Tough Planting Conditions Don't Frighten this Illinois Farmer

Published September 1, 2015 by Kinze Manufacturing


Today, Sparks of Innovation takes you to Hoopeston, Illinois, where Duane Sheppard counts on Kinze planters to plant seeds in the right place, at the right depth, even in the toughest planting conditions. “The dependability and durability (of Kinze planters) are second to none. Under certain conditions, when the ground is tough and hard, the Kinze planter will do the job and put it in the ground. And it will put it in right, and we don’t have to worry about bending or breaking parts. It’s just a heavy-duty, durable, simple machine,” said Duane, who plants with a Kinze 3600 16-32 split row planter. 


Watch the latest installment of Kinze in the Field to see why Duane thought he’d “died and gone to Heaven” when he purchased his first Kinze planter back in 2002. And click here to view his full testimonial.
