Acra-Plant V-Shots and V-Slice Inserts
Better stands due to improved seed-to-soil contact.

• Eliminates seed roll-and-bounce for uniform and early emergence

• Acra-Tuff chrome carbide for long wear life

The Six Most Important Characteristics of A Proper Crop Stand, and How Acra-Plant V-Slice Technology Achieves the Goal:

1. Fast Germination: Seed is dropped precisely into the V-slice formed by the insert yielding superior seed-to-soil contact in moist, firm soil. Seed-to-soil contact is essential for fast germination.

2. Uniform and Fast Emergence: This occurs when seeds are planted in moisture but not too deep or at varying depths. The V-slice technology assures that the soil is not disturbed beside or below the seed, with less chance of drying out. In No-Till and Min-Till planting environments, the notched discs mellow the soil above the seed and allow for easier plant emergence right above the seed with less opportunity for crusting which inhibits emergence.

3. Early Root Development: Acra-Plant V-slice inserts and notched retrofit discs create a firm soil environment surrounding the seed to retain moisture and allow for healthy primary root development. Feeder or secondary roots depend on the moisture above the seed as well as healthy primary roots. Tight, uniform seed placement and firm soil right above the seed assist in the retention of moisture for healthy root development.


4. Uniform Plant Spacing in the Row: Acra-Plant V-slice technology forms a “V” that traps the seed and stops seed bounce and roll. In the Min-Till and No-Till environments, notched discs assure that he soil is prepared to accept the V-slice insert and form the perfect V. Seeds that do not tumble, roll or bunch assure “picket fence” planting for the most uniform stand.

5. Proper Plant Population: Acra-Plant minimizes the need for over-planting due to seed loss, skips and bunches. Proper competition for nutrients and availability of sunlight assures the best stand, and the superior performance of Acra-Plant V-slice technology assures the most effective use of planting equipment. Seeds per acre can usually be reduced with the use of Acra-Plant V-slice inserts and notched discs, reducing seed costs while improving the stand.

6. Correct Leaf Position: Seed kernels caught lengthwise and on the edge in a perfect V-shaped trench germinate with primary roots growing down the row in the angle of the V.   Leaves grow perpendicular to the primary root growth, increasing the potential for leaves to grow across the rows for maximum sunlight utilization. Does this sound crazy? Grow some seeds on your windowsill and watch the leaves position themselves with respect to the primary roots.
