• #3 Seeding Accuracy

Seeding Accuracy

SINGULATED ROW CROPS
Seed singulation is unmatched with the Air-Pro® meters and Clear-Shot® seed tubes utilized on Great Plains planters. Consistent singulation maximizes each seed’s yield potential and promotes the efficient usage of other inputs as well.

ACCURATE SMALL GRAIN METERS
No matter the crop you are drilling, the fluted feed cups on Great Plains grain drills are well-known for achieving an accurate and consistent seeding rate. Being simple to operate, our fluted feed cups set the standard for small grain metering.

CONSISTENT DEPTH CONTROL
Placing the seed at a consistent depth is vital in achieving uniform emergence and healthy crop stands. To avoid inconsistent seeding depths, check to ensure that the down pressure is adequate and uniform across all row units prior to planting.

SEED-TO-SOIL CONTACT
Proper seed-to-soil contact is achieved with the closing wheel system on planter row units or press wheels on grain drills. Make sure to match the appropriate closing to your field conditions and use a seed firmer to ensure the seed is placed firmly in the bottom of the seed trench.
