The Germinator Closing wheel is an innovative and modern closing wheel that has replaced the traditional and outdated rubber wheels.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. Utilize down-pressure as you have in the past. You may be able to lighten it slightly (monitor results if making changes). It is suitable in all types of soil and tillage conditions including heavy soil with no-till conditions.
Recently a Midwest company conducting high-quality practical agricultural research reported that using a superior performing closing wheels such as Germinator® closing wheels was the most cost-effective solution with the quickest most immediate rate of return, for enhancing corn or soybean production and profitability. Their research showed, closing wheels such as Germinator® could increase corn production as much as 5.1 bushels per acre and soybean production 2.5 bushels per acre.
Over the last two years multiple on-farm tests have been conducted comparing the Germinator® closing wheel with its patent pending “inner-rim-shoulder-firmer” to competitors such as Furrow Cruiser and Twister. In every challenge, Germinator® showed the best success at closing the furrow, providing high quality seed-to-soil contact, even emergence; closing down the competition. Germinator® creates a vein of firm soil encasing the seed in perfect soil contact and enhancing the soil’s ability to wick moisture to nourish and germinate the seed.
The wheels of the Germinator closing wheel are engineered in such a way that they are highly effective in all tillage and soil conditions.
The closing wheel for planters is suitable for planting soy, corn, sun flowers, sugar beats, dry beans , and other “row” crops. Due to the innovative and unique design, the Germinator closing wheel prevents air pockets and covers the seed ‘V’ properly in order to create better seed-to-soil contact.
The closing wheels for planters can be used with almost all types of planters. Since the Germinator closing wheels are one of the best planter closing wheels, the traditional closing wheels can be replaced with these modern germinator closing wheels.
Apart from this, when you are using a planter closing wheel there is no need to use the rubber ring insert options that are used in the outdated factory issued closing wheels.
