Placement of fertilizer in relation to seed is critical to planting success. Concord's Disc Drill SD opener features an optional mid-row bander to apply liquid, dry or NH3 fertilizer directly in between the seed trenches created by the drill's two opposing discs. The discs also provide the unique capability to throw soil back over the fertilizer immediately after its application — no other drill on the market is capable of capturing and retaining NH3 with such a high degree of efficiency.
Discs are spaced 6 inches apart, with the optional mid-row banding placing the fertilizer only 3 inches from each row and up to 1.5 inches below the seed. This puts the fertilizer exactly where it should be to feed the seeds, and not the weeds. Competitive drills typically space rows 10 inches apart, putting fertilizer a full 5 inches away from the seed.
Concord uses a patented opposing single-disc design that is remarkable simple to operate and maintain. Each opener has just two bearings that need to be greased once a year. Since it requires no in-season maintenance, you can work nonstop in the field. Even more, Concord's SD opener has 75 percent fewer moving parts than competitors, meaning there are fewer things that can go wrong.
You don't need an 80-foot-wide drill to cover a lot of ground quickly. In fact, a 50-foot Concord Disc Drill SD can cover more acres per hour by traveling at recommended speeds of 8 to 10 miles per hour, compared with wider competitive drills traveling at only 6 miles per hour.
What people say about Concord Seeding equipment
"Our planting season window is so short you have to be setup with equipment like this so when the conditions are right you can plant."
“We’re able to dial in down pressure right from the cab based on field conditions. Based on how we see the drill reacting, we can modify pressure from the cab very easily to get the best seedbed possible.”
“The Concord has minimal moving parts. It’s basically a trouble-free machine. We have a 50-foot drill that we can run 8 or 9 mph. I’ve seeded 500 acres of soybeans in a day.”
