Calvin Atkinson, of Dollar Family Farms, answered last week’s question correctly: “Vacuum planters. Monosem to be exact. Seeds are pulled to plate which runs vertically. They are then scraped off at seed opener.”

Most of these are bought to plant peanuts but they are used for corn and canola and soybeans and other crops as well.  Donalsonville’s own Steve Spooner was involved with the twin row concept and planter development.

Here’s some corn planted with that planter, it does a good job. Most of these are bought to plant peanuts but they are used for corn and canola and soybeans and other crops as well.
