I have a 2 row Pequea 3 pt planter. It uses JD 7200 planting units. Can this be converted to no-til? Has anyone had success with this? Thanks.
Phil

Martin Row Cleaners without a doubt!!!!

Couple that with spiked closing wheels, Keaton seed firmers, drag chains, and RID guage wheels and you will have a great no-till planter.

Contact Pequea planter. I am sure they have the parts you need or can make them for you. Nice people to work with and they really know their planters.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

A set of nose mount coulters on the units should do the trick, OR you could put a bar up front and put on a set of regular coulters. Scalloped blades work best, and Keeton seed firmers really help in no-till for seed to soil contact.

You must have gotten the ad for the round-up ready sweet corn. I haven't found the pricing on it but the ad I have says they will give you $2.00 off per 1000 seeds.

yep I got it from Rupp. Seminis is pairing with several seed companies on it. I know that just the Bt sweet corn seed is a couple dollars more per thousand seeds than the same w/o the Bt gene. (providence : BC0805). I also wonder how much you will have to buy. BC0805 and a couple others I could get in 25000 seed lots but some you had to buy 100000 seeds. I didn't plant any Bt corn this year. Last year I did but still had worm troubles plus stink bug damage so I still had to spray.

i wondered when no till sweet corn would be available,

knew it would only be a matter of time.

seed company rep told me it takes lot of money to develop a no till type seed.

they did not sell that much sweet corn seed to off set the cost of development.

It is only available in about 3 varities that I know of. Two of them are supersweets(sh2) and have to be isolated, the third is Temptation an se corn. I have gone to growing all synergystic corns, sweeter than se and not the isolation requirement of the sh2. I have also heard that there are poast protected sweet corns on the market but I don't know what they are. Also I have heard that all Bt corns also Harmony herbicide resistant. Not sure about those last 2 items.
