed placement relative to nutrient application and making perfect end-rows and guess-rows. Compatible with Cat.3 and Cat.4N 3-pt hitch.
Consisting of a combination of planting attachments in a five-step process, the Martin-Till planting system is designed to increase the number of days available for planting, improve stands and increase the chances of faster, early growth in a wide range of soil conditions.
The Furrow Cruiser is the most advanced spiked closing wheel on the market today. No other closing system can offer the same firming/crumbling action and be as consistent as these wheels in every planting condition. That is why several studies in 2015 showed these wheels to be better than any other closing wheel on the market in varying conditions. Run Furrow Cruisers, two per row, for maximum emergence and ultimate yield.
SpikeWheel technology is ideal for no-till systems because it allows farmers to place liquid fertilizer at the plant's root zone for optimal crop uptake with low disturbance.

The Curvetine™ M-Series Closing System has unique curved teeth to chip-in side wall compaction without ejecting soil from the seed zone. Unlike straight tooth wheels, the curved tooth eases out of the seed zone while providing consistent seed-to-soil contact for uniform emergence. We do not recommend running drag-chains or seed firmers with the Curvetine closing wheel, the wheel creates an ideal seed-bed in most conditions without any additional equipment. For customers who will be running in mellow, or heavily worked ground the Curvetine™ may be used with either your standard rubber closer, or if your planter is equipped with two M-Series hubs, you can swap out your Curvetine for the FurrowFlex steel rimmed rubber wheel. Typically we recommend you run the Curvetine in the front bolt-hole and the rubber wheel in the rear bolt-hole of the tail piece.
We know row cleaner adjustments aren't always the highest priority during planting. Row cleaners should set correctly, but as the planting window narrows, there is little time for adjustments. So we may have to gouge a little, or not quite clear enough, in order to get the crop planted on schedule. The simple, yet dependable design of the Gfx row cleaner gives you unparalleled control over your row cleaning. The hydraulically controlled Trashwheels can be instantaneously adjusted over the entire length of the planter, using a simple in-cab electronic interface. Don't settle for a mediocre seedbed, take control of your planter.
