Getting your fertilizer down in tight spring or fall application windows is about more than fast field travel — especially if your application equipment doesn’t suit the soil conditions, field terrain or the way you like to farm. The new Case IH Nutri-Placer® 940 HSLD fertilizer applicator meets those objectives and more.
Featuring the new High-speed Low Disturbance (HSLD) row unit option, the Nutri-Placer 940 HSLD is made for high-speed, minimal soil disturbance and precise nutrient management, so you can cover acres fast and efficiently. The Nutri-Placer 940 HSLD is capable of speeds up to 11 mph, allowing you to cover over 900 acres in a 12-hour day.[Tweet “Cover over 900 acres a day with the new Nutri-Placer 940 HSLD fertilizer applicator.

The size of the Nutri-Placer 940 — available in widths ranging from 50 to 65 feet — combined with the efficiency of the HSLD row unit option means you can be more productive than ever, yet you’ll do so on fewer tractor hours and less fuel. Just as important, you can rest assured that you’re locking in each crop’s profit potential with better nutrient uptake. The Nutri-Placer 940 HSLD places nutrients up to 6 inches deep in the root zone — when and where crops need it most.
The innovative HSLD row unit features the new 22.6-inch single-coulter-blade design that effectively cuts through residue with minimal disturbance. In field testing, the HSLD row unit provided better residue cover and more level surface finish than other coulter-style applicators available while properly sealing nutrients. A uniform surface finish preserves valuable ground cover that helps protect highly erodible land and heavy, no-till corn conditions.
The Nutri-Placer 940 fertilizer applicator with new High-speed Low Disturbance (HSLD) row unit is made to address individual operator needs with a variety of agronomically designed coulter, shank and sealer options.
Cast-iron components and reduced maintenance keep you rolling during fall, preplant and side-dress applications. Additional new features to enhance productivity and effectiveness with the Nutri-Placer 940 HSLD include:
- 5-section flex for ground contouring
- Triple-fold transport modes
- 30-inch row spacing to meet a variety of row crop needs
- Easy leveling turnbuckles for wing wheel adjustments
- Large wing fold cylinders
- Larger standard radial tires for main transport and wing wheels
