Planter Section Control Technology

Kurt LawtonEducation, Planting

I don’t know about you, but extended windshield time–be it going back and forth in fields, hauling grain, or traveling to a farm show–is a good time to ponder what’s next in your business.

To this end, one of the hottest precision farming tools of the year is planter section control, due to quick payback thanks to seed savings. To help you ponder more, check out this good publication compiled in 2010, “Automatic Section Control Technology for Planters,” produced by the Alabama Cooperative Extension system.

It talks about benefits, the required components, installation tips, pre-season checks and a list of companies that offer the technology. Perhaps this technology may make a good Christmas present to improve your farm operation!
