Ground Zero… Where the seed meets the soil

ground-zero-crop
  • Uniform planting depth gives you the most consistent seedling emergence, getting your crop off to a good start under most site conditions.

  • A guard in front of the disc openers reduces plugging problems.
  • Truax EZ-Off Depth Bands on every disc control planting depth. Four sizes are available to accommodate planting depths of different crops.
123 Scrapers on the disc openers and the depth bands prevent moist soil from building up, compromising planting depth and seed placement.Scrapers are located:

  1. On the outside surface of the discs.
  2. Inside between the double discs.
  3. On the face of the depth band.
