Sowing the seed of growth
We've added a new piece of equipment! This Cole Planter will make farm life a bit easier while providing a better product to you, my customers.
If you don't know what a planter is, it's a piece of equipment towed behind a tractor that sows (plants) seeds in rows throughout a field. The planter lays the seeds down in precise manner and are distributed through devices called row units. The row units are spaced evenly along the planter.
Planters vary greatly in size, from 1 row to 48, with the biggest in the world being the 48-row John Deere DB120. The space between the row units also vary greatly. The most common row spacing in the United States today is 30 inches.
