The Germinator is a closing wheel that replaces your current rubber wheels. It promotes consistent germination and emergence. Steel construction helps reduce down pressure needs in heavy soil and no till conditions. The wheels are highly effective in all tillage and soil conditions. Designed to clean rapidly, it works in all soil conditions.
I feel fortunate to have had Germinator closing wheels on my planter in 2018. Here in Northwest Iowa it was extremely difficult spring with frequent rain delays and the complication of occasionally needing to plant on stale tillage. The Germinator closing wheels system worked great in normal conditions, wet spots and where crusts had developed…
These wheels are a welcome OEM product replacement on my planter, it will be a fun planting season knowing the wheels will remain clog-free and produce better results at the same time.
Most seed companies guarantee a 95% germination rate. When using the Germinator, expectations of a 98% rate is not out-of-line.
