Twenty-inch row corn planter
Narrow defined traffic path issues solved by a CFI retro-fit
Sansgaard Group, Inc., is a private seed company located in Story City, Iowa. The company has been using advanced technology and equipment innovations to pursue an increase in yield per acre. They decided to test a new planter which altered the row spacing from 30” rows to twin 20” rows. This has increased the number of plants per acre by as much as 30–35 percent!
The twin 20” row spacing made fertilizer and chemical application virtually impossible with standard row crop tires. CFI Tire Service provided a narrow tire and wheel solution, complete with on-site installation.
We asked Sansgaard for feedback, this is what they had to say…
“CFI set up this tractor to perform perfectly for the defined tire traffic required for dry spread application."
