No-till planters, drills, and air seeders have to cut and handle residue, penetrate the soil to the desired seeding depth, establish proper seed-to-soil contact, and close the seed-vee. Keeping these four items in mind, a producer can evaluate the strengths or weaknesses of any piece of planting equipment and make any adjustments or changes necessary to make no-till seeding successful. The presentation contains tips to improve stand and emergence uniformity and discusses many of the common features and attachments and where they might be needed to improve performance.
