Before you go to the field

 

 

*Inspect your planter disc opener

  If a 15 inch disc has more than 1/2 inch wear it's time to

  replace.  Make sure the blade contact is 1-1.5 inches.

*Take a look at the planter drive chains

  A poorly maintained drive chain can space seeds unevenly.

*Check with us at CHS about Aventine Complete Starter

  Aventine Complete is the most effective starter and is increasing yields

  many of our customers.  It has a unique chelating agent that helps make

  your nutrients more available.

*Perform maintenance and cleaning on fertilizer equipment

  Check tubes, splitters and pumps to make sure they are not clogged and the

  system is in working order.
