Question: I’m interested in adding starter fertilizer equipment to my clients’ planters but unsure what type of placement is best. Is it better to use a coulter mounted application, in-furrow application, or a trail behind application? I’m concerned about bringing up moist soil in my clients’ no-till fields that could disturb the planting depth. I’m also concerned that the application method could change down pressure requirements in highly variable no-till soil conditions, leading to inconsistent planting depth. Do you have a review that answers my questions?
