News, events, and happenings in Colquitt County agriculture.

I had the opportunity recently to attend a County Agent training on planter setup and maintenance organized by Simmer Virk and Wes Porter, UGA Precision Ag Specialists. They discussed numerous topics such as opening discs, down force, planter depth and soil conditions during planting. If planter maintenance and setup is over looked then producers can face uneven stands which could result in lower yields. Below is a checklist to help producers with setup and maintenance as planting season fast approaches.
