Precision Planting Introduces FurrowJet
In a category of its own, Precision Planting introduces FurrowJet, a planter fertilizer attachment designed for ideal starter fertilizer placement and nutrient absorption. FurrowJet differentiates itself from in-furrow and 2x2 attachments by placing a dual band near the furrow (3⁄4") with an optional third band in-furrow.
FurrowJet mounts behind the seed tube on Precision Planting’s quick-attach Keeton firmer bracket. The attachment rides in the furrow just above the seed and uses wings that angle downward to cut into the sidewall and place fertilizer in a dual band ¾" away from the seed on both sides of the furrow.
The near-furrow placement combined with accurate placement enables increased rates of common starter fertilizers while avoiding seed-burn risk.

Landoll Adds Tandem Disc Harrows
To meet the demands of heavy residue and cool soil environments, Landoll adds the 6231 Tandem Disc Harrows to its lineup. The series is available in 21' to 36' widths with 24", 26" or 28" diameter disc blades on most models. Blade spacing is 7" or 83⁄4". The 7" spacing and 28" blade diameters allow for more high-residue primary tillage applications and a more smooth seedbed.
Similar to the 6200 Series tandem disc harrows, the 6231 models can multi-task with a high ratio of weight per foot, walking tandems with more heavy-duty tires and a single-point hydraulic depth control. To work with heavier rear attachments and provide more stability, the capacity of the fore/aft leveler has been increased. There’s more access to adjust the front gauge wheels and a front-accessible grease bank for the walking tandem axles.

Kuhn Krause Adds to Strip-Till Series
Available in four- to 16-row configurations, the Gladiator 1205M strip-till system features a new three-point mounted toolbar. Designed to reduce maintenance, the folding toolbar features hardened pins and bushings at pivot points and a lift-assist option. A specially designed angled hinge allows the wings to fold slightly forward when folding over-center. To maintain target depth, the angled hinge causes the wings to resist upward movement in field working position. Hydraulic cylinders and hoses are mounted externally for easy access. The model retains many features used on the Gladiator series, including the ST-PRO row units, Drop Zone nutrient placement system and Strik’r soil conditioner.
