Precision planters are typically used to seed conventional row crops such as corn or soybeans, however producers are experimenting with them to plant small grains and other crops. This research program aims to evaluate the use of precision row crop planters as an all-encompassing seeding system rather than a tool for a small group of specific crops.
This project will address if planters can help durum overcome stagnant yields in recent years and will focus on irrigated locations to maximize yield potential. Visit the Perfectly Placed project page to learn more.
