It’s one thing to test equipment when soil, moisture and other conditions are just right. But to truly evaluate performance, you need to measure it against the toughest conditions. That’s exactly what one of the country’s most well-known farm families did this spring. And the 2000 series Early Riser® planter delivered.
Watch the video to learn how the 2150 Early Riser planter performed on the South Dakota farm operated by Ag PhD Radio and TV hosts Darren and Brian Hefty under what Darren calls some of the worst planting conditions they’ve faced.
The Heftys’ farm manager, Mike Lueders, cites several factors that helped the Early Riser produce the best crop emergence they’ve ever achieved:
- Rugged, durable design that allowed them to plant at speeds up to 10 mph
- Consistent seed spacing at speeds from 4 to 10 mph
- Automatic down pressure settings that maintained proper seed depth across the field
