3 Steps to Max Pod Profitability

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!


A fairly mild week for the most part in Ohio. To some, that is great news. To the thousands of hunters participating in Ohio's gun season, they would rather see it a little colder. Either way December is here already, the season of farm shows, clinics, holidays and snow! A time to reflect on the great 2021 harvest and make changes and prepare equipment for 2022. Fertilizer applicators have been a very hot topic this week as we moved several new and used liquid rigs here in Ohio. Farm shows fire up as we move into the Indianapolis show next Friday. The show begins the following Tuesday. The latest podcast is loaded below and ready for you to listen. This episode was recorded yesterday and we covered a wide variety of topics. Give it a listen this weekend!


Have a great weekend, and feel free to call 419-953-8500.

The 3 Ingredients for Making Profitable Pods

  1. Yetter devastator on your corn head. What this does is start the breaking down process of the stalk which releases tied up nutrient back into the soil. Those nutrients are very valuable and soybeans will benefit from them, so lets instantly start the breakdown process and step one is having a devastator on your corn head.
  2. Adding row cleaners to your planter.Profitable pods require very little tillage, meaning there will be residue there to clear. Creating a zone of clean dirt to place the seed at the correct depth is very important at planting time. Row cleaners clear the residue allowing seed disks to work in soil and allow your closing wheels to work much better as well. Now we can aggressively cut back bean planting populations because we have a lot less loss due to residue.
  3. Poly spike closing wheels.I cannot say enough about how much of a difference this investment will make. Within 100 acres, they will pay for themselves. Closing the trench is huge on soybeans and with the poly spikes, they will get it right the first time. Simply bolt them onto your planter, and let them work for you.
