The Grain Temp Guard is a grain monitoring system that helps you ensure your hard work doesn’t go to waste. The Dual Temp (DT) probes and alarm system will help you efficiently monitor hot spots throughout your bins. Modular add-ons, including a weather station and fan control system, are coming soon!
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.
These will include a WEATHER STATION and FAN CONTROL SYSTEM which will only allow the fan to run when temperatures and humidity are within the range that the grain manager/farmer has preset. More specifically, the fan will not run if humidity is too high or perhaps even too low (to prevent over drying) or when the temperature is too high or too low, both programmable. There will be additional modules that will allow the DELAYED START of multiple fans, a RESETTABLE TIMER that will let you know how many hours your fans did run, and lastly, a MANUAL OVERRIDE.

Spring 2019 was as frustrating in Rich Hill, Missouri as in many parts of the Midwest. Too many rainy days and not enough sunny days! After struggling through April and May and continuing to have problems, one being our inability to close the seed furrow in all the variable soil conditions we were encountering (mostly WET). Our neighbor bought some Germinator Closing Wheels earlier in the season and was getting results that were much more successful than ours. After seeing his results I parked our two planters and jumped in the pickup and drove to Iowa purchasing 128 Germinator Closing Wheels for our two planters. My initial reaction to the results was quite positive, but as they say, “the proof is in the pudding”; after seeing our harvest results, I am an enthusiastic supporter of the Farm Shop MFG Germinator Closing Wheel! That day I drove up to Iowa was well worth my time.
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 on stale tillage due to the frequent rain showers. In every case our germination rate and stand was better than expected! When digging behind the planter we always found the total destruction of the furrow sidewall and ideal seed to soil contact.
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.
