UFC to Host AGCO Crop Tours

UFC is excited to be partnering with AGCO for their Summer Crop Tours.  We have two plot locations:  Judson and Winthrop, so you can choose the date and location that fits your schedule best.

UFC used an AGCO White Planter decked out with Precision Planting parts to put together a planting demo using AGCO plot standards.  The purpose of these 10 Acre plots is to show results of planter performance. 

Below is a list of trials that were performed:
-Planting Depth:  demo’s of 1”, 1.5”, 2”, 2.5”, 3”, and 3.5”
-Down Pressure:  different passes with light, heavy, and automatic down pressure
-Spacing and Singulation:  “goof plates” were used to show the difference in singulation and spacing
-Row Cleaning:  passes with and without row cleaners
-Closing Wheel Pressure:  passes were made with different pressures on the closing wheels

Precision Planting’s PTI trailer will also be at both events.  The day will be split between stations at the plot and going through the Precision Planting PTI trailer. 

Event Details:
Both plots will take place from 9AM to 3PM with lunch being provided.
