Planting Equipment

Agricultural machinery and equipment is what helps farmers to produce the goods that consumers want and need. Without the appropriate equipment, farmers would not be efficient enough to provide the food that we need. Planting equipment reduces the amount of hard labor farmers spend on doing their work and allows farmers to produce larger amounts of higher quality products. You’ll need planting equipment to place seeds in the soil for germination. The right amount of seed needs to be planted at the proper depth in the soil.

Planting Equipment

  • Planter; places seeds in the soil at the proper rate, depth and spacing

    • Corn, cotton and many vegetable crops are planted with planters.

  • Drill; plants seeds for germination

    • Soybeans, wheat, oats, and ryegrass are a few crops that are commonly planted with drills.

  • Tender; transports seed and grain to and from the field

Safety Tips

  • Planters

    • Always lower the planter to the ground when it’s not being used. When planter is on the ground, perform frequent service work and adjustments

    • Use jack stands of block when working under the planter to prevent it from falling

    • Do not clean, lubricate, or adjust the machine when it is in motion

    • Handle agricultural chemicals with appropriate protective gear

    • Transportation Safety

      • Be sure machinery is equipped with adequate lights and reflectors

      • Check local and state regulations for proper transportation position

      • Use transport links to take the load off the hydraulic cylinder when equipment is moved more than a couple miles

      • Use flashing warning lights when necessary

      • Keep equipment to the right of the center line when travelling

      • If transporting long distances, haul by truck or trailer

  • Drills

    • Be sure the drill is properly attached to the tractor before filling the seed or fertilizer hoppers, otherwise the drill will tip over

    • When servicing or adjusting, always lower the drill to the ground and shut off the tractor

    • Reduce tractor speed when operating over rough or uneven ground

    • Reduce speed when traveling down hills

    • Avoid sharp turns to prevent drill from catching on tires

    • When hitching or unhitching the grain drill, use the parking stands or jacks to safely support the drill until it’s firmly attached or parked.
