Side Dress Time is Here

What a busy week we have had! Over the years we have diversified to get into all aspects of growing a crop: planting, harvest, fertilizer application, and more. But we have gravitated to specifically specialize in side dressing and nutrient placement, and it was obvious this week with the amount of phone calls and customer who came in looking for parts and help. We did a lot of new applicator start-ups this week. Cody and I were in Michigan yesterday getting 2 J&M 6026 applicators ready to go. We were in Winchester on Wednesday, Pandora, OH on Tuesday, and several phone calls and more next week. We have sold some rotary hoes this past week, not something that you enjoy doing but there has been some beans and corn crusted in with this heat that has requires some emergence assistance from the old mainstay Yetter rotary hoe. Last week we went fishing up on Lake Erie with Dave Gunkelman and Lee Kilpatrick from Salford Group. Listen to that on the latest podcast episode below.

The video below shows us running 2 J&M 6026 applicators in central Michigan. These were controlled with a Raven RCM rate controller. These units feature a 3” fill, J&M parralink coulters and redball flow monitor system.

The Talkin' Shed Podcast by Fennig Equipment

In this episode, don't mind the noise. We were in a service truck headed to Michigan and the noise gets better as we go along, but it is what we had to work with at the time. We talk about the struggles of service, our fishing trip on Lake Erie, and Codys #1 planter attachment.

Dual Coulter Sidedress Application: Placement to the Max

We built 4 applicators this year that will be running 2 coulters down each corn row instead of 1. The idea is to get fertilizer closer to each plant, in the ground, on each side of the row, rather than as far away from the plants as possible. I will have full length videos next week describing this practice in length.
