Coulter systems put nitrogen in the middle of the row - 15 inches from the base of the plant. That slows uptake and lowers efficiency. Studies show 25% more nitrates in the plant when nitrogen is applied at the base of the plant. That has led to an average yield increase of over six bushels compared to coulter systems.
360 Y-DROP Sidedress places nitrogen just inches from the stalk base. It extends the application window, plus there are no costly bearings and coulters to replace.
