Great Plains Enhances Award-Winning Anhydrous Coulter

Mon, 31/10/2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SALINA, KS – Great Plains has reintroduced its award-winning high-speed anhydrous coulter with several improvements to enhance the efficiency, accuracy, and versatility of the Nutri-Pro® precision nutrient application line.

Released in 2014, the revolutionary anhydrous coulter earned a 2015 AE50 Award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, but Great Plains engineers remained dedicated to making this good product even better.

The newly-released coulter includes:

Enhanced residue flow through increased clearance – New square tube sealer arms allow for better residue resistance with new outside sitting closing arms.
Improved closing wheel option for light, wet soils – One closing wheel option features a notched blade for conventional to min-till field conditions and wet field conditions.
Low-disturbance coulter option – A double-edge Samurai Turbo Blade coulter option offers less disturbance than the regular Turbo Blade.
Improved wear resistance option in abrasive soil – Hard-surfaced NH3 tines are available with or without a front foot.

In contrast to rigid shank machines, the anhydrous coulter is designed to endure high-residue conditions with minimal ground disturbance. With a 22" blade, these Nutri-Pro models place NH3 up to 6" deep at a speed of 8 miles per hour. Spider closing wheels tightly seal nutrients in the ground with minimal loss and maximized efficiency.
