Don’t miss this session at FarmSmart Expo:  New Planter Technology – The iCubed Water Jet Planter – James Dyck and Ben Rosser, OMAFRA
This new concept in planting uses high pressure water jet to create the seed furrow and will compare to conventional planter units. We will explore how the two compare in cutting residue, forming a seed trench, placing the seed and closing the seed trench. How does this system change the paradigm of crop planting?
