  • Invest in a quality planter – this is one of the most important pieces of equipment on a farm
  • Plant 2 inches deep when soil temperatures are 57 degrees and colder and 2.25 inches deep at 60 degrees or warmer, especially after mid-May
  • Err on the heavy side of packer wheel pressures and put your nitrogen at sidedress versus all up front
