Steve Wiese of Wilber, Nebraska

Steve Wiese owns a front-folding Kinze 3800 24 row with bulk fill air seed delivery system, EdgeVac vacuum meters and the Ag Leader Integra monitor.

"The Kinze planter (3800) has worked extremely well for us. I went with the EdgeVac meters. I like the simplicity and I believe seed placement might be a little better. Also, I have a lot of farms where the yield environment doubles from the tops of hills to the bottoms. Seed placement and population are critical. Plus, with automatic clutches, I don't waste seed on turns and end rows. These are all huge advancements in technology. And with today's cost of seed, pay back is real quick." - Steve Wiese
