In-furrow starter fertilizer placement
see it work
More Than Just a Seed Firmer
Apply starter fertilizer in the furrow while firming.
Firm + Fertilize
FurrowJet offers a lot of flexibility since your nutrient management plan is as unique as your fields are. FurrowJet firms the seed in the trench and then places bands of fertilizer on and near the seed.
Choose Where To Apply Fertilizer
Apply fertilizer through the center of the firmer.
Apply fertilizer 3/4" away from the seed on either side.
CENTER + DUAL
Apply fertilizer in all three locations.
Let's Talk Phosphorus
Put Phosphorus Where The Plant Needs It
And watch your crops thrive.
Phosphorus Doesn't Move
Phosphorus fertilizer is immobile in soil, which means that it needs to be placed where a plant will be able to access it. Broadcasting the immobile nutrient across the entire field doesn't always make sense, because it won't move to the rows where the plants are.
Great Fertilizer Product + Great Precision Placement = Yield
Farm Journal Test Plot
Starter test plots were planted in May 2016. Within 24 hours of planting, this field received excessive rainfall for a short amount of time, which played a role in the results.
"The large yield responses show the effect of starter fertilizer placement and the horsepower it provides to mitigate early season stress," Ken Ferrie said. "The fact we were able to weatherproof this plot by replicating it across the field makes the large yield increases more believable."
The first study was a comparison of the check to FurrowJet applying 3 gallons in-furrow and 10 gallons through the wings. The second study compared the check to in-furrow only, FurrowJet (tri-band), and a 2x2 with Keeton together.
PTI Farm In-Furrow Study
At the PTI farm we've been testing various fertilizer programs in-furrow with FurrowJet. We've learned that the 3-way placement of FurrowJet offers yield increase opportunities.
- In a 2021 study comparing 37 different programs in corn, we saw an average increase of 8.6 bu/a when applying fertilizer in-furrow. We also tested 24 different programs for soybeans.
- In a 2022 study we compared 40 different programs in corn and 26 in soybeans. (NEED AVERAGE STAT RESULTS HERE)

Conceal + FurrowJet = Five Application Points
Conceal is a liquid fertility attachment that places nitrogen in the soil 3 inches away from the seed on either side of the furrow. Whereas, 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.
