IT'S FRIDAY! Hard to believe it is almost mid October already! Harvest in most of Ohio is slowly starting, a lot of beans are off but this corn has some drying to do. Where would we be had we not had the extremes heat this summer! This week we did more Yetter Devastator installations. Our guys traveled to Markle, IN, DeGraff, Ohio, Pandora, Ohio, and Wilmington, Ohio to mount devastators. Next week we will be busy moving Salford Vertical tillage tools around for demos and rentals. If you need parts this weekend, call the 419-953-8500 number for weekend parts!
Troy Furrer from Wolcott, IN fills his Valmar 1655 mounted to his 8 row Drago GT corn head. Troy and his son Josh have been seeding covers this way for 3 years now with great success. We also installed a Yetter Devastator under the corn head to help incorporate the seed. Cover Crop Seeding with a combine is a very nice way of doing so.
When it comes to seeding covers there are really 3 time frames to seed.
Each of these phases offers an opportunity and each has its down falls. When interseeding at side dress you have to worry about chemical residue inhibiting growth of your covers and the covers also have to make it through a dormant stage. The interseed post tassel is great because you get a growing crop that is fresh and ready to go at harvest time, the down side is the seeding typically doesn't get incorporated which relies on rainfall to germ. The final option, post harvest VT is great because it gets incorporated and it does not have to compete with a growing crop, the downside is finding time to make that past post harvest and also having good growing conditions in the fall.

I bought a Yetter 40 ft. Tool bar off of Fennig Equipment with Yetter Magnums and I love it. It's fun to put NH3 on again, you can run 7-8 MPH in no-till and it does a great job.
