What’s a good 2by2 brand for on a planter? I have a JD 7100 and I want the fertilizer under the seed

It’s not technically 2x2, but the Conceal system from Precision planting looks pretty neat

Yeah it does, I’m just not sure what’s out there that will work on such an old planter

If your fields are square, yetter makes a nice setup that goes between the Furrow opener and the closing system model 2968-021. Can be ordered with a single blade for one side 2x2 or double blade for both sides of row.

You get way less trash plugging with the Coulter placed behind the Furrow opener/Tru vees vs having the 2x2 in front

Totally tubular makes a really good under seed placement tube, we’ve used them for years and never had any trouble with them

Those look good! When you were planting beans how many gallons of fertilizer do you use under the seed? See a yield bump doing liquid instead of dry broadcast?

we usually don’t with beans , guys that do put 2.5 gal in furrow, we’re going to try it next year I think. In corn 5 gallons definitely helps our stand and gets it going out of the ground.
