Colchester, Ill. - The new 10,000 Magnum Opener from Yetter Farm Equipment allows growers to apply fertilizer early in the spring, side-dress earlier after planting and fertilize in the fall. Speed, versatility and minimal soil disturbance save time in the field and provide a return on investment, making the new Magnum the perfect fit for growers looking to place fertilizer where and when the crop needs it.
“The Magnum operates effectively at speeds of 6-10 miles per hour with lower horsepower requirements and fuel consumption,” said Andy Thompson, Yetter territory manager. “The lower draft requirement gives it an advantage over many conventional fertilizer application tools.”
 The Magnum’s single-disc design places fertilizer while preserving ground cover and reducing the opportunity for erosion and weed germination. The new walking tandem wheel option firms the soil as it rolls through the field, further minimizing closing disturbance. The 10,000 Magnum also allows growers to side-dress earlier without moving soil onto the corn plant.
 “The spring-loaded knife is designed with a carbide insert on the leading edge. The beaver tail allows for quick and easy replacement,” said Thompson.
