Conventional vegetable planters can be modified for farmer use in high-residue conservation systems.

Farmers can modify conventional vegetable planters for use in high-residue conservation systems.

Because conservation systems do not plow, the transplanter must be able to:

  • Break compacted soil layers, while disturbing surface soil as little as possible.
  • Push cover crop residues aside to prevent jamming, hairpinning, or blowout.
  • Provide good soil to seedling contact.
