Great Plains Delivers Tillage and Seeding in One New Tool

High Plains wheat farmers who conventionally till large acreages will appreciate the time and cost savings offered by the new Field Cultivator Air Drill from Great Plains.

The unique machine combines a Great Plains Field Cultivator with Great Plains 00 Series Drill Openers, allowing operators to till soil and drill seed at the same time. The Field Cultivator Air Drill’s high productivity means less time in the field and lower input costs for farmers.

With the release of the smaller 8½- and 10-foot Turbo-Max models for lower horsepower tractors and a 48-foot Turbo-Max for larger tractors, more farmers will have access to the benefits of true vertical tillage, which translates to improved water infiltration, root development, and nutrient uptake.

Developed specifically for the Delta region, but with nationwide appeal, Great Plains has released a new 30-foot stack-fold planter with individual hoppers. The simple, yet rugged, 3P3025AH Planter was designed in response to the popularity of its 40-foot predecessor.

“The 3P3025AH offers growers a unique variety of row spacings that are less common in the stack-fold planter marketplace today,” said Mike Cleveland, Great Plains Vice President of Sales. These include 15-inch single- and twin-row configurations, as well as 20-, 22-, 30-, 36-, and 38-inch single-row designs.
