Broadcasting nitrogen before planting is an inefficient means of getting fertility to the plant. We only plant a row every few feet, so why spread fertilizer evenly across the entire field? A more efficient way to place fertilizer is to band the fertilizer in the row, just like we place the seeds.
Banded nutrients can reduce the total amount of needed fertility by up to 30% while maintaining the same yield level. These banded nutrients should also be placed under the soil surface where they will stay in the soil, instead of being prone to volatilization when spread on top of the soil surface.
Conceal almost can’t be seen on the row unit, tucked away inside the gauge wheel, where it does it’s job without increased row unit length or bulk that typically comes with nitrogen attachments.
Conceal is a simple nutrient placement device that places fertilizer in a band, incorporated into the soil, where the plant will be able to get those nutrients during the critical ear set stage.
Since the knife is placing the fertilizer directly beside the seed and not in front of or behind the seed, the distance from the fertilizer to the seed is always consistent.
- Consistent placement
- Reduced amount of fertilizer needed
- Compact unit
//Their service is excellent, I love working with them. Cody is like my right hand man.//
//I enjoy working with Crossroads. If I have any questions, they are right there. They come and drop off any parts that are needed as well as help me get everything squared up, working well, and looking really nice.//
//We had a tractor fire. A week later we got a new tractor and they had everything back up and running for us, so we were able to get our planting done. That’s the service I want.//
