Martin spading closing wheels move soil toward the seed at planting depth, while lifting and fracturing the surface layer to achieve compaction-free closing of the seed trench in wet, hard or sod conditions. With soil firmed around the seed from each side and the surface layer loosened, crops emerge sooner and planting can be done at the proper depth, even in wetter conditions, without fear of crushed soil above the seed prevention emergence.
- Speeds up warming of the row area
- Closing wheel arm pressure can be greatly reduced
- Seed trench is closed in the most severe conditions
- Seed depth does not have to be raised to insure emergence
- Soil above the seed is loose and slightly mounded allowing quicker emergence in a compaction-free environment
- Sidewall compaction is greatly reduced
