Is your planter ready for a pick me up? Project Fresh Start is a one-of-a-kind effort that provides the opportunity for farmers to nominate themselves or others to be the chosen as the recipient of a corn planter makeover.
Simply write a letter to Farm Journal Editor Charlene Finck explaining why the farmer is the best choice for the makeover. Be sure to include a snapshot(s) of the planter as well as general information about the machine. The opportunity is open to any corn farmer, but special consideration will be given to a producer who has endured a personal or business hardship.
The winner’s planter will be picked up at the farm and transported to the Precision Planting pit crew—to be completely refurbished from hitch pin to closing wheels. The overhauled machine will be back on the farm in time for planting—and ready to go. In addition, Precision Planting experts will be on call to help ensure a fresh start in the spring.
E-mail entries must be received and letters must be postmarked by October 15.
Farm Journal will announce the winner the first week of November.
