Winter weather has arrived across the state with icy slick roads yesterday and today, but it is winter, and we have been spoiled to date. As you know the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky kicks off this Wednesday! Our first load of equipment went down on Monday and we have made several trips this week to prepare for the show. For those going we are in booth #3152 in the west wing, just look for our covered trailer in our booth. This week has had a lot of buzz about the H2Ohio project which is Gov. Dewines mission to help improve lake Eries waters by incentivizing farmers to participate in certain practices. Sub surface placing phosphorus, variable ration phosphorous, planting cover crops, incorporating manure, and a few more practices are being cost shared in the program. We will share more information as we get it but for now farmers need to meet with FSA and SWCD to get signed up for the 4 year program. We recorded a new podcast this week starring our very own Gary Fennig. Gary talks about the beginning of Fennig Equipment and what he sees in the future, click the link to the left to give it a listen. We hope to see everyone at the farm show next week, safe travels.


Have a Great Weekend!

H2Ohio What is it? How does it affect me? 
Guys this is big. An opportunity to take voluntary measures to either get cost share for practices you are already doing or utilize cost share to help move your operation to where you want to go. Basically if you ever wanted to jump into strip tillage or cover crops but it did not financially benefit your operation at the time, it certainly does now. This is a great opportunity for us as farmers to take part and participate in this program to show that we not only care about our resources but that we do farm in an environmentally friendly fashion. If you are in one of the 14 eligible counties contact your SWCD and attend one of the meetings help to learn more.
Over 320 farmers gathered in Delphos Wednesday to learn more about H2Ohio.

Tuning in your Planter Fertilizer Setup
There are hundreds of ways to plumb up your planter fertilizer system. This week I sat down with our planter fertilizer specialist Kurt Flaute to get our go-to setups.
  1. Always make sure you are using Redballs instead of a cast iron flow divider. The divider is prone to plugging and does not serve as a flow indicator. WIth Redballs we can use them as a flow dvider and a blockage monitor at the same time.
  2. In-Furrow Options. It really boils down to 2 options, Totally Tubular and Keeton Seed Firmers. The Keeton places the liquid on top of the seed while Totally Tubular places it under the seed. We like the added firming action that comes with the firmer and if you are using an in furrow insecticide of some sort that must coat the seed it is a great option. For those using higher salt products the under seed advantage of Totally Tubular is the way to go.
  3. Always use check valves and orifices roughly 12-20" from ground engagement. Check valves lock the line when line pressure gets below 5 psi so no fertilizer can drip when the planter is up. This leads to a huge cost savings and makes fertilizer mess free. Orifices are a must, they regulate flow, and equalize pressure in the system to make sure each row gets the same amount. Orifices require a lot of consideration to speed, pressure, rates to get the correct one. Consult Kurt (567-286-2021) to be sure you are using the correct orifice, if not it could cost you big time.

In this video Adam breaks down planter fertilizer setups and what to look for this spring before heading to the field.
