Banded nitrogen placement
How Conceal Works
Hidden Planter Fertility
Add fertilizer when and where plants need it
Put Nitrogen Where It Should Be
Conceal is a simple nutrient placement device that places fertilizer in a band, and incorporates it into the soil, where the plant will be able to get nutrients during the critical ear set stage. Apply either a single or a dual band of nutrients, down beside the row.
Consistent Placement Around Every Turn
Since the knife places the fertilizer directly beside the seed, the distance from fertilizer to seed is always consistent. And, since the knife is running in conjunction with the gauge wheel, it places the fertilizer at a constant depth relative to the seed.
Completely Integrated Into the Row Unit
Conceal almost can't be seen on the row unit, tucked away inside the gauge wheel, where it does its job without increased row unit length or bulk that typically comes with nitrogen attachments. With the knife mounted to the front of the row unit, it does not interfere with the gauge wheel.
Broadcast Applications are Inefficient
A more efficient way to place fertilizer is to band the fertilizer in the row, just like we place the seeds. These banded nutrients should also be placed under the soil surface where they will stay in the soil, instead of being prone to volatilization when spread on top of the soil surface.
proven by trials
Conceal Trial Results ‣ Soybeans
See which fertilizer product applied through Conceal returned almost a $37/acre net profit in our trials.
Conceal Split Nitrogen Trials ‣ Corn
By shifting portions of your nitrogen application to the planter, you'll gain almost a $50/acre return on investment.
Conceal Single vs. Dual Band Trials ‣ Corn
In this study, a dual-band application of nitrogen beat the single-band application by 7.1 Bu/A.
Conceal + FurrowJet = Five Application Points
FurrowJet places fertilizer on top of the seed and 3/4" away from the seed on either side of the seed, which is the ideal placement for phosphorous starters and other seed-safe products. Whereas, Conceal places nitrogen in the soil 3 inches away from the seed on either side of the furrow.
