LIQUID AND DRY FERTILIZER ON KINZE PLANTERS

By: Kinze Manufacturing

We know growers need options for liquid and dry fertilizer. That’s why our spectrum of products provides a variety of ways to meet these requirements at the time of planting. Both in bulk fill and row unit hopper options based on the planter model and row configurations.

Our bulk fill liquid fertilizer tanks range from 300 to 600 gallon capacity depending on the model, and similarly for row unit liquid fertilizer. Dry row unit fertilizer capacity ranges from 1,100 pounds up to 4,400 pounds.

Don’t want the onboard fertilizer options? No problem. An optional rear trailer hitch for liquid fertilizer is available to tow liquid fertilizer with three or four wheel trailers behind the 350036003660 and 4900 planter models. Note: the tow-behind option is not compatible with squeeze pump options.
