Martin Unit-Mounted Fertilizer Opener

Step 2: Place fertilizer in soil, not on trash or planter

Our fertilizer opener mounts directly to the planting unit and is compact enough to be used with our C125 and WA1360 Row Cleaners. Because the opener mounts directly to the planter unit, the fertilizer is always precisely the same distance from the seed even when planting on the contour. The lateral spacing from the seed can be 1", 2", or 3", and there are three vertical settings that allow fertilizer to be placed 3/4" above, even with, or 3/4" below seed depth. We like the way it consistently places the fertilizer in the ground without splattering it on the planter.
