Fertilizer placement

Dry high top fertilizer knifeDry high top fertilizer knife

Each easily-adjustable opener places fertilizer 2-in. to 6-in. deep, giving precise placementso the crop is being fed, not the weeds.

Independent opener force can be set between 200 lb to 500lb with a trip clearance of 12 in. to meet seeding conditions.The adjustable breakout force isextremely importantfor seeding in rocky conditions.

So, whetherusing dry, liquid, or anhydrous ammonia, the JohnDeere ConservaPak™opener has the optionsthatfit theapplication needs.

The mud-proof combination: dry-fertilizer tube and tip, code 1235, is available forthose applying dry fertilizersonly.This is recommended for running in sticky, heavy clay-type soils.However, it works well in all soil types to prevent mud from plugging the fertilizer tube opening.This opener is included as base equipment.

Ifseeding with dry fertilizer only, this option is highly recommended. The fertilizer exits the tube at a lower point, allowing growers desiring to place fertilizer at shallower depths more consistently.

The lower fertilizer exit point also allows the fertilizer to get to the bottom of the trench when more fertilizer and seed separation is desired, and for those light soils that tend to cave in the trench before the fertilizer is placed.

If operating in extreme, abrasive soil conditions, high-top knives are available.The high-top design adds carbide on the entire face of the knife, and also adds extra hard steel above the knife itself,which provides additional protection for the shank.

The high-top anhydrous ammonia (NH3) features a 1/2-in.outside diameter (OD)steel delivery tube, and features thehigh-top for added wear resistance.The NH3 knives may also be used in combination with the included dry-delivery tube forthose wanting to apply NH3 and dry fertilizers simultaneously in the same fertilizer trench.

Agronomic benefits

Implementing moisture conservation farming practices

From the start, the ConservaPak™opener was designed withagronomicallyfriendly farming practices in mind.From the precise seed and fertilizer placementto the minimal tillage disturbance system, the JohnDeere 1870 optimizes farming operations.

Hydraulic shanks are the workhorses of the 1870air-seeding tools. They provide consistent depth control for enhanced seed placement, resulting in more even emergence and more uniform crop maturityat harvest.The hydraulic shankseeding tooluses a rigid frame for strength and support.The openers are designed to allowindependent downforce for a more uniform depth across the entire width of the frame.

Seed and fertilizer separation are not compromised when seeding with the 1870.The ConservaPak design allows for banding fertilizerto6 in. within the seedbed and up to 4.5 in. of separation between the seed and fertilizer.The deep fertilizer openerdoubles as a tillage tool to shatter the hard pan for improved root development, water infiltration, and seedbed warmth.
