We have used several sets of the Stainless steel fertilizer tubes for the CaseIH Planter. In some applications, we have replaced the old disk and pipe arrangement. We are finding that the customers much prefer the tube because it is more precise in placement and reduces the amount of fertilizer that accumulates on the press wheel. In my opinion, using the orifice and putting the fertilizer under pressure is much better than letting it dribble in the trench. We will probably use the tubes exclusively from now on.
