Compaction reduces plant vigor and yield. Shallow or inconsistent planting due to poor control of planter wings also robs yield. Most planters have a “weight problem”. Excess weight in the center of the planter or improper weight distribution is a constant concern. Worried about the constant changing downforce fluctuations as you plant seed and apply fertilizer? The Martin-Till WTS is your planter’s solution!
