Exapta Solutions releases three updated or new products with the goal of helping farmers achieve precise seed placement and ultimately higher crop yields.
The Mojo Wire kit has been streamlined for dry Keeton seed firmer tails. The kit eliminates the need for plastic blocks, so the wire clamps directly onto the firmer. The upshot is faster assembly and a 55% price savings. The additional tension provides the ability to wipe off mud on the furrow sidewall. In addition, the extra pressure provides more uniform emergence. (The liquid-ready Keeton tails still need the blocks to hold the plastic tubing.) Price: $9.
The new Mojo Wire available for Flo-Rite seed firmers applies two to five times more pressure to ensure faster germination. It fits both the universal (wrap-around or scraper-mount) Flo Rites and the style that straps directly to the seed tube. Price: $9.
An improved seed bounce flap for John Deere 50, 60, and 90 drills features a forward bend to help close the triangular gap caused with straight flaps. This 20° forward bend helps keep more seeds in the furrow and also helps deflect seeds downward into the furrow bottom before dust and chunks of sidewall fall in ahead of the seed. This results in better seed placement. Price: $4.63 for flaps that include the bolt.
