The G2™ fertilizer disc applies fertilizer behind the planter, 2-4 inches to the side of the row. This 11 pound, 8- or 9-inch single disc opener system is designed on a patented walking beam axle, placing balanced pressure on both press wheels and providing even fertilizer depth in uneven terrain. The newly updated fertilizer bracket streams low and high pressure, and pivots 40 degrees in and out from center so you can control where the fertilizer is injected. Also new is a heavy duty rubber boot to help eliminate fertilizer on the row unit. The G2 fits most planters and works well with the 4 Link Closer™.

Schaffert’s stainless steel fertilizer tubes for Case IH mount directly on the planter units. They inject fertilizer directly into the V opened by the Case IH covering discs, giving crops early access to the nutrients needed for optimal growth. The tubes run 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 Tracker press wheels. The tubes come with low and high pressure tips. Rights and lefts are available for single or dual side placement for Case IH 800-2100 series planters.

When you need to synchronize the rate of two materials, Richway Rate Controllers may be your solution. The Richway planter fertilizer Rate Controller is one example. Turf sprayer control and concrete mixing controls are two others. The concept is simple: We measure one thing that is occurring and then control the rate of something else from that input. For example, you can measure ground speed of a sprayer and then adjust the flow rate of the product so application rate per acre is always the same, regardless of speed. If there is a way to count or measure one variable, a Richway control system can be designed to control another variable. Multiple inputs and outputs may be used. Richway controllers are field proven for more than 15 years and are economical.
Fertilizer application with minimal disturbance. The Genesis RAZER is a single disc, minimal disturbance opener for single or dual placement of anhydrous ammonia, liquid or dry fertilizer.

The Dual Placement System from Precision Fabrication LLC places the liquid nutrients 3 inches from the seed trench, on both sides, and the same depth as the seed. Placing nutrients in the root zone has proven to give the best crop yields for the fertilizer dollar. It is designed as a low pressure system to avoid getting splatter on the machine. Ten-inch openers run slightly "toed in," thus creating 2 narrow trenches into which the fertilizer is streamed at very low pressure. Eleven models cover many popular planter row units.
Nutri-Pro® by Great Plains combines vertical strip-tillage with nutrient application. Great Plains’ innovative Nutri-Pro® Precision models are designed to apply liquid fertilizer while simultaneously removing residue and vertically strip-tilling the planting zone, promoting fast, even emergence in the newly cleaned, warmed and fertile seedbed. They allow the producer to pre-apply liquid fertilizer in the spring — just prior to planting — replacing traditional methods of applying nutrients in the fall to eliminate winter Nitrogen losses. Patent-pending Quik-Tach™ Coulters allow the three-coulter Nutri-Pro Precision models to be easily converted from pre-apply to sidedress so fertilizer can be applied after the plants have emerged, ensuring nutrients reach the plant directly for maximum benefit and reduced waste.
