The Germinator Closing wheel is an innovative and modern closing wheel that has replaced the traditional and outdated rubber wheels. The Germinator closing wheel is useful in promoting the successful and consistent germination as well as the emergence of the seed. It is made out of premium-grade steel which is helpful in reducing the risk of sidewall compaction as well as lowers the down pressure.
Farm innovation is a never-ending process with all the demands to get planting and harvest done in the most cost-effective, safe and productive way. At Farm Shop® we are excited to offer our cutting-edge product, the Germinator® for your planting needs! Keep your hard work safe with Grain Temp Guard® and our newest product, End Zone.
Farm Shop MFG, LLC manufactures agriculture equipment to make farming easy, safe, convenient, and profitable for the farmers. We are the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) who always focus on producing the most efficient and cost effective farming equipment for the farmers that can help them from the stage of planting the seed to the final stage of storing the harvested yield.
Our products are engineered to enhance the farm yield while reducing the risk of loss. Therefore, our range of agriculture equipment and agricultural machinery is manufactured from high quality and durable materials.
The range of Germinator products is devised for better germination and emergence of seeds with consistency while eliminating all the irregularities and unfavorable conditions. Whereas, the Grain Temp Guard products are engineered to make the farmers free from the stress of maintaining the right temperature and moisture content in the grain. The Alarm DT/ HT can trigger the alarm while displaying the temperature and humidity levels. Similarly, the EndZone Fan Controls manages the operation of the fan between the two set parameters of high and low-temperature points.
At Farm Shop MFG, LLC, we do the research and initiate towards developing innovative and technology-based agriculture equipment and devices that are highly useful for farmers and help in increasing production every year. Our advanced technology products have successfully managed to replace the old, outdated, and traditional agricultural machinery and methods of farming. We use modern technology in all our products.
What makes the Germinator unique is its inner-rim shoulder-firmer, which encases the seed with soil, maximizing seed-to-soil contact. It’s not just any closing wheel. Reach your yield potential!
Producers may want to recondition soybeans harvested at lower moisture contents to bring the moisture up to the market standard of 13%. On a 40-bushel-per-acre yield, harvesting soybeans at 9% moisture content, rather than 13%, is equal to 1.8 bushels of lost weight per acre. At $9 per bushel, that is $16.20 per acre.
Just as grain is dried with bin fans, soybeans can be reconditioned by operating fans during periods with the desired air temperature and relative humidity. Reconditioning requires high airflow rates for several weeks using air with an average relative humidity of about 70% to recondition soybeans to 13% during normal fall temperatures of 30°F to 60°F.

THE GERMINATOR ADVANTAGE!
Seed to Soil Contact!
My planter has never worked well on soybeans. I’ll definitely be using the Germinator wheels again and will be telling everyone I know.
After hearing about the Germinator closing wheels on a radio ad, I decided to give them a try. I realized that for the 48 years I’d farmed, I was usually disappointed with the job my various closing systems had done. This year, I was very impressed with their performance in a variety of soil conditional.
I just finished corn. No issues with the Germinator wheels whatsoever. Great seed furrow closing action in both no-till and conventional till. Thanks for making such a great product.
